LIVE BROADCAST appears when playing an MP3 accessed via http:

This essentially same question was asked before (Anders Wickman, Feb 2015) in the forum under the Streaming category. I am accessing the jwplayer software on the cloud. Somehow the player assumes that my mp3 file is a live broadcast and the phrase LIVE BROADCAST appears blocking the normal control that allows user to move to different sections of the mp3 file. I tried adding type:'mp3' but to no avail. In the previous post on this forum there was a response (by Cooper Reid) that the mp3 file was not configured properly. But when I played my mp3 file in the previous version of jwplayer (which relied on flash exclusively) there was no problem.
Any other possible explanations would be much appreciated. Please see my relevant code:

<div id="myElement">&nbsp;</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var playerInstance = jwplayer("myElement");
file: ''+'6768722904'+'/'+'Bereishis I'+'.mp3',
width: 640,
height: 40

Hi, there.

It looks like your server has the following cache-control settings enabled:

no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0

This means that your MP3 can’t progressively download, so our player streams it live instead. When I take the same file, download it and store it on my local server without those cache-control settings, the time controls appear in the control bar. You can see this in action at this test page:

I would suggest contacting whomever handles your server to have those settings changed if they are not what you want.

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

Thank you!
