Is this the correct shortcode for RTMP with HTML5 fallback in JW Player for Wordpress Plugin?

I've been manually hand coding and using a self hosted version of JW Player for years using RTMP with Cloudfront with HTML5 fallback (also running from an S3 bucket with Cloudfront).

I needed something a little more user friendly for my wife so I installed the Wordpress plugin.

It gives options as a primary source, whether to use Flash or HTML5.

If I select HTML5 as the primary source in the plugin and then edit the shortcode to select RTMP as primary, does that achieve RTMP with HTML5 fallback?

[jwplayer mediaid="22" primary="rtmp"]

Is that correct?

And this brings up another question, how do you use HLS with the plugin as it indicates it doesn't support that file type in the Media Uploader?

I specifically upgraded to Premium for HLS capabilities.

If you are using premium, why not use HLS for both desktop and mobile, and don’t bother with RTMP at all?
