JW Player Not Connect To RTMP Stream From Wowza


Would anyone please be able to help me to resolve a problem I have getting JW Player to connect to a live RTMP stream coming from Wowza? I keep getting the message that JW Player is not supported in offline mode.

I have setup a local web server using XAMMP on my windows PC and placed the JW Player folder with files in the root directory of the local web server (C:\xampp\htdocsjw player\) and I have placed my web page with the JW Player code in the root directory of the local web server.

The Wowza stream is running OK as I can view it using the test players in Wowza but the JW Player will not connect to it. Is JW Player not capable of running on a local web server in the root folder? Or is there an error with my JW Player code? I have pasted the JW Player code below:
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<script src="/jwplayer/jwplayer.js" ></script>
<div id='playerkCCsQilMzLeN'></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
file: 'rtmp://',
image: '/images/logo.jpg',
title: 'Test Stream',
height: 360,
rtmp: {
bufferlength: 0.1
width: 640

Any help most appreciated as I have spend hours trying to get this to work.

Thank you for contacting the support team. From what I can gather, it seems that your setup should work from a general stand point.

Give this a try and see if this works for you:

<html> <head>

<script src=""></script>

</head> <body> <center> <div id="myVideo">Loading Your Player…</div>

<script> jwplayer.key="KEYXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"; jwplayer("myVideo").setup({ file:'rtmp://', androidhls: "true", height: '281', width: '500', image: '', }); </script>

</center> </body> </html>

Also, ensure your network traffic in the console is passing through your network as intended and you are not receiving any crossdomain/CORS errors.
