Error handling for if a source doesn't exist?


$sources = '
file: "'.$mp4SD.'",
file: "'.$mp4HD.'",
file: "'.$webmSD.'",
file: "'.$webmHD.'",
file: "'.$flv.'",


<div id="myElement">Loading the player...</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
height: <?php echo $this->height; ?>,
width:<?php echo $this->width; ?>,
flashplayer: "<?php echo ($this->assetsUrl.'/jwplayer.flash.swf');?>",
sources: <?php echo $sources; ?>

In some cases there won't always be a HD file, and possibly a file might be missing.

I've noticed the player will simply break if a video file doesn't exist.

So is it a case of doing PHP checks, or is there some functionality in the player to handle missing files?
