What's New in JW Player 5.10

The JW Player 5.10 release is another step in establishing the JW Player as the leader in cross-platform video playback. While JW5.10 includes numerous enhancements & bug fixes, the three most exciting features are:
  • HTML5 is now the default playback mode on Android Devices
    After Adobe announced that they would stop developing their Flash Player for Android devices in November 2011, we refocused our Android support on HTML5 mode. As a result, HTML5 will be the default playback mode moving forward.
  • Cleaner User Interface on iOS Devices
    We've taken a number of steps to clean up the way the player looks and behaves, focusing on iOS playback. Enhancements include:
    • Player preview image now fades in when player loads
    • Video is not displayed until it is sized correctly and ready to play
    • The buffering icon appears on the iPad while video is loading
  • Saved Volume in HTML5 Mode
    In HTML5 mode, the player now saves the user's volume settings. When a user returns to any page on your site where the JW Player is embedded, the player will be configured with the same volume or mute state as their last visit.
    Note: Not supported on iPhone/iPad due to technical limitations of iOS.
