Hi there,

My name is Alex and I am one of the Support Engineers at JW Player. I will be more than happy to assist you with your questions.

In JW Player 7, our player will only display poster images when it is not set to automatically start (via “autostart”). This is done to speed up the player’s ability to start playback, as it would have one less resource to request and display.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
