License for commercial use


I am building a website with educational videos / courses. Some of the courses are paid, this means, people have to pay to see the videos. I am planning to use self-hosted JW Player 7 to stream the videos over RTMP from my own servers.

I only need the JW Player, I am not interested to use any of your other services (cloud, storage, streaming, analytics, ... ).

Do I need to buy a License? What kind of product I should use? Will it work forever or I need to pay and get License key every year?

Thank you.

You will need to purchase a Premium license at least that needs to be renewed annually. You can find more information here: and review our Terms of Service here: Please let us know if we can be of further assistance..
