Accoring to the page: and
We can sign up a Free account for hosting under 10 videos.
If we host the video on our own server, when using JW Player is free to use for commercial?

If you host your videos on your own server then the Videos, Hosting and Streaming limits would not apply to your account. The only limit that would apply is the 5,000 content plays per month.

A play is counted when the first frame of a video loads on our player, this counts against your limit despite where the content is hosted. We review Plays per account individually to figure out if this is a one time overage or if there’s a pattern of exceeding the limits, in which our Sales team will reach out about upgrading to prevent a TOS violation.

Hope this helps,
