  • Hello everyone...
    2 days ago I was checking videos normally but somehow yesterday JW Player appeared on all of my browsers (FF/IE/and later Chrome).
    since its appearance all the videos that require JW Player are not working (when I press play NOTHING happens) !!!!
    I just want my browsers to get back to normal... I tried removing FireFox and then installing again but it didn't work

    Can you help me please, and try to be simple because am not an expert at all :) ?

  • The JW PLayer is a web based player, intended for webmasters who wish to embed videos into their own websites. It is not something that is possible to install on a computer :-)

  • I would recommend that you update your browser and Flash Player installs.

  • Works ok in my Chrome and FF 14.0.1. Win 7, 64 bit.
    I notice you have GZip compression enabled on your site...
    Maybe this is the problem?
