Flash and HTML5 fallback

I don't know html code very well but I found and modified the below code (see URL source for code).

Flash works but I get a 'no playable sources found' on my mobile devices. I do know that if I place my m3ugen url between video tags as a simple HTML5 stream, the stream works. Any help would be appreciated.

I see that you are using jw5 code here, but using jw6.

You need to set up the player like this –

1st source is rtmp, 2nd source is hls

how to use rtmp in jw6 –

JW Player

Ethan. Thank you, Thank you,

What you gave, was exactly what I needed.

For others here is what worked for me.

I am using the following equipment:
* 2 Windows 2008 server. Both are ESX VMs
1 server runs Helix Producer Pro ver 14
1 server runs Helix Mobile Server ver 14
* 1 Panasonic WV-SW395 security camera
* 1 Linux server to host my web site and JWPlayer 6

The way it works:
* Camera streams live video in an H.264 format.
* I basicly used the cameras defaults for the stream
* But I used some security features to lock down the camera
* Helix Producer Pro captures that video
* resends it to the Helix Mobile Server in an mp4 format
* Helix Producer Pro is a commercial version of a product
like VLC an open source product
* The Helix Mobile Server streams the video to my web site in a format
that JWPlayer understands.
* Helix Mobile Server is a commercial version of a product
like Wowza another commercial product

Here is the code for my web site;

<head><title>Give you browser tab a title</title></head>

<body bgcolor="#000000" text="#0FCCFF" link="#0FCCFF" vlink="#0FCCFF" alink="#0FCCFF" topmargin="200" leftmargin="0">

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://address to your jwplayer.js"></script>

<div id="mediaplayer"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
