Making JW Player 5 responsive

I am struggling to make a JW player 5 responsive so that it will display properly on our responsive website (right now it only displays at 150px high). I've tried some of the jQuery and CSS/HTML hacks and they haven't worked for me.

I don't know if the fact that I am trying to figure it out on a WordPress site is impacting my success (I'm adding the code to a raw .js module and using page-specific CSS).

Here's the code:
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<video id="mediaplayer" width="100%" height="100%" src="" type="video/mp4"></video>
<script type="text/javascript">
// <![CDATA[
'id': 'playerID',
'width': '540',
'height': '404',
'image': '',
'modes': [{
type: "flash",
src: "",
config: {
file: "360north",
streamer: "rtmp://",
provider: "rtmp"
}, {
type: 'html5',
config: {
'file': '',
'provider': 'video'
// ]]>

We do support the use of responsive design within JW6. Currently, we do not natively support this natively with JW5.

Thanks for your reply. Would I need to buy a pro or premium license to use .m3u8 playlists?
