jwplayer setup properties.

Below is the setup function of jwplayer version 7.12
file: fileName,
width: "100%",
aspectratio: "16:9",
autostart: true,
androidhls: false,
hlsjsdefault: true

What is the purpose of last two properties in the jwplayer setup? I have added these because not able to play m3u8 files on Android devices in firefox.

My name is Timoor Kurdi and I’m a Support Engineer at JW Player.

For HLS content on Android we defer to native support and unfortunately, FF doesn’t natively support it. Our non-native solution, Hls.js, does support Android FF but there are still bugs to be worked out in our integration with it. You can use it today but you may encounter issues.

But I highly recommend updating to the latest and most stable version of the player which is JW Player 8, as we are constantly making sure to have the latest updates released for that version and taking care of any bugs along the way.
