JWplayer encode ampersand in video URL


I'm using CloudFront with signed URL passed as URL arguments.
If I past my URL which does contain ampersand (aka: &), JWPlayer encode this to "&" which cause CloudFront to not work as it doesn't recognize it.

It seems it's also a bug related to SWFObject (

Could you do something about it?

The fix for now is to add ".replace(/\&/g,'&')" to the URL but it's obviously not very clean.

Do you happen to have a link to where you’re setting this up? We’d like to confirm the player version/URL being used for testing on our side.

We are using JWPlayer 6.11

I'm sorry but I can't show it to you.

Hi Guillaume,

Again, we really need some sort of public-facing link to assist further. Please let me know if it’s possible to provide this.
