The release of JW Player for WordPress 1.4.0, has Introduced new options for the shortcode [jwp-video].
This page wants to be the reference for this, it will be kept updated with the future changes that will come.
A page or post can have more than one video and this option lets insert a specific video into the content.
For the first video, this option can be omitted, then adding [jwp-video] is enough.
The example below will add the video number three.
Post/ Page ID
This option let you publish a video from a different post or page.
Down here, you can see how to add the video 2 from the post/ page 243.
[jwp-video n="2" p="243"]
width=” ” height=” “
Even if the measures of the player are set in general in the plugin options page, is possible to assign specific measures for each video player using these shortcode options.
[jwp-video width="640" height="360"]
With this option is possible to change the aspect ratio of the single video player, like for the vertical video in the example below.
This option activates the automatic playback on page load for a playlist.
It mutes the playlist videos during playback.
With this option is possible to loop the content after the playlist completes.

I’m a bit confused with available documentation and explanations.
– Where does the user upload the video? What does the shortcode syntax look like with that uploaded video?
– What does the shortcode syntax look like with an external video (YouTube, Vimeo)?
– How should we troubleshoot when the player doesn’t appear?
Thanks in advance.6 April 2017 at 10:25 #2240
Did you upload the player on your site? If not, please have a look here:
In the plugin option page you can active the plugin functionalities for posts, pages and all the others post types.
How to publish a video? This video can be useful:
You can upload videos by the WordPress media system or directly in ftp but remember, you have always to use di direct link to the media source, the only exception is YouTube.
Hope this helps 😉6 April 2017 at 16:30 #2241

The plug-in does not play or even display .m3u8 files but the jw player tester does. Can this plug-in handle .m3u8 formats? if so, how28 August 2017 at 13:06 #2715
Hi Reginald, sorry for the late 🙁
JWPlayer requires a premium license for .m3u8 format, that’s the reason.
