I think they do a great job of converting a video into various formats (file/size) that will accommodate a variety of devices. From computer to phone to tablet, it streams really nice with little or no latency. I would really, really like to see an easy way to add clickable text and links to the video (in a similar fashion to how YouTube does it).

JW Player is a web based video player. It is best-in-class for that kind of application. If you need to host video content and need a video player on your website - this is definitely one company to investigate. For pretty much anything that is not video related, you should not use them.

JW Player has flexible plans that won't cost you a lot of money. If you are a startup, JW offers a variety of plans that will suit your specific needs and grow with you as your company grows. You do not need to be a video expert to understand how to upload a video, which allows nearly anyone in the office to do it.

It's very well suited for any firm desiring to maintain a high-quality, fully functional online video player that is automatically mobile compliant and contains built-in sharing functionality for email, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest among others.

As previously mentioned, the JW Platform playlist RSS feed NOT being compatible with iTunes video podcasting submission parameters is a huge disappointment as that was originally one of the reasons we chose to use the platform.
