Here’s a quote from JW Player’s announcement on its website.

If you are looking at bringing an element of OTT to your brand, in three lines of code you can start using the basic Google Chromecast integration that we have built into JW Player 6.9. The JW Player can cast video onto the Chromecast connected TV and then turn into a remote control. This means no more messy VGA/HDMI/RCA cables, lost dongles, or wireless mice and keyboards making a mess of your living room. On top of a super easy setup, the Chromecast integration has additional advanced features that are worth checking out.

In this update finally, JW Player has added HTML5 and Flash keyboard shortcuts, which should simplify using the video player with a keyboard. The new single tab-focus model lets the viewer control the player with natural keyboard shortcuts.
