Mixed type playlist (hls + youtube) does not show youtube content on iOS (JW Player 6.8)

I'm using JW Player 6.8.4616. I embedded a player with a playlist featuring 3 videos: 2 streaming videos served in both RTMP and HLS via a Wowza Streaming Engine instance, and 1 YouTube video:

I can play all 3 videos in Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer on the desktop.

In iOS 7.1.1, in both Safari and Chrome, the first 2 videos play, but when I advance to the 3rd video it skips to the 1st video.

Are there issues mixing types in playlists on iOS? I assume I have the playlist configured properly since it is working on the desktop browsers.

(Apologies if the demo page doesn't work, I generally don't leave the Wowza Streaming Engine running when I'm not actively testing.)

This is because we only fall back to a default YouTube embed on mobile (no playlists). We will support this for 6.9.
