Free License and m3u8


I am having JW Player Edition Free account. The Account Settings Page shows:

"Streams 0 500 You can still stream 500 video streams before 07-11-2015 ".

I tried to play an m3u8 stream, but it shows the error "No playable sources found". But as per the Account Settings Page, I should be able to play 500 video streams free of cost. Is this offer not available now ? Please clarify.

Thank you for contacting the JW Player support team. You need to have access to a Premium license or better in order to implement a living streaming source such as m3u8 manifests: Please send an email to: with your Free account details so that we can provide you with a trial key.
