Certain JW Player features may require a specific license. Please contact our team if your license does not support the features or configuration options you need.


JW Player contains a number of configurable options. Some options, like width or mute, are top level, while other more advanced options may be nested, such as the ones used for skin customizations and advertising.

Here is an example setup that contains both setup options and specific advertising options:

jwplayer("myElement").setup({
  "playlist": "https://cdn.jwplayer.com/v2/media/hWF9vG66",
  "height": 360,
  "width": 640,
  "autostart": "viewable",
  "advertising": {
    "client": "vast",
    "tag": "http://adserver.com/vastTag.xml"
  }
});

The following pages contain all configuration options that JW Player supports.
