TypeError: jwplayer(...).getState is not a function(…)

jwplayer object does not appear to return a valid state when the jwplayer display is hidden.
When shown again, it returns 'TypeError: jwplayer(...).getState is not a function(…)' instead of the current state of the object, (which would be 'paused').

Hi there,

That library that you linked to the repository for is not something that is developed by JW Player. It looks like you’ve already opened an Issue on the repo so hopefully the developer can respond to you there and resolve your issue.

Thank you.
