JWPlayer 6 Dynamic RTMP / SMIL / CloudFront

I'm trying to get dynamic RTMP streaming to work with JWPlayer 6, SMIL, and CloudFront. I have no problem getting a single stream going with JWPlayer 6 and CloudFront, and I can easily get JWPlayer to recognize the SMIL manifest as indicated by the correlating resolution options in the player. I receive no error in the player when trying to playback the mp4 video.

This leads me to believe that the problem I'm having is with the actual contents of the SMIL manifest. I've discovered several examples, none of which seem to work. Currently my SMIL file is as follows:

<meta base="rtmp://" />
<video src="amethyst2014/media/Amethyst_flat_trim_v1-1000.mp4" height="468" system-bitrate="1000" width="732" />
<video src="amethyst2014/media/Amethyst_flat_trim_v1-500.mp4" height="360" system-bitrate="500" width="640" />

What seems to be missing or incorrect with this SMIL manifest? Is there something else new that I'm missing between JWPlayer 6 and CloudFront?
