Great player, make sure you look around if you're not a company that's OK spending a lot of money on the platform if you choose to use JW platform.

I think it does a nice job overall of dealing with video. There is some functionality I wish would be better, as stated in my pros and cons.

JWPlayer is one of the best video streaming solution. You can upload a video and obtain it converted in many format in minutes. The player is very simple to use, well supported on most browser in the market. Speed of network is good and the streaming occurs without interruption even with slow connections. As a plus the Javascript API of the player is very well documented and you can do a lot of customization and automation. The price, in my opinion, is too high. I'm lucky that I've subscribed when it was costing a half, but the actual pricing model prevents its use in small and medium-sized projects.

I used JWPlayer for many years in our custom applications. From back in the Flash days and well into the HTML 5 craze, this player served us well. It's extremely robust and the API is better than any other player I've used which makes it a great choice for customization.

It is one of the fiercest competition to youtube integration on other websites out there and that's a fact I appreciate.

JW Player does not work correctly for the international audience

Review Source: Capterra

In 2016 we signed with JW Player for medical education videos. Our clients were international. JW Player will not load for the majority of them. Just a buffering sign will stay on the screen. Students will purchase the product, not able to watch they will ask for a refund. We had a small team, we will work the whole day long with the customers and JW Player's support to individually figure out the issues. Finally a few months into the service, we canceled the service. I had asked their salesperson before signing the contract if we could cancel if the service did not work. He had said that he doesn't think that JW Player will come after me if I canceled. On top of this, we were given API bills for the API integrations that never happened. After incurring thousands of dollars of customer refunds and unhappy customers we decided to move on from JW Player. We moved to another company and never had the player issues. Three years later, JW Player has surfaced again. Threatening to report us to credit and asking for the $2800 for which we never received any service neither did we receive integration. Even their support team members told us that they understood that our international customers are having a bad time and it makes sense for us to move on. Not only we had terrible service, we had brand damage, unhappy customers, loss of the payments we made to JW Player and now they want more money for the remaining months in the year.

JW Player is the best in its class, but is it good enough?

JW is the #1 solution for most companies who make it a priority to host videos on their own servers. Users can track the video's analytics, similar to the YouTube analytics page, as well as customize the video players.

This promotion was misleading. It's 50 videos* or 25GB of files, whichever comes first. ALSO, JW uses your tiny storage to store your video and other data JW uses in order to function. So if you have 2 videos that are 2GB each, you'll be using up almost 8GB of your storage. Worst part is I've reached out for support twice and haven't heard back. Wishing I had gone with Vimeo or IBM or anyone but JWPlayer.
