    when a customer pays to watch my video, I want to give them an instant access to the video playing/streaming on my website (powered by WordPress). How can I integrate Cloudfront content delivery and JW player to achieve this in my website?

    Do you have a sample stream from Cloudfront?

    No, I do not have a sample stream from Cloudfront. I am evaluating Cloudfront and JW player at this time and trying to figure out how to make it work in my website. I was reading this article below - and I want to try it out.

    On-Demand Video Streaming Using CloudFront and JW Player:

    But, I need help locating JW player files, and integrating all this in my website (powered by wordpress). I am new to JW player, and Cloudfront, and I want to ask for your help and benefit from your guidance/experience.

    Thanks in advance for your guidance and help!

    Basically, if you use our WP plugin, you just need to set up a shortcode like this:

    [jwplayer file="rtmp://cloudfronturl/stream.mp4"]

    For example.

    How well does this work?

    It's important for me that my videos loads/plays smoothly and fast for my paid customers. How well would Cloudfront/JW player work for me?

    I like to see some examples. Do you know of any sites that use Cloudfront/JW-player to stream/play videos on wordpress powered website?

    We have some general information about RTMP streaming here, which CF uses - http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/28854/using-rtmp-streaming

    Here is a demo of an RTMP stream - http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/29395/rtmp-single-stream
