JWPlayer 5.7 works perfectly with RED5 but Failed with JWPlayer 6

Hello everybody,

JWPlayer 5.7 works perfectly with RED5, but what I have to change in this setup to run with JWP 6?

<div id='mediaspace'>This text will be replaced</div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
'autostart': 'true',
'flashplayer': 'player.swf',
'file': 'myfile.mp4',
'streamer': 'rtmp://123.456.78.123/oflaDemo','height':'95%','width':'100%','display.showmute':'true','showstop':'true','backcolor':'000000','frontcolor':'FFFFFF','image':'images/videobg.jpg','controlbar.position':'over','viral.onpause':'false','viral.allowmenu':'false','controlbar.margin':'0','viral.oncomplete':'false'});

Of course, to test it, I used the set (3 files) from JWP6.

The question looks simple, but I don't find any answer on the web.
thank you so much for your help.

Hi, there.

I’m honestly not too sure how it worked in JW Player 5, as I was not around then, but I know with JW 6 and JW 7, you need to put the entire path of the video, even for RTMP, in the file declaration.

For example:

	file: "rtmp://",
	image: "/assets/myVideo.jpg",
	height: 360,
	width: 640

Also, with JW 6, you cannot modify a skin from within the setup block, you need to do this in XML.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!
