Hide control bar, but keep pause/stop upon click

Hello JWPlayer support,

I would like to hide control bar and keep pause/stop upon click behaviour.
I tried `controls: false`, but it removes pause/stop upon click feature as well.

I understand if you don't have direct configuration option which support this.
May be there is some other way via API. Please suggest. Thanks.

You could create your own pause button using the API’s play() call, or you use the onDisplayClick() call to then call play(). Here’s a code example of the second option:


Hope this helps,
