JW Player for Flash & HTML5 Video
Multiple HTML5 Video Sources (8 posts)

    I have searched to find the correct way to give multiple video sources, without much success. I have MP4, WebM and OGV files and would want to get the shortcode I could use in my posts.

    Being a WordPress plugin I can't use levels as they use square brackets & can't be read properly by WordPress

    We only support one source currently for the html5_file.

    Thanks for update. I have gone through a lot of topics here & seems like JW Player 6 update for WordPress is long due. Hoping it will be out soon and will take care of this issue as well.

    [jwplayer config="myplayer" file="http://www.example.com/videos02/000010/amazing-vid.mp4" file="http://www.example.com/videos02/000010/amazing-vid.webm" image="http://www.example.com/videos02/000010/amazing-vid-splash.jpg"]

    Hopefully adding multiple formats would be as easy as just adding a new file.

    The plugin for WP6 only supports one file source at this moment.

    Is there any plans to allow this in the future as i was also hoping to be able to add mp4 and webm to make sure the majority of people can watch the videos

    We will add this as an advance option (meaning in shortcode only) in plugin version 2.1.x.

    That said, it is not necessary to add webm to make it more compatible. The JW player falls back to flash for browsers that do not support mp4 playback (Most notably firefox). We advice a flash primary setting, to ensure the best playback experience in all browsers a HTML5 fallback will manage non-flash browsers.
