    Alter the context menu

    You can alter the menu that appears on right-click, called the context menu. To do this you must alter the configuration of your player. You can do this in two ways:

    • Using Studio's JSON Editor from the PLAYERS module.
    • A tool to perform the configuration change is curl.

    The two changes you can make, and how to affect them, are shown here.

    If you wish to prevent the player information context menu from appearing at all, you can do one of the following:

      --user $EMAIL \

      }' \
