JWPlayer not working in Boxes

Recommended Posts

awww

I'm trying to use the JW Player in a Box in the Header region but the shortcode doesn't render. It simply displays the code. The same code works perfectly in the body of a post. The code: [jwplayer config="my-custom-JW-config" file="http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3" html5_file="http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3" download_file="http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3"] I'm using PageLines Pro 2.2.1. I've tried using the default configs, and this simpler code, too: [jwplayer config="my-custom-JW-config" file="http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3'>http://URL-TO.mp3"] Curiously, the MediaElement player works in exactly the same place. However, that player doesn't work on older iPhones and iPads, so I'm testing others to see if I can get a player that works on every mobile device I can test against (since about 25% of our traffic is mobile, this is important). I've searched the forum and haven't uncovered an answer to this. The site is not available for viewing, as it is password-protected while under development.

The Box probably isn't rendering the shortcode properly (a lot of shortcodes are meant to work in posts). I think you should try using some kind of player that uses regular embed code to display the video.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
