    We have been using JW Player on the web, but we have tried to use it with React Native, using an open source library (https://github.com/chaimPaneth/react-native-jw-media-player) and its been a nighmare with endless problems. The library is maintained by some unaffiliated people online, however JW Player wont assist at all with the issues we're having, just stating that "its unsupported". So we're essentially on our own with it, and unable to find anyone who can help us debug it.
