Bitrate switching

Hello ,

I am using Jwplayer6.

I am using wowza server 2.1.2 for video streaming.

When flash is disabled in browser i am playing video through html5 video tag

Now , suppose i disabled flash player in my browser.

Now I want to enable bitrate switching , so it measured the bandwidth and the player size, and chose the .mp4 file that had approximately the same video size as the player and the maximum bit rate it could use based on the internet speed.

When flash is enable i am able to use bitrate switching , but when flash is disabled i am not able to perform bitrate switching.

When flash is disable i use video tag of html5.

How can I setup Jwplayer6 to use this automatic bitrate switching when i am playing video through html5 video tag?

I also want button for the user to choose the quality, they should get the maximum quality they can get based on their device and internet without any lag automatically.

I believe I am understanding that you would like to have the ability to adaptively switch streams in 6.12.4956. Have you tried using the hlshtml parameter with primary html5:

hlshtml: true,
primary: ‘html5’

I believe this might work for you.
