free vs paid account for self hosted

Hi there,

I have previously used JW Player and loved it (JW7). I just signed up again to use it for a new project and I noticed that the pricing options changed. Before there was the ability to pay something like ($150) for the player and a year of updates. Now I don't see any such option, just the subscription options.

Did you remove the other pricing plans?

Can you explain the differences in the plans for a self-hosted player with self-hosted videos? We do not want to use any third-party "cloud services".

What limitations are on the Fee Basic plan that I currently have?

Okay I now see from your other answers that JWPlayer does not allow self-hosting for Free Accounts.

I also notice that you aren't answering questions about Free accounts. But I will try anyways.

What are the limitations of the Free account when using the cloud hosted player?
