JW LIVE AVAILABLE TO ALL ENTERPRISE PLATFORM CUSTOMERS AT NO EXTRA CHARGE

JW Live makes it easy to live stream. Now it’s even easier than before because JW Live is currently available to all Enterprise customers at no additional charge. We have simplified the pricing enabling publishers to experiment with live-streaming without headaches of complex, multi-tiered billing. You only pay for the bytes you stream and you’re billed at the same VOD rate.  We believe that removing the cost of JW Live is the right move for our customers and is in line with JW Player’s friendly approach towards helping customers with their video needs; simple to understand and easy to use. Going live is much more accessible!

Greycroft Co-Founder Ian Sigalow’s Insight into the Software Industry

Thanks to our friend and investor Ian Sigalow, Co-Founder and Partner of Greycroft, for the excellent mention of JW Player in his recent blog post, titled, “The Great Deflation”. He shares the story of JW Player's origins and growth, and discusses how its unique data set will help to assure the company's future. Below is an excerpt from the piece, which I encourage you read in its entirety, as Ian offers a valuable perspective on the current landscape of the software industry:

How Chrome Power Saving will Affect JW Player

The developer teams from Chrome and Firefox1 have announced core changes to how they will handle Flash applications. Despite being an HTML5-first video player, these changes can affect video playback through JW Player. The announcements indicate that the browser itself will decide whether or not a Flash application is core to the viewer's experience. If the Flash object is small and outside of view, the browser will throttle or add an overlay on top of the Flash application, stopping it from fully rendering2. This functionality is aimed to help reduce power consumption and increase battery life. Applications that use HTML5 and native <video> tags will not be affected. Chrome Power Saving

Introducing JW Player 7

I would like to introduce JW Player 7 -- our fastest, smartest, and most customizable player yet. JW7 was reengineered from the core API to the visual interface to provide the best online video experience no matter what device, browser, and rendering mode is used to play your content. We have added MPEG-DASH support which will help transition away from Flash based streaming protocols. The player is also completely customizable now with CSS. Alongside JW7’s launch is also a brand new dashboard to make publishing and configuring JW Player even easier.
