No JS Player

I apologize if this has been documented elsewhere, but a search didn't lead to anything relevant.

Is it possible to use the JW Platform to display a video to users who have JavaScript disabled?

I had assumed I could just put the iframe embed code inside a noscript tag to take care of those users, but apparently not. The page that get's "iframed" uses the JS code, so if JS is off neither embed code will work. The iframe embed just results in an empty gray rectangle.

Obviously I can just provide a download link for no-JS users. Do you really not support an embed that works without JavaScript?

Our player requires javascript to initiate. Given how there is essentially no web page that is usable without javascript these days, this should be a minor concern.

Kind regards,
