Supported video players per feature
Listed below are all the 3rd party video players supported by Spott.

Don’t worry, we can integrate with almost every video player on the market.
To integrate your video player, it must meet these two requirements:
- It must be possible to hook into the following player events: play, pause, time updates and fullscreen.
- The video player must have good API documentation. We need to have a clear understanding of how the video player works in order to work with it.
Not sure if your player meets the requirement? No problem, please contact our support team!
Your player does meet the requirements? Great, please contact our support team as well to submit it.
Player features explained
Tracked tags allow you to attach a tagged asset to stick to a visual element via AI-technology. This will highly increase product visibility. The video will subtly pause when hovering over an element, allowing the consumer to engage.
Tracked tags are supported in all video players except Anvato.
Example from 'The Devil Wears Prada' using the Spott player demonstrating tracked tags.
Cards are displayed on the top left corner of the video. This is a subtle yet effective visualization. It is especially fit for assets that are not always visible throughout the video.
Example from 'Collishop' using the Spott player demonstrating cards.
Playlists allow you to play one video after another one is done. Spott fully supports all videos in the playlist to be made interactive. This feature is only available in JW Player.
A video hosting platform allows you to upload, store and playback video content on the internet. You can use Spott to host the video for you or use a 3rd party platform. If you don’t want to be dependent on another hosting platform, you can host it yourself by providing a URL to the location. JW Player is currently the only player that supports this.
Auto overlay (CMS integration)
Auto overlay allows you to control which videos have an interactive layer, without having to replace any embed codes.
This may come in handy in case you want to turn an interactive layer on or off when it’s already embedded in your web page.
This is available for Flowplayer, Blue Billywig, Vimeo and Digiteka.
Both Anvato and JW Player allow ads to be played before and during your video. Spott supports these ads by pausing the interactive layer while the ad is playing.
When using the Anvato video player, the ad itself can be made interactive through Spott as well.
- Another performance advantage arises when dealing with multiple Spott videos on one page, our script needs to be called just once which reduces traffic and browser load.
