Hide buffer display icon

Hi all!

I',m using the latest version of JW Player. I'm using it for display my network camera stream. Everything is perfect except 1 thing. During the stream a buffer icon is always displayed and i can't hide it. I already tried many variations like: icons: false icons: "false" icons=false icons="false" non if them worked for me. here is my html source:

<script type="text/javascript">
, file:""
, autoStart: false
, mute: true
, rtmp:{
, deliveryType: "streaming"
, width: 640
, height: 480
, player: {
modes: {
linear: {
controls: {
stream: {
, enabled: false
, shows: {
streamTimer: {
enabled: true
, tickRate: 100

I tried controls: false and it worked but it hide everything, the whole control bar. I'd like to hide only the buffer icon (maximum the play and pause on the middle but not the whole control bar).
