SMIL playback working on Android/iPhone/iPad but not on Desktop browsers

I've videos uploaded to my Amazon S3 bucket and I've setup a SMIL file with the proper details. I also own the premium version of the JWPlayer and when I provide playback details to this SMIL file, I cannot get the video to play on the Desktop browsers. I only get an error: "Error loading stream: Could not connect to server.", whereas the videos works normally on Android/iPhone/iPad. I've also setup a crossdomain.xml file on my S3 bucket.

My SMIL file:

<meta base="rtmp://" />
<video src="0793-8-sequence-High.mp4" height="720" system-bitrate="2000000" width="1280" />
<video src="0793-8-sequence-Medium.mp4" height="480" system-bitrate="800000" width="854" />
<video src="0793-8-sequence-Low.mp4" height="240" system-bitrate="500000" width="428" />

I don't use the WOWZA server for RTMP streaming. Does S3 also have a RTMP streaming URL that I can use?

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Please provide a link. RTMP / SMIL should not work on mobile though, that doesn’t make sense, since RTMP is Flash only (on desktop).
