No control buttons being displayed in the media player.

The controls were there before I added mejs but now there are no controls.I can just see the skin and the video plays when I click on the area where the play button is supposed to be but it isn't visible. Any idea why this is happening?

Could you include the code?

Did you add/remove the controls attribute inside the video tag? It should look similar to this:

<video width="320" height="240" controls>
  <source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4">
  <source src="movie.ogg" type="video/ogg">

You didn't add the 'controls' attribute to the opening video tag.
