For Cyclone3 multimedia playback we use the JW Media Player. The main reasons are availability, flexibility and versatility. It is also very easy to use and straightforward for page visitors.


According to its authors the JW FLV Player is the Internet's most popular and flexible media player. It supports playback of any format the Adobe Flash Player can handle (FLV, MP4, MP3, AAC, JPG, PNG and GIF). It also supports RTMP, HTTP, live streaming, various playlist formats, a wide range of settings and an extensive javascript API.

The skinning functionality allows you to completely customize its look and its plugin architecture allows the user to easily extend the player with features such as sharing, recommendations, searching, analytics and ad serving.

JW Media player supports many formats: FLV7, FLV8, H.264, Youtube videos, MP3 and AAC audio and JPG, GIF and PNG images.

Case study at

Since its earlier version we have successfully implemented the JW Media FLV player at the Markiza TV channel (a member of the CME group) portal to serve digital media on a large scale. Significant modifications to the player:

  • styling and themes before they were available in the original player - custom theme for the site
  • e-target context  ads support and integration of the ads in the playlist
  • configurable subtitle fonts
  • configurable channel logo in player
  • back-end statistical analysis
