JW Player, progressive download mode

I planned to use Amazon S3 for video storage + Cloudfront for delivery and streaming.

Now what I would need to ask is this: as you can see, in my first experiment, I inserted directly reference to my original mp4 file, without converted it (with Amazon Elastic Transcoder for example) to HLS stream....

<div id="my-video"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
file: "rtmp://",
width: "720",
height: "480",
primary: "flash",
mediaid: "PmFWgpGy"

So my question is: in such a configuration, is jw player using "progressive download"?

In your code example you’re using RTMP, so it’s a streaming protocol and not a progressive download of the MP4. However, I would ask you to consider using HLS as it doesn’t require flash and is compatible with mobile devices.

Let me know if that helps,
