Use Cases and Deployment Scope

JW Player is our video player across our network of sites. JW Player is only being used as a platform to serve our editorial video content as well as some pre-roll. The problem it addressed was simple... we needed a video player for the website and they were able to provide those services with great tech, and competitive pricing.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

All of our video content is housed on JW Player. It is used by over 30 of our newspaper newsrooms and tv stations. We spent a lot of time looking for an affordable, reliable video hosting system and JW stood out in a crowded field.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our firm, Motion Media Solutions is a video production company producing business videos for online use by business professionals, corporations and nonprofit organizations. We deliver a majority of our client videos via a video website we host at VideoproFile.net. In doing so, we not only provide the JW Player embed code our clients may use to put the video on their own websites, but we optimize video pages to help establish video SEO for them, linking the page to their social media profiles online, as well as to syndicated locations of their video on sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Dailymotion, SlideShare and others.
