Stream works on LTE but not on Wifi

My iOS 9 iPhone 5 is trying to watch

While on LTE the video plays at its highest quality, but on my WiFi (5Ghz @ 77mbps per speed test) is only getting the audio only stream. In my SMIL file, the player for the phone on Wifi is selecting the lowest quality first and I can't force it up.

Why would it play on LTE ok but not Wifi?

Never mind I found the issue. I was using Wowza with the transcoded and SMIL files. One of the transcode profiles was a passthru of the incoming stream, which is incompatible. The player reverted to it because it was the best quality, but was incompatible with the phone. I removed the profile and it's working great. Not a JWPlayer issue at all.
