Question about the JW Starter package

Hey Guys,

Had a quick pre-sales question about the JW Starter package and could not find info on the site about this so I thought I would post it here. I currently use my own hosted version of JW Player on my site: and I am currently using the free version and I had a few questions about upgrading.

When I upgrade will I be able to use JW player to serve ads through my self hosted JW Player, including videos that are hosted on Vimeo? Or will I need to upgrade my videos to JWPlayer and use a JWPlayer hosted js file?

I'm assuming the 50,000 plays is per month, correct? just wanted to check.

If you could get back to me on this I would really appreciate it. Thanks a ton.

You could play back Vimeo hosted videos, but you would need to pay for Vimeo Pro. Why not just have an all-in-one solution? You would need an Enterprise account in order to be able to monetize your content. To see a table of play limits, check out the license scope section of our terms of service for more info.

Also, you can use the self-hosted player or the cloud-hosted player – the choice is yours!

Let me know if that helps,
