I’m excited to announce that OIT purchased a site license yesterday for JWPlayer Pro. This license covers anyone embedding a video using JWPlayer on *.duke.edu domains (i.e., oit.duke.edu, library.duke.edu, lemur.duke.edu, etc.). For many years, JW Player has been the player we’ve recommended for use for live and on-demand streaming via the OIT Wowza Media (Flash) server. We’ve mostly used the free version of the player, but some of you may have noticed that the logo for the free version has gotten larger and a little more obtrusive recently. The Pro version of the player removes the watermark by default but makes it possible for you to embed a watermark of your own if you so choose.
More information about JWPlayer Pro can be found here:
To activate the Pro version of the player and remove the watermark, all that is needed is a line of code in the web page embedding your video. That code together with full instructions for using JW Player can be found here: https://duke.service-now.com/nav_to.do?uri=kb_view.do?sysparm_article=KB0014387

If you have questions about using JW Player at Duke or any other aspects of OIT’s Wowza Media Server, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
