Live stream feeds in creating a playlist

I have read the following article:

Has anybody used an external URL/stream in this setup? I am basically wanting to create a "player" with three feeds that will allow the user to select a specific feed of their choosing. This article is based off an uploaded file. All my feeds will be live.

Hi there,

You should be able to accomplish what you are trying to do by replacing any reference to a MP4 file in those code examples with URLs to your live streams. For example, if your default live stream’s URL was, the first code example on that page would become:

<div id="myElement"></div>

var playerInstance = jwplayer("myElement");
	image: "/uploads/myPoster.jpg",
	file: "",
	title: "My Cool Trailer"

The same thing would apply when providing the options to load the other streams. For example, the third code example on that page would look like this:

<li><a href="javascript:loadVideo('','image1.jpg')">Video 1</a></li>
<li><a href="javascript:loadVideo('','image2.jpg')">Video 2</a></li>
<li><a href="javascript:loadVideo(','image3.jpg')">Video 3</a></li>
