Why does Android work for VOD but not live streaming

I've been able to get desktop, iOS & Android working for VOD streaming at the following link:

But I can only get desktop and iOS working for live streaming per the following link:

Why is that? What can I do to get the live streaming working also?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for all your help with this issue.

On the first link, what does Android play? Neither RTMP or HLS are supported. And RTSP is not a recognized format that JW Player supports.

If you server can stream rtsp you can using something like this.

<script type="text/javascript">
if ((navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Android') != -1) ||
(navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Android') != -1)) {
window.location = "rtsp://";
