This release of the JW Player 5.7 focuses heavily on lifting HTML5 support closer to parity with Flash. The most glaring gap had been the lack of support for XML playlists and for a visual playlist UI component. We're happy to announce that those features are now available.

You can now scroll through your playlist with a visual component in HTML5 mode. This much-requested feature comes with full skinning support and works in desktop browsers as well as in iOS. Here it is in action:
This example even works on iOS!
Calling all plugin developers: plugins can now keep track of when UI elements appear and disappear. This enables interactive plugins (e.g., sharing or advertising) can position themselves properly depending on whether or not the player's built-in controls are visible.
You can download the JW Player 5.7 for Flash and HTML5 here. As always, we would love to hear your feedback on the release. Just post your comments directly to this blog.
