Video gallery plugin doesnt work after installing JW Player 6 (4 posts)

    I am new to WordPress, so i installed instantwp to play around with it. Then i installed a plugin called Cool Video Gallery and was able to create a playlist.

    After i installed the latest JW Player plugin, the Cool Video Plugin stopped working. For Youtube videos, the old JW Player opens but nothing happens when i click play. For uploaded videos, i get the error "No playable sources found".

    jwplayer.js exists inside the Cool Video Gallery plugin, but i cant find it in the JW Player plugin. I dont know much about js but i thought if i could replace the jwplayer.js that was referencing an older version with the file with the newer version in JW Player but it doesnt exist.

    Does anyone have any idea how to get this plugin to work with the new JW Plugin?

    What is happening here is probably a clash between these two plugins. The Cool Video Gallery plugin probably includes an older version of our player, which also embeds using a file called jwplayer.js, and it is not possible to run both the old and new versions of jwplayer.js at the same time on the same page, so it would not be possible to run these two plugins together, I'm afraid.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I come from a c/c++ background so i am a bit confused. What is JW Player? Is it a flash video app? What is jwplayer.js, is that the complete implementation of the player?

    JW Player is a Flash/HTML5 video player, for the web.
