Wordpress embedding WITHOUT a JWPlayer Account

I run a school website (self-hosted Wordpress) and want to embed a Video that is hosted by JWPlayer into our website
NOTE: we did not produce this video, the local TV station did -- they have the JWPlayer account, not us.

JWPlayer is not White-listed by Wordpress, and iFrame embeds with https are problematic (i.e., not working!)

So, what is the best way to embed this JWPlayer Video into our self-hosted Wordpress website?

Here is the Video:

thank you!

JW Player should work in Wordpress without issue.

You could ask the account holder to send you an iframe or Javascript embed code (preferred) from their dashboard for that video. To place the player directly in your site you could use the setup code directly in a <script> tag in your page:

<div id='sd-main-player' width='100%'></div>
        debug : false,
        file : 'file',
        image : 'yourimg',
        zone : '/',
        assetId : ''

You would need to include the link to their cloud-hosted (recommended) JW Player js library in the header of your site. The link you included with your support post could possibly work, but you would need to nest it within and <iframe> tag.
