abouttext flashvar not working

Hello, I am using the following code to set the abouttext flashvar in the hosted JWPlayer:

require_once "jw_api.php";
$api = new BotrAPI('api_key','api_secret');
$props = array(
"player_key" => "player_key",
"custom.abouttext" => "test",

$response = $api->call("/players/update", $props);

The response comes back "ok", but the abouttext remains "About JW Player..."

What I am I doing wrong? Thanks for your assistance.

It is not possible to set the abouttext for JW Player 6 in JW Platform.
