Can I download a video from JWPlayer?

Can I download a video from JWPlayer? I have content on the player and our hard drive crashed... is there a way to download content we've added to JW PLayer?

Absolutely. There are a few different ways to do this:

1) You can download individual videos directly from your JW Platform dashboard. Just navigate to the Videos > click on a video title > Video properties > Transcodes and then click on the blue globe Publish icon to get the direct video URL.
2) You can also create a playlist and then get the direct URL directly from the RSS feed.
3) If you want the original uploaded version (before we transcoded it) you can get this URL via the JW Platform API’s /videos/conversions/list endpoint. Please see more documentation for this at
