Free video streaming alternative to JWPlayer?

Hey guys

Is there a free video streaming alternative to JWPlayer? Or is that the only way to stream videos via S3/Cloudfront with S2Member?


I just self-host and have a great hosting plan! I have over 200 videos on my teaching site.

Hi Lucas.

You can still protect the files with s2 hosted on AWS, even if you use another player. The s2Stream shortcode works with JWPlayer, but you can use the code of another player you choose.

Just generate the link to the file with the s2File shortcode, or the PHP function, so it has all the needed credentials for the file to be downloaded… WP Admin > s2Member > Download Options > Shortcode Attributes & API Functions

I hope that helps. :slight_smile:

Thanks Cristián!
