HTML5 Streaming Issue

We use the licensed JW Player 5.9.2156 and Adobe Media Server 5 to stream F4V videos.

What's a good code example to follow? I'd like to modify our code to show videos using HTML 5 with Flash fall back. I noticed the RTMP streaming articles use code with a playlist of sources (instead of modes) and MP4 files.

Here is what we currently use. The HTML5 fall back does not look like it is working.
