Kommentare: I think it does exactly what it is setup to do. Manage and host video.

Vorteile: It does what it's suppose to do, manage video and audio. They have made improvements on the analytics and that has been helpful.

Nachteile: I would like to see "podcast" functionality to the site. Wherein someone can download the podcast if they wanted to. Manage podcasting better. Video, they are desperate for an EASY way to add clickable functionality to the videos we upload. Right now it is cumbersome and awkward. It does not work very well. More "YouTube-like" when it comes to adding a clickable link to me, is a key component missing

Kommentare: I am an undergraduate Engineering student and I used to watch movies, music videos and also listen to the music usually. So this JW player is the software I had chosen for that because it has many options to ease my settings as I wish and also it very eye favorable.

Vorteile: I am a music and film lover. So I used to watch movies all the time and also usually I used to listen to music and I am huge interested on watching music videos. So this JW Player helps me to watch movies, Music videos online as well as downloaded ones. It is very easy to handle and also the interface is very attractive and very eye favorable.

Nachteile: I am using this JW player for more than 2 years till now but I did not get any bad impression on this.

Player is awesome, platform can be pricing/limited

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile: They've come a long way, staying up-to-date with best practices, and we haven't had a problem with our videos for years now. Very stable and highly recommended.

Nachteile: They're player is great and would use it any day, their platform is fairly limited in storage and plays etc without paying high enterprise rates that every year we have to negotiate to keep it where we are, the prices seem to skyrocket.

Very good service, but price too high

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile: Very intuitive interface
Javascript API well documented
Customization of web player
Network speed during video streaming

Nachteile: Space used is the sum of original video and all the versions (on different format/resolutions)
Price is very high, specially for small project
Limit on both bandwidth and number of plays

This was my video player of choice until recently

Vorteile: 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.

Nachteile: After buying a license several years ago, I find an email last month in my spam folder from Longtail informing me they would start charging me monthly. For what? They were not hosting my media files and I wasn't even using their CDN. I had a few other less than pleasant experiences with their support team so I finally decided to drop JWPlayer.

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

Nachteile: I do dislike that you're being limited quite a lot with it.
Also the fact that your link cannot be downloaded isn't so great.

Very easy to implement and customize

Kommentare: It's our video player of choice on one of our main websites, and it has proved to be flexible enough to do anything we need it to.

Vorteile: This may have been the easiest implementation of a tool I've ever experienced. Beyond that, it's so easy to use, you barely have to think about it after a while.

Nachteile: I honestly can't think of anything I don't like. We really haven't run into any problems at all.

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile: Great support. (They need it though, considering the bad product.)

Nachteile: They will get you in a year long contract. Product will not work for the international customers. You will have to refund, support, and have your support team be consumed with JW Player issues all the time. However, JW Player will continue to bill you with their less than ethical pricing and billing behavior.

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

Vorteile: 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.

Nachteile: However, there are some negatives. The website is sometimes hard to navigate, given the wealth of features. Also, you have to take into account the costs that come with having a feature-rich account. You have to wonder, is hosting your own videos with custom video players really worth the cost of using JW Player?

Kommentare: generally it reduces the damage of your content like videos being taken without your permission

Vorteile: it is a great software especially if you want to protect you content online like videos from unauthorized downloads it makes it more difficult for people to take content on your blog without your permission

Nachteile: however it does not completely secure your content there can still be unauthorized downloads if people use some other tools on your site

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile: The price seemed to be the only thing JWPlayer had going for it. For 60/year I could host 50 videos*.

Nachteile: Storage caps at 50 videos or 25GB.
A 2 GB video takes up almost 4GB of storage for some reason.
Zero customer support.
