    Following the launch of JW8 in October 2017, self-hosting the HTML5 player is now only available to Enterprise customers. If you are an Enterprise customer, you should be able to access your license key in your JW Player account.

    New Free license customers with accounts created before mid-September 2017 will not have access to self-hosted player files and license keys.

    You will find the license key in the left-hand navigation menu, under the Players section when you click on “Tools.”
