Intermittent Issues WIth JWPlayer
HI everyone. This isn't so much a question as it is a solution to a frustrating problem. I'm putting it here in case anyone else runs into this.
We had a recent problem after upgrading to JWPlayer 6.12 (from JWPlayer5) in that our videos would intermittently render. After debugging, I found that it has to do with the DIV ID value. It cannot start with a numeric value.
In order to display multiple videos per page, we had a random string generator for the DIV IDs. This value returned a mix of alphanumeric characters. We noticed that the ones that always rendered started with an alpha character, but those that didn't render started with a numeric value.
Once we prefixed our random string with an alpha character, everything worked like a charm.
I hope this helps out someone else out there.
