Looks like someone has already responded to your post. Did that answer your
question? In their suggestion, they indicated that you could actually
created the jplayer instance within the Edge composition, and therefore
have more direct access to its events. If that will not work for you, it
may help to know how your page is laid out. Where is the Edge file in

the player need to be outside of Edge for some reason?
Let me know if you still need help. Thanks!
