Google Drive?

Is it possible with JWPlayer 6 to play Google drive videos? I host my websites intro on Google drive instead of youtube so its semi-private...
Help anyone..?

You will need to get the direct url by using the following steps:

<li>Of course, you need to make the video file Public for the web.</li>
<li>Get the file id from the share lnk, ex: *[0B18GSS-hxxfZcGtWQzlIRTctX28]* /edit?usp=sharing</li>
<li>go to and go to the "try it" section towards the bottom and paste the file id in the box and click execute</li>
<li>use the link in webContentLink from the reposnse window and paste it in JWplayer for your file setting. You could use thumbnailLink for your image if you want. </li>
<p>Please encourage LongTailVideo to support the new Google Drive service (actually almost a year already, but they're always improving the video part). I feel JW Player and Google Drive's video streaming service is a winning combo!</p>
