jwplayer not playing in Facebook browser on iphone


I'm using JW Player 6.8.4616 (Premium edition)
I have a simple page with the jw player, something like
bc.. <div id="vid">Loading the player...</div>
file: "v1.MP4",
autostart: "false",
repeat: "false"

I create a facebook post linking to this page. It works fine in every browser except when I use my facebook app on iphone.
Facebook seems to use its own browser, here's the user agent:
bc.. Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 7_0_4 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/537.51.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile/11B554a [FBAN/FBIOS;FBAV/;FBBV/1325030;FBDV/iPhone5,2;FBMD/iPhone;FBSN/iPhone OS;FBSV/7.0.4;FBSS/2; FBCR/BouyguesTelecom;FBID/phone;FBLC/fr_FR;FBOP/5]

I can see the player but I can't play the video, nothing happens when I press the play button.
If I open the same link in Safari on my iphone, it works fine.

I am trying to investigate this issue by looking at the javascript but the minified javascript is rather hard to read :)

Is there a place where I can get a non minified version of jwplayer? I have JW Player 6.8.4616 (Premium edition)
