Who is Jeroen Wijering, the creator of the industry standard JW player? What is his relationship with Longtail Video Solutions? This trailer to the documentary video from PictureThis.tv gives you an insight into the history of the most famous video player on the web. Many people see this player daily at work without even knowing it.
For those who love to work with JW player, this is a must to watch:
On a personal level, what I find nice about this video is that I can finally put a face on the names of the people I have regular contact with. Our S3Media Stream™ plugin is based on JW player, so I follow up all developments closely. I presume I am a JW player fan, although I have nothing against FlowPlayer, which is the competition of JW player. It is just choice you have to make at some point. I like the fact that JW Player tends to be quicker to implement new features, especially regarding HTML5. But hey, I’m biased, so I should not start a comparison between the two 😉
That said, what do you think are the pros and cons of either FlowPlayer or JW Player?
