Is it possible to show the same bottom tablet player in landscape and portrait view?

Hi, is it possible to show the same bottom tablet player in landscape view as well as in portrait view, so the user can navigate in the progressbar the same way as in portrait view?

Hi Dorte, 

When your tablet or smartphone is in landscape mode, the responsive player moves to the right side of the screen. As the slide plays, you’ll see a circular indicator travelling around the play/pause button. You can’t scrub back and forth along the seekbar in landscape mode, but the circular indicator lets you see how much time has elapsed and how much remains.

To make the seekbar interactive, just turn your tablet or smartphone to portrait orientation. The responsive player will move to the bottom of the screen and reveal a horizontal seekbar that you can drag back and forth.

That's by design for the responsive player, so there isn't an option to change it's location.

Hi Ashley and Alyssa,

Thanks for answering :-) My issue is exactly the possibility to make the seekbar interactive in landscape as well as show the text Forward/Next buttons and not arrows in landscape and text buttons in portrait. We want our users to see our courses in landscape to use the space, so we block the portrait view as Storyline is not responsive in portrait - only the player. So our wish is the same player in landscape as in portrait - or the possibility to choose location.

Do you pass my feedback along to your team as a feature request?
