Google chrome KeyboardEvent.keyIdentifier is deprecated in September 2016

I found this message then I played youtube video in JW Player:
'KeyboardEvent.keyIdentifier' is deprecated and will be removed in M53, around September 2016. See for more details.

Will be playing youtube videos in JW Player still available after Google excludes KeyboardEvent.keyIdentifier from Chrome browser?

Hi there,

I am not receiving that error when viewing the YouTube video embedded on this support article. Can you please give me the URL to the page that has the player which gave you that error?

Thank you.

Hmm... I could not reproduce this error today. I think it's disappeared. Thank you for the reply!
