Gapless Playlist

I have the exact same use case as this user is describing:

"We are attempting to create a video playlist in which there is zero gap between each video. Currently on the playlist we have created to test this, we get about a one second of buffering between videos. We would like to get the buffering down to zero. How can we do this?"

I'd like to know if this is now possible in JWPlayer (as at the time when the post was made the answer was no) either using MediaSource or other HTML5 API?

My name is Timoor Kurdi and I’m a Support Engineer at JW Player.

The answer is still a no, as the player does not have a way to prebuffer the next video, so there will always be a small gap.

Understood, and thanks for the reply. That said if I wanted to have that custom built for the player is there anyway to have that done? Let me know if that's something that's feasible, thank you!

You’re welcome, I would have to say no as that is not something we would be working on in the near future.
