Before JW Media Player, there was Flash Player, the simple and most basic implementation of a Flash-based Media Player. Because of its easy-of-use and simplicity, it became quite popular with early-adopters and developers looking to gain a leg-up on the competition and release video to their websites before the major players released their initiatives (Apple's Quicktime in 1998, Adobe's Adobe Media Player in 2004, and Microsoft's Silverlight in 2008, among a plethora of other late early arrivals to the online video space).
