Hey Community,


I am working on a draft website to display my video work. Is there a way to get rid of the play icon (while keeping the "progression bar" at the bottom?

I'd be super greatful for any hints.

The classes changed when Squarespace introduced new video features. You should be able to hide the play button on these videos by adding the following CSS to Design > Custom CSS:

.video-player .plyr--full-ui.plyr--video .plyr__control--overlaid {
  display: none !important;
