problem setting up a resolution switch for live streams

I would like to add a hires and lowres switch

using now

<meta base="rtmp://"/> (other server then where the player is hosted)
<video src="poetryh.flv" height="960" system-bitrate="1000000" width="1280"/>
<video src="poetryl.flv" height="540" system-bitrate="600000" width="720"/>



the html page code:

<div id="player1">Loading the player...</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
playlist: [{
image: '/project_img/POETRY2014_720x540.png',
sources: [{
file: "/video.smil"
file: ""

primary: "flash",
controlbar: "bottom",
height: 540,
width: 720

page can be found on

actually both the stream as the page are served through the same loadbalancer, but are on fysical different servers.

Are these individual RTMP streams working without the use of a smil? Is this only failing via JWPlayer?
