I have Wowza streaming engine with live video streaming to my local network , What I need is like JWplayer but I need it to work even without internet access (local network) which is not possible with JWplayer .
I prefer HTML5 player and I don't care if it's free or paid .
The player is dedicated for PC only and not for Mobile platform .

Hi mate,
I believe JWPlayer should be able to do the work; you just need to use the self-hosted player version.

I don't know Wowza but I did a quick search and found this page on their documentation.

Did you try this? I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Cheers,
Alex

This is why it wouldn't work :
<script>jwplayer.key = "[jwplayer-key]";</script>

it's need to authenticate the key with the server so it would need internet access all the time , so in my case it's not possible because i'm working on the local network .

Yeah, true.

So what about the HTML5 <video> tag?
Of course this will only work on browsers that support this but if you're playing it offline I guess you have control over your environment.
