Hi there,

Thanks for providing a demo page.Your first player is a player with a free license key that is referencing three different self-hosted MP4s. Depending on the user’s connection speed a progressive MP4 download can pause if the user connection speed can’t download the file fast enough. Your second player is a player with a Premium license key that is referencing an HLS stream hosted on our platform. In order to take advantage of adaptive streaming, you will need to self-host your player using your premium license key found in your JW Dashboard and reference an HLS stream that you create yourself and host on S3.

Alternatively, it may be easier for you to simply host your content with us.
