Error loading player: HTML5 player not found

This thread may refer to an older version of JW Player! Check our articles for the most up-to-date information.

    The audio file at the bottom of the page only works in Firefox. Does not work in Chrome or IE. In those two browsers we only receive this message: "Error loading player: HTML5 player not found"

    Note: pulls in SoundCloud audio and plays just fine. But we need to store our audio on our own servers and not rely on SoundCloud. So, the issue is with self-hosted audio.

    Thank you

  • I don’t see the JW player on this page, please advise.

  • The JW Player is under the content. The title says "Miracle reads Korean." Please click on audio and attempt to play the file in Chrome or IE and you will see an error.

    Again, the file plays just fine in Firefox.

    Thank you

  • In which file, specifically, please? I am not a coder and I have no idea what file that line of code would go into.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Please specify which file I need to provide the code for. There is: jwplayer.flash.swf, jwplayer.html5.js, jwplayer.js, player.swf.

    Whish of these files do you need the code for? Or is there another file that you need the code for?

    Thank you

  • Here is the code for each of the files. The name of the file is announced at the beginning of each code section.

    Actually...I was not able to paste the code here. I received some sort of error. I created a Google Doc file which can be viewed online. I pasted the code for all 4 files there.

  • These are the sources of our files. I mean you player embed code on your page itself.

  • My apologies I posted the wrong code for you...Sorry about that...

    We use shortcode for a WordPress site.
    [track track_no="1" title="Miracle Reads Korean - 1.11.2013" subtitle="Self-hosted audio player" type="player"][/track]

    Again, I am not a programmer. So, working with code is not my specialty. I have never actually accessed the code for the JW Player.

    This code is active here:

    In IE and Chrome the player does NOT work. It DOES work in Firefox.

  • I would personally recommend using our own WP plugin –

    Then, use this shortcode, after the plugin is installed – [jwplayer file=“”]
