I’m using arve pro and play button only display when i add thumbnail
How to display play button without adding thumbnail to the video ?
If you do not add a thumbnail that native players and their UI will be used. In Firefox there is a centered play icon, in Chrome there is just a small play icon. I am not displaying a overlay-ed play icon because it would look bad in Firefox to have two layered on top of each other. Other browsers also have their own look to the HTML5 players that would not work well with it. And if you do not set a thumbnail the thumbnail you see will be generated from that video files first frame so that is why the native players are displayed in that case.
If you want the ARVE set play icon, the hover effect and minimalist thumbnail without controls you need to set a thumbnail.
