change player in browser?

I have a vendor that uses embedded videos for training on their website. They are using a JW Player 6.4.3359. Every video I try to watch on that site has horrible buffering problems. I have sought out other websites using JW Player and have no issues. The only difference I've seen is that the other sites are using a newer version of JW Player, 7.12.1. I have to assume that the newer version of JW Player is the key. so, is there any way that I can change the JW Player version on MY END?

Only the web developers that have direct access to the web site code on the page can make changes to their website’s player embed.

I would recommend contacting that website directly with your feedback including the following details:
• a link to the page on their site
• any error messages or behavior you saw
• the web browser and operating system of your computer or device

Hope this helps

Under further research I am leaning towards an issue between JW Player 6.4.3359 and Windows 10. I used a machine with Windows 7 installed with the same exact browser/settings and it worked fine. I can't believe I am the only person experiencing this problem.

the affected situation involves:

Windows 10 64-bit
Chrome Version 64.0.3282.186 (Official Build) (64-bit)
JW Player 6.4.335

Somewhere between those three there is a glitch.

It is not the internet connection. I used the same internet connection on the Windows 7 machine that I have used on multiple windows 10 machines

Unfortunately there is nothing we can do on our end; only the web developers that have access to the code on the page can make changes to their website’s player embed.
