Live Stream....multiple formats

We have a json feed with a live stream of some cameras. I currently have things set up like this and is working. This works for all devices tested so far. Android < 5 get a link, Android Lollipop seems to stream fine without issues, iOS/iPad are streaming fine, and so are the desktops with multiple browsers tested.

<div id="XXXXXXXXXXX" style="text-align: center;">
Some of the older devices may need to click on the link below to display in their native video player in order to view the traffic cameras
<br /><a href="rtsp://XXX.XX.XX.XX:554/live/">CAMID</a>

<script type="text/javascript">
var ua = navigator.userAgent;
var androidStatus = false;

if(ua.indexOf("Android") >= 0) {
var androidVersion = parseFloat(ua.slice(ua.indexOf("Android") + 8));
androidStatus = androidVersion < 5.0;
sources: [{
file: "rtmp://XXX.XX.XX.XX:1935/live/"
file: "http://XXX.XX.XX.XX:1935/live/"
rtmp: {
bufferlength: 3
width: "100%",
aspectratio: "4:3",
androidhls: androidStatus ? false : true,
fallback: androidStatus ? false : true


Now we have two other files to try and incorporate into this player.

MSSmooth Stream

Adobe HDS

What is the best way to incorporate these other streams into the above code?

I would be happy to share a test page with JWPlayer Support, but won't post it on the blog, as it is not ready for prime time...still testing our streams from Wowza.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

The player does not support HDS or smooth streaming natively. Currently, we only support HLS and RTMP. Is there a reason why these additional streaming methods would be required?
