Here is a simple JWPlayer that you can install or put inside your Blogger or blogspot post or page. You can use this to play your own video or live streaming (m3u8 link, or HLS links).

To be able to have your own JWPlayer inside a post or page just follow the steps below.

1. Copy and paste the given code below inside your blog (HTML) post or page.

<script src="//jwpsrv.com/library/O4mPlqeTEeK_viIACpYGxA.js"></script>
<div id="my-video">
<script>// <![CDATA[
jwplayer('my-video').setup({         file: 'PLACE YOUR M3U8 LINK HERE',         width: '100%',         height: '480px',         autostart: 'true',            primary: 'html5', hlshtml: 'true'    });
// ]]></script>

2. Just replace the m3u8 link or source with your own.

3. When done, save your work. See a live sample below this post.


a. You can change the width value to whatever size you want as well as the height.
b. If you want the video or live stream to disable auto start just change it to false.
c. If you want to put a title on your video just add title: 'Live stream Title' after the height attribute. Make sure to put a comma after it.

Note: If your m3u8/HLS link is http and your website is https, the stream will not load. So make your your website has both the http and https option.

The above given code will also work in Wordpress, and other website with javascript enabled.

Live sample JWPlayer with M3U8 link.
As written on the note above, the embedded video will not play because Sharingthat.xyz website runs in https while the m3u8 link is in http only.

To really make this tutorial working, I searched a working m3u8 link that runs via https. We got here the link for FTV Paris https://fash1043.cloudycdn.services/slive/_definst_/ftv_paris_adaptive.smil/chunklist_b380000_t64MTQ0cA==.m3u8
Using the same JWPlayer code given above. See the working live sample below.
