Upgrade !!

Changelog JW Player Plugin Advanced 3.12.0 :

^ Upgrade to JW Player 7.12.3.

Designed with publishers of education and sports media in mind, JW Player 7.12.0 introduces a new configuration option to enable playback rate controls.
When enabled, a tooltip menu in the control bar gives viewers the ability to control the playback speed of the video.
Publishers can choose to show our pre-set rates or to configure custom values between 0.25x and 4x.
Developers can also use the new API getter, setter and event listener to control the playbackRate.
This release also includes native caption and subtitle support for casting.

+ Improvements

Added the playbackRateControls configuration option to enable the playback rate menu in the controlbar. This allows viewers to control the videos playback speed. Publishers may use default or custom speed values. When playing HLS streams on Android Chrome or using Flash, the menu will be hidden due to unsupported functionality.
Added setPlaybackRate and getPlaybackRate API methods and a playbackRateChanged event listener.Note that this is not supported in Flash or Android Chrome with HLS streams.
Added support for embedded and sideloaded VTT tracks in the default Chromecast receiver. Captions style configuration options are also applied to the receiver.
VTT tracks must be loaded from the same domain as the media.
Set the video elements title attribute so that the media title displays on iOS and Android lock screens during playback.
Updated 403 error copy to You do not have permission to access this content.
Expose the PROGRAM-DATE-TIME from HLS manifests in the meta event.
Improved manual quality switching in DASH streams so that when a viewer chooses a higher quality, the switch happens immediately. If the viewer chooses a lower quality, the existing buffer is played, then the quality switch occurs.
Added a new API method, setConfig, to set multiple properties at once. The following properties are supported: repeat, autostart, mute, and volume.
Added HLSjs debug output to the player’s debug logs. This is automatically enabled when jwplayer.debug to true.
Added the viewable event, making it easier to control the user experience based on the player’s visibility. Previously, developers had to rely on the viewable property in other events (eg. time, play) to know when the players is above the fold in the active tab.
Expanded HLS.js usage to Edge. This significantly improves the viewing experience over the native playback of HLS streams. Users can expect to see a reduction in artifacts, better captions display, and support for captions styling.
Improved the user experience of the sharing overlay. It s now less intrusive at larger player sizes, allowing playback to continue while the viewer makes a selection from the newly redesigned sharing menu.
Added support for multi-track captions in DASH streams, allowing viewers to select any of the captions tracks specified in a DASH manifest.
Added support for custom license request filters with DASH streams using Widevine or PlayReady.
Shaka provider has been updated to version 2.1.4.
