YouTube Embedding and Firefox
We are currently using the JW Player Version 6.12. Premium, as bad as we would like upgrading to version 7 of the player, at the present time is not an option, as JW 7 does not support IE 7 and 8 ( we have large number of users on this format, too large to ignore at this point).
We are having problems with Firefox and Youtube (single video play) embedding. Sometimes it will play, sometimes not, or play really sluggish.
We are using “flash” as our primary in the code. If we switch this to “html5” in the code it will work with Firefox, BUT we will render useless the player in almost half of our traffic that uses earlier versions of internet explorer, so this is not an option either.
One frequent user of this support board (James Herrieven) suggested the following code, which it worked:
The problem is that now it will load things like “Playlist” from the channel you are embedding, from "Next Video" "Overlay" comments and so on. Where before it would filter all that. Basically it looses the point of having a JW player as it's now a Youtube player.
Here’s a sample link of our issue:
Is there a patch, a work around or a code trick that can be use for JW Player Version 6.12 to fix this Youtube embedding problem?
Any thoughts or suggestions will be incredibly appreciated .
