I have Drupal 7 with the video module installed using ffmpeg. The video is playing fine. However, I noticed that users can only play from the beginning of the video. I would like to have users play from any specific time.

The embed video field module is only for embedding other videos so does not suit my needs.

May be you can try with javascript

document.getElementById('YOURVIDEOID').addEventListener('loadedmetadata', function() {
  this.currentTime = 50;
}, false);

In jquery

var vid = $("#video")[0];

function skipTime(time) {
    vid.currentTime = time;
  • How do I add listener to the clicked event and get the selected time from my video?
