Change Log

Avoid using specific player version

It is not recommended to specify the player version when you are embedding. We recommend just using v2 so that your embed code gets updated to the latest version automatically. If you want the player script to not change for any reason, you can specify an exact player version.

All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file. This project adheres to Semantic Versioning.
