The ads have also been improved with a custom skip ad option, which means you can set a different skip time for each video.

With Google Analytics, you can track how many times your videos are viewed and downloaded. In addition, you can track how many times an ad video has been watched, how long an ad video has been played (before skipping), and even calculate how many times your ad video has been clicked.
Progress bar for live video thumbnails
Elite Video Player is the first and only video player that uses an intelligent system to create video thumbnails. You can set your videos to automatically generate video thumbnails and display them in real time as the user hovers over the progress bar. See example.

The Elite Video Player can also display vtt(jpg) video thumbnails, i.e. these thumbnails are pre-made single spritesheet jpg images. See example.
Elite video player has subtitles (titles) to support HTML5 self-hosted videos, Google Drive, Dropbox, HLS m3u8 Livestream or Amazon S3 videos.
The Elite player supports sticky mode, allowing your customers to see the video all the time on the page (while scrolling up and down the page). If the video is not in the user’s viewport, the sticky player will appear in the bottom corner, and if the video is in the user’s viewport, the sticky player will automatically hide.
Lightbox Mode, Responsive Mode, and Full Screen Mode.
The Elite video player can be displayed in lightbox mode. You can set any image to open the player in the lightbox. Multiple lightbox images are supported (multiple lightbox players on the same page). The lightbox options are: lightbox image, lightbox image width and height, lightbox click outside to close (optional), and lightbox autoplay (optional). This allows you to have multiple video players on the same page.
In responsive mode, the Elite video player adapts precisely to the content of the page or article.
In full-screen mode, the Elite video player will cover the entire page.
Deep Link Video
The Elite Player supports deep linking, which means that any video in the playlist can be accessed via a URL link. Also, users can share the current video.
For example, deep linking targets a video in the playlist called “Top Models”.
Protecting video content
On a self-hosted video, you can disable right-clicking on the video to prevent the “save video” action and hide the “src” attribute.
Also, to protect your video, the way anyone can now see your video content (even if it is “downloaded”) is by using HTTP live stream – HLS m3u8 format.
This will help to better understand: links, this way no one can view your video.
