we use "playlist[].sources[].type" for our config of jwplayer. For example:
sources: [
{ file: "https://<CDN>/ls/ClientLink?id=9tjK6O97ljy8aI1", type: "rtmp" },
{ file: "http://<CDN>/smil:04261218.smil/playlist.m3u8?id=9rjL4O97ljG3Yw1-03", type: "hls" }
What about DASH? Which type should we use? "dash"? Or something else?

Hello Jan,

In the current release of our player if using DASH as a single source you do not need to specify a type but you can use type:“dash” if you feel the player does not load the stream or recognizes the extension.
