JW Player skins change the appearance of the player, adding a custom layer to your player embeds. All visual components of the player (the controlbar, display, tooltip, dock and visual playlist) can be skinned. There are two ways to get a skin for your player. The nine complimentary skins offered in JW7 have been deprecated in JW8, but customizing JW Player is easy with JW Player 8's CSS-based skinning model.
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. The player will automatically translate those fields to match the language on your website. We have included support for 25 languages and will add more by request. Enjoy a seamless experience that increases clarity and engagement for all of your viewers.
Added fallback support for Norwegian automated player translation. In addition to no, which is already supported, the player will now recognize html tag lang attributes of nn or nb as Norwegian as well. To customize text, please use the no object inside of the internationalization block regardless of which code is used in the page s lang attribute. NEW!!
Floating Player: In the industry, a video player that is at least 50% in view on the screen for greater than two seconds is considered viewable. Viewability is a key signal of engagement, which is why it has become the gold standard for publishers and advertisers alike. JW 8.8.0 introduces the floating player, which minimizes itself to the bottom right corner of the screen when a viewer scrolls the player out of view. It ensures nearly 100% viewability and can be easily dismissed back to its original position.
Keyboards Shortcuts: Improved support for keyboard navigation in JW8. Users can tab to advance through buttons and menu options in the player, and use the enter key in lieu of a click to take action on any focused item. The escape key can be used to close overlays and menus.
We are invested in inclusive practices that comply with laws and standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Our web player is accessible by keyboard and screen reader, and supports and renders all popular captions formats.
Auto Start: Choose Automatically start the player on load, Added config which starts playback on desktop devices when the player appears in view rather than on page load or via user click.
Pop-Up Player - (JWBox, Modal, Bootstrap Modal, Windows, Highslide), You can activate or not a Pop-Up Player, it will appear under the player, by a text or an image or both or replace the player, Pop Up Player have a lot of controls :
Registering with Google Cast : JW 7+ no longer uses the custom receiver application hosted by JW Player. Instead, once casting is enabled the player will connect to the default receiver application hosted by Google. Because of this, you no longer need to register an application ID with Google and all existing setups will function correctly.
Introducing a new user interface for our Recommendations customers: the shelf widget, which dynamically inserts a horizontally-scrolling carousel of thumbnails directly below the player. In contrast to the in-player shelf, which is only visible on pause and when the viewer manually opens it themselves, the new widget interface is always viewable below the player. We encourage you to turn on the shelf widget, which will further increase opportunities to display recommendations and drive plays as a result. (Business and Enterprise editions only)
JW Analytics, Website Statistics. JW Player 6 offers a set of hosted services that augment the functionality of the client-side JW Player library.

There is generally a misconception that everyone can use the free player, but this only counts for non-commercial sites.Contrary to what I wrote previously (before this update): JW Player now decided that the free player will be free for all, regardless whether your site is commercial or not.
