Changelog JW Player Plugin Advanced 4.6.0 :

^ Upgrade to JW Player 8.6.2

Automated Player Translations

JW Player wants to save you time and improve the viewer experience out of the box with our latest feature, automated player localization.
Did you know that our video player contains over 50 customizable tooltips, labels for menus and overlays, and ARIA labels (for accessibility viewers who use screen readers)?
Previously, you had to customize these fields in order to provide a better viewing experience on non-English language sites. It is time consuming to translate the player, so we have done the work for you so that your viewers can benefit today.
Beginning with 8.6, the player will automatically translate those fields to match the language on your website. We have included support for 14 languages and will add more by request. Enjoy a seamless experience that increases clarity and engagement for all of your viewers.

Core Player

Increased contrast ratio of the quality level label when Auto is selected.
Changed focus behavior so that focus remains on the fullscreen icon when entering and exiting fullscreen.
Improved responsive scaling of the shelf widget when using the selector configuration option to decouple the width of the player from the width of the widget.
Added more granular DASH and HLS playback error codes.
Added specific error codes for cases where an attempt to start playback fails.
Reduced player setup errors by extending the setup timeout from 30 to 60 seconds.
Created a new warning event that displays messages in the developer console, alerting developers of non-fatal errors.. Note: Documentation updates about these changes are coming soon.
Updated the name of the Chromecast button component from button to google-cast-launcher to reflect (changes made by Google)[ developers.google.com/cast/docs/chrome_sender_integrate#cast_button ] to be compatible with React.
Added a new configuration option, displayPlaybackLabel, which adds click-to-play call to action text below the play icon on the idle screen. Testing has shown a 3-5percent lift in clicks to play with this feature enabled. The default text is Play and it can be customized or translated in the intl block with the playback option.
Rotating an Android device with a control-bar only (audio) player or when controls are disabled will not cause the player to go into fullscreen mode.
dded non-fatal, console-logged warning events and error codes. See our Errors Reference for updates.
Added a new div, which wraps the player s existing DOM structure, in order to make way for upcoming features.

Localization
For more information on the release note below, please see the Configuration Reference and the support article on how to translate player text with automated player localization.

Added support for players to automatically translate tooltips, ARIA labels, and headings into 14 different languages, based on the language attribute declared in the HTML tag on the page. If the lang attribute is not present, the viewer s browser language will be used, and a translation will still be provided if available. For a full list of languages supported and to request support for another language, please see the support article. support.jwplayer.com/articles/translate-video-player-text
Introduced a new object, the intl block, which accepts an array of objects of ISO language codes. Each language object accepts all the localization strings previously used in localization. Going forward, developers are encouraged to use the intl block so that a single player can be used across pages localized in any language.
Added 12 new localizable strings, which includes link, auto, off and more, as well as updated the default values for a few existing strings. All hard-coded strings are now mapped to localizable strings.
Moved the following fields into the intl block so that they can be localized by language: abouttext, advertising.admessage, advertising.cuetext, advertising.loadingAd, advertising.podmessage, advertising.skipmessage, advertising.skiptext, related.autoplaymessage, sharing.heading. These fields will be backward compatible with their original locations, but will not take advantage of the automated player localization features for those fields. All fields should be nested in the intl block as written.
Moved localization.related to related.heading within the intl block. In a localization context, related is now an object nested inside the intl block.

Advertising

Removed the auto-exit fullscreen functionality when using IMA with skippable ads, now that iOS 12 allows the video element (and thus the skip button to) work in fullscreen instead of the native player.
Decluttered the seek slider by removing cue markers for non-linear (banner overlay) ads.
In the VAST plugin, added support for the following attributes in the ad tag wrapper:
fallbackOnNoAd – selects any stand-alone adwhen set to true and the response contains no ad.The default is false.
followAdditionalWrappers – ignores wrappers received in the response when set to false. The default is true.
allowMultipleAds – only allows stand alone adswhen set to false. The default is true.
To make the player more resilient, if IMA erroneously clears the video tag when trying to resume playback from an ad, the player will try to recover by attempting to reload the item source.
Expanded the on(adsManager) event, which fires when the ad manager is loaded, to IMA. This event can be used to integrate with third-party vendors.

^ Change layout backend sub menu, using class alert alert-info.

Upgrade !!

Changelog JW Player Plugin Advanced 4.7.0 :

^ Upgrade to JW Player 8.7.0, SCTE-35 Support

SCTE-35 is a form of metadata, similar to the ID3 tagging system applied to streaming media, that broadcasters have been using for years for traditional broadcast television, and now, web streams.
Like ID3 metadata tags, SCTE-35 markers can be added to an HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) manifest to provide contextual and temporal metadata.
In JW 8.7, the player exposes SCTE-35 CUE-OUT and CUE-IN points, as well as DATERANGE tags to indicate when there are breaks in your live stream.

Core Player

Added a new property to meta events, metadataType, which indicates the type of metadata available in the event. Possible values are: media, program-date-time, id3, date-range, scte-35, and unknown.
Added a new event metadataCueParsed which is triggered once the metadata cue point is buffered.
Exposed CUE-OUT, CUE-IN, and DATERANGE SCTE-35 metadata tags that are parsed in an HLS manifest. When a metadata tag becomes active, the following SCTE-35 meta events are fired: #EXT-X-DATERANGE, #EXT-X-CUE-OUT, and #EXT-X-CUE-IN.
Improved handling of cross-origin 360/VR videos in Chrome 70 and Safari 12 so that instead of displaying a blank screen, the player errors with a new 307012 code.

Localization

Added automated localization support for Hebrew.
Added new localization options and updated all automated localization files to include translations for Mute, Unmute, and Exit Fullscreen icon tooltip texts and ARIA labels.
Changed the default English localization text for slider from Seek Slider to Seek to reduce screen reader redundancy.
Improved readability, punctuation, and string concatenation for all right-to-left languages, including Arabic and Hebrew.

Accessibility

Added screen reader support to announce the video position changes when using the left and right arrow keyboard shortcuts while not focused on the timeline element.
Added screen reader support to announce volume changes when using the up and down arrow keyboard shortcuts while not focused on the volume slider element.
Improved volume keyboard accessibility by separating the mute icon from the volume slider. Now, when a user tabs to the mute icon, hitting enter will mute or unmute the player. Tabbing out of the mute icon, the volume slider will appear and can be controlled. Tabbing out of the volume slider will hide the slider and move focus to the next focusable icon.
Fixed a bug causing the volume slider to be read as a left-right slider when it is actually an up-down slider.
Added a blue focus ring that appears around any focused element when accessed by keyboard, which improves focus visibility.

Advertising

Improved ad rendition selection in Freewheel by passing the player s bitrate estimate to the AdsManager.
Added a new bidding configuration option, no_vpaid_ads to the optionalParams object, which restricts VPAIDs and only serves mp4 ads with no SpotX VPAID wrapper.
Added pause reasons to the response for on(adPause) in the VAST, IMA, and Freewheel clients.
Ungated VAST 4.1 tags, enabling ad tags marked with the latest VAST version to play. VAST 4.1 features that are not yet supported in JW Player will be ignored.
Added (automated localization)[ support.jwplayer.com/articles/translate-video-player-text ] of all Google IMA text to match the player s language. Developers may also declare a two-letter ISO language in advertising.locale.
JW8 language advertising.SetLocale change to advertising.locale, for JW7 you can still used SetLocale in front end parameters or backend extra plugin parameters.

+ Support Joomla 4 as beta.

Extension used now JPlugin class and onContentPrepare Function.
Change replacement shortcode method.
