jwplayer fails to issue new streaming requests

I am using jwplayer as a thin wrapper around html5 video elements to stream videos and consistently have an issue where the current 206 request to stream videos stops delivering content after a random amount of time. Issuing a new 206 request does work, but the player (or maybe underlying video element) does not issue a new request unless the previous request actually gets cancelled.

I found a workaround on at (the answer that references window.stop() and this other stackoverflow post, but this seems like it could be an issue with how jwplayer handles buffering internally.
