JW Player multimedia filter updated to a new version with fixed bugs

August 10th, 2015

JW Player multimedia filter which allows using JW Player for playing HTML5 and flash content, including RTMP/HLS steams and is currently being maintained by Ruslan Kabalin and Tony Butler has been updated to a new version 0.3 with fixed bugs and fixtures.

The filter is designed to achieve consistency of the player appearance in all major browsers and mobile platforms. The player supports flash fallback, providing more devices and formats coverage than either HTML5 or flash can handle alone. The filter also supports RTMP and HLS streams.JW-player
