JW Player in a popup stopping parent player



Hi all,

I want to build a page with jw player showing some videos.
Then I would like to have a button next to the player. If you click this button a popup will show containing another video also showing with jw player.

If I do it just like that, I will have two videos playing and sounding. How can I stop the parent video if the popup is clicked?

Thanks a lot!

Are you using the 4.x or 5.x version.

You probably want to check out the API's for version 4 and 5:

The 5.x version can use actionscript, but it can use most of the jscript features also.

You probably want to call a javascript function just before you start playing the second player.

var player = document.getElementById('myplayer');  //myplayer is the parent player
player.sendEvent("STOP","true");  //not sure about that, check the docs
