Quick Start

Copy the jwplayer folder that contains this README to the www root of your website. Next, include the jwplayer.js script in the <head> of your HTML page.

If you have purchased the Pro, Premium or Ads edition of JW Player, its features can be activated by inserting your server-less JW Player license key in the second line:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/jwplayer/jwplayer.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">jwplayer.key="ABCDEFGHIJKLMOPQ";</script>

Note: A key is not required to use the Free edition, but will still be available from your JW Player Account. Including your key will enable the free JW Player Analytics for your account.

Embed Code

When the script and key are set, scroll down to the <body> of your HTML page and insert the JW Player embed code at the place you want your video to appear:

<div id="myElement">Loading the player...</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
        file: "/uploads/myVideo.mp4",
        image: "/uploads/myPoster.jpg"

See Embedding JW Player for a more elaborate description of options and some example embeds.

Note two very common issues prevent smooth video playback in Internet Explorer 9/10. First, you need to set <!DOCTYPE html> to prevent triggering IE's compatibility mode. Second, your videos must be served with the video/mp4 mimetype. Not doing so will cause IE not to play them. See our troubleshooting guide for more common issues.

Premium Skins

If you have purchased the Premium or Ads edition of the player, your player includes a set of Premium skins. These skins can be downloaded from your JW Player Account, but you can also load them off our CDN by simply inserting the skin name:

    skin: "bekle"

See Using JW Player Skins for more info.
