How can I programmatically start my video at a specific place the first time it is played?


To have a different start time when a video loads in a Kendo UI MediaPlayer:

  1. Use the seek method the first time the play event is fired.
  2. Utilize the one method of the Kendo UI observable to attach a handler for one-time execution.
    <div id="mediaplayer" style="height:360px"></div>

    <script type="text/javascript">
          autoPlay: true,
          navigatable: true,
          media: {
            title: "ProgressNEXT 2018 Highlights",
            source: ""

        var mediaPlayer = $("#mediaplayer").data("kendoMediaPlayer");"play", function(){
