    The JW Player plugins lets you use external links to play videos.

    When you click the upload icon on the edit post or page screen, click the External Media tab at the top of the upload screen.

    You put the links to an external video in that field. Then at the bottom of the media panel select the JW Player from the drop-down and click the blue Insert JW Player button.

    That places the shortcode for that player and video in the page or post.

    Click Preview and it should play the video.
