[Plugin: JW Player Plugin for WordPress] Playlist sidebar not showing (4 posts)

    I am using JW Player Plugin for WordPress 1.4.2 and I have added 3 remote YouTube urls into a newly created playlist. I have then, in my WordPress Page, inserted the player shortcode via the media_upload panel:

    [jwplayer config="VT" playlistid="7821740"]

    Page in question: http://www.homes-in-naperville.com/video-tours/
    When the page is displayed I see only the first video filling the player frame and can play that. There is no playlist on the right hand side of the JW player frame/div where I have set it to be in advanced settings along with my custom player "VT". The playlist width is set to 180.

    However, within the sourcecode of that page I see the playlist, the xml file it references and all *appear* to check out.

    I've disabled all plugins, changed to default theme and still no change and no playlist in the frame.

    Any comments / ideas / suggestions.

    Thank you

    There is currently a bug where saving the playlist location as part of the player configuration is not being respected.

    A workaround for this is to set the location in the shortcode itself. In your case

    [jwplayer config="VT" playlistid="7821740" playlist.location="right"]

    Ah. That didn't work but playlist.position did.

    I found that information here:


    Thank you

    Yeah, you are correct. That was a mistype on my part.
