JW5 - RTSP in HTML5 video tag


Im having trouble using RTSP Live streaming in the HTML5 video TAG.

The setup is similar to this:

bc.. <script type="text/javascript" src="../mediaplayer/mediaplayer-5.10/jwplayer.js"></script>

<video height="270" width="480" id="myVideo" controls="controls">
<source src="rtsp://" type="video/mp4">

<script type="text/javascript">
modes: [
{ type: 'html5' }

* Is this OK?
* Im using Wowza for delivering RTSP live streaming. Can it be an issue in the server configuration?

Thanks for your help!
