^ Upgrade to JW Player 8.29.0

With the rollout of JW 8.29.0, we're continuing our journey of enhancing user experience. This release focuses on updating the OMID version and ensuring better accessibility with ARIA labels. We've also deprecated player configurations and addressed a bug concerning caption update intervals.

New Features

OMID has been upgraded to version 1.4.2.
For a more accessible user interface, ARIA labels have been incorporated into the float bar icon.

Bug Fix

The minimumUpdatePeriod value now consistently dictates the frequency of caption updates in the player.


The trackerName and useUniversalAnalytics player configurations have been deprecated since Google dropped support for Universal Analytics on 1 July 2023.

With the release of JW 8.28.0, new features include adding a showAdMarkers property for ad display control, improvements to playlist filtering (except when doNotTrack is enabled), and new accessibility shortcuts in JWP. Bug fixes address video resizing in Safari and a Freewheel capability flags issue.
New Features

HLS.js (hlsjs) has been updated to ver. 1.4.10.
A new property called showAdMarkers has been added to the timeSlider configuration object, allowing ad markers to be displayed or removing them and introducing a new ad countdown element that appears 5 seconds before a mid-roll (as shown in the release note image above).
The source asset has been filtered out of the Recommended playlists. If doNotTrack is enabled in the browser, no filtering occurs.
JWP supports new accessibility keyboard shortcuts to increase caption size (+) and decrease caption size (-).

Bug Fixes

Videos display correctly resized on both desktop and mobile versions of Safari.
An issue related to properly adding custom capability flags for Freewheel has been addressed.
When using setFloating, the float functionality now works during ad breaks.
