Upgraded from JWPlayer 6 to JWPlayer 7, smil is throwing a manifest not found or invalid error


I just finally upgraded from JWPlayer 6 to JWPlayer 7. I was wondering about smil.

Here is my setup:

playlist: [{
image: ""+content_data['video_id']+".jpg",
sources: [
{ file: "/videos/"+content_data['video_id']+"/getsmil.smil" },
{ file: ""+content_data['video_filename'] }
primary: "html5",
flashplayer: '',
width: '100%',
height: '100%',
aspectratio: '16:9',
skin: "seven",
screencolor: 'FFFFFF',
wmode : 'transparent'

All the videos produce the same error: Error loading stream: Manifest not found or invalid

If I remove the smil file it works fine. Is this something with JWPlayer 7? Is my setup deprecated? This worked fine with version 6. Any tips is appreciated!
