You can post the videos directly from your account with jwplayer.com, after you authorize the plugin. It helps with securing your videos, by signing the URLS and setting expiration time for both the video urls and the embedded player. This is very important to me as I do not want people stealing my videos and hot linking from other sites eating my streaming limits and views. Their CDN is great and the player is responsive. There is also very good, detailed video analytics and statistic on their website. So far I can not find anything to complain. I can say that this is the best HLS streaming solution available on the market at this momment and I have researched many other options...

JWPlayer in itself is great, really great. However, the WP integration is merely okay. The real issues for me are Audio integration and Playlists. Lacking: Playlist layout options with WP, Imaging while playing the audio, and Titles running on the playbar while running. The playlist option now available is odd without a drop down or sidebar playlist offering within WP, just an overlay that can be confusing to a new or novice user. It's a great option if have external Feeds overall but with few design options as you expect in a WP platform. The JW Player API script is great outside of WP.

Quite straightforward plugin for JW Player and JW Platform. Did not encounter the "empty admin area lists" issue others saw. Maybe a plugin - plugin conflict?

I built out an entire library of videos, cloud hosted and upgraded to JW Player 7. I go to install this plugin and it makes all my pages disappear from the WP Admin area. It doesn't delete the pages, but it will certainly freak you out for a second. Alas you can't edit or make any changes to your existing website until you disable the plugin. So now I have a bunch of JW Player 7 videos and no way to put them online.
