The browser tries to download my live stream file

I signed into, and used the "Publish a Video Now" tool to try out a live stream that I had. The url is, and it plays perfectly in the tool.

When I get the embed code and put it on my site, and click on Play, the browser downloads the m3u8 file as a regular file and does not play the video.

Here is the embed code that I'm trying to use on

<script src=""></script>
<div id='playerPHjCaJkJCOpQ'></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
file: '',
image: '//',
width: '100%',
aspectratio: '16:9'

Nevermind! I had a script reference to old older version of JW Player. Disregard this post please.

Oh! I was just about post that you were using an older version. :) Glad it’s figured out.
