JWplayer with Wowza

I have a Wowza streaming engine server on our Intranet. I am using JWplayer to play the videos. There is no problem if the client has access to Internet, but if I disconnect from Internet, the JWplayer does not play.
I found that if I use JWPlayer version 7.3.6 , and use Google Chrome on the client, it works. But FireFox, and IE does not work. Please help

What is the playback error you receive? Have you tried with the latest version of the player?

This is the error message on a black screen:

Setup timeout error: Setup took longer than 30 seconds to complete.

I checked the latest version (7.12.8) with flash, and HTML5. In the flash mode , it works up to jwplayer version 7.4. Not for 7.5 and above. In HTML5 it does not work.

I found that jwplayer is trying to connect to I also removed this link from jwplayer.js file, but it does not work.

I solved the problem myself.

I added the following line to my code in jwplayer("player").setup ()

base: ".",

And downloaded jwpsrv.js & jwpsrv_frq.js and placed them in jw folder besides to jwplayer.js.

It works for flash and HTML5 up to the latest version (7.12.8)
