Giant play button blocks content while paused
Hi, as a new user, I have the following suggestion aimed at the creators of JW Player but since I don't have an account I can't make suggestions directly but must post to community.
I am using JW Player for online course (CISA) but am also considering adding online tutorials for installing and using our software products. Overall, I think it's a pretty well optimized for training, but I do have one suggestion:
When you pause a video, a giant "Play" button with a blue circle background appears in the middle of the screen. This button obscures the content behind it and is very frustrating if you are trying to look at details or read a dense set of text by the video creator! There are several alternatives: make the button transparent, put the button outside the area of the video content, or just don't put one at all: if user moves their mouse they see the slider at the bottom, and the button at the left is either Pause or Play.
