## Cloud-hosted by JWP with API calls

  1. Make a call to `api.jwplatform.com` to list the existing players in your account (`GET /players/list`) or create a new player (`POST /v1/players/create`) . If this is your first time creating (`POST`) an item with the Management API, read our documentation on <a href="/platform/reference/authentication" target="_blank">authentication</a> and <a href="/platform/reference/building-a-request" target="_blank">call syntax</a>.

  1. Locate the `key` in the response, for example: `{key: "aBCdE12G"}`.

  2. Construct the cloud-hosted player library URL with the `key`: `https://cdn.jwplayer.com/libraries/{key}.js`.

  3. Within the `<head>` of your page, copy and paste the URL to the player library.

The use of a self-hosted JWP library requires an Enterprise license. Please [contact our team](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) if you would like to upgrade your account.

  1. From the [Players](πŸ”—ο»Ώ) page in the **Self-Hosted Web Player** section select a release version to download from the **Release Channel** dropdown menu.

    After selecting a release channel version the following text updates occur:

    • The **Released** date below the **Release Channel** dropdown menu displays the release date of the selected channel.

    • Information and notes specific to the selected release will appear beneath the **Release Channel** dropdown menu.

    • The version number in the **Download** button at the bottom of the section will update to reflect the selected release version number (**v8.xx.x**).

<br />

  1. Copy the **LICENSE KEY** for the JWP library.

  2. Click the **Download v8.xx.xx** button.

  3. Rename and upload the unzipped library folder to your server. When renaming the folder, remove the periods from the folder name.
