What is the difference between S3Media Stream and S3Media Stream Enterprise?

S3Media Stream regular does not require a yearly renewal for the JW Player license, instead a one-time license is required since the plugin ships with JWplayer 5.10 commercial, whereas S3Media Stream Enterprise ships with JWplayer 7.x, requiring either a free license or a a yearly JW Player Premium license to unlock premium features such as HLS adaptive streaming and 360 VR video.

The Enterprise version has a responsive video/audio player, multilingual subtitle support, Social sharing and Google Analytics on board.


A couple of good features are lost in JWplayer 6.x, like Full sceen, start from, duration, sticky controlbar, icons in the video area which are features of the regular version using JWplayer 5.10.
However, the new features are worthwhile, depending on your needs and support for mobile devices is improved considerably.
We made this version presuming that you want to work with private streaming (for streaming) and download distributions (for HTMLfallback). If you do not plan to use the plugin for this purpose, the regular version is more suitable.
