How to hide the Play Icon

Some of our customers have recently asked us if it is possible to change the size of the Play icon on our Standard Players? We have not implemented such a feature yet for several reasons (including making sure we won’t mess up the clean admin interface), but what we have done instead is to implement a simple check-box in case you want to hide the Play Icon.

When you go to your Player library to create a new (or edit one of your existing) Video Players, you will now find this new checkbox in the “Controls”-section.

Video player functionality

Here’s how a Video Player with a white color theme and the Title bar/Control Panel activated could look like with and without the Play Icon.

With the Play Icon:

Without the Play Icon:

Please note that a viewer will always be able to click anywhere inside the player to view or pause a video, regardless if you activate or hide the Play Icon – they don’t have to click on Play/Pause in the control panel.

We hope you will find this feature useful – if you have any questions, just beep us an e-mail.
