Where is the License Key for the HTML5 JWPlayer API?

Video Player - HTML5 All Device

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.”

This license key is useful for embedding the player.

Below is an example of what you will see in your JWPlayer account:

Unfortunately, new Free license customers with accounts created before mid-September 2017 will not have access to self-hosted player files and license keys as per JWPlayer’s FAQ page.

    Hello,
    what if I want to use JW7, as a Free license customers, can I just download it from github and use it or I still need licence key.. also I see that I can download JW8 from github, can I use it without need to subscribe to jwplayer or use of an Enterprise customer account.

      Hi Adnane, I hope you are great. So what you would have to do is to ask directly to JW support. Also, note that if you do not use our player, you won’t have support for the player integration, and you won’t have access to the following features: analytics, paywall, security video (referrer and geoblock), splash screen. Let me know if you have any further questions, and I would be happy to assist you. Have a great day. Best
