Playing live webm stream via HTTP

JW Player goes into a endless buffering mode when I am trying to play a live webm stream, streamed via HTTP.
When I enable "debug: true", I see this -
jwplayerMediaMeta Object { duration=Infinity, height=0, width=0, more...}
although, the webm header is correctly sending 800x600 as the width and height.
The same webm plays on Chrome and Mozilla.

Also, if I stream the same stream via Stream-m, the open source webm streamer, JWPlayer works fine.
Can anyone shed some light into why JWPlayer is reporting height and width as 0?.
Any help here will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Sriram,

I don’t believe we support the use of live WebM files with our player. Currently, our only supported streaming methods are RTMP and HLS.
