Exceeding max length of 5KB

Why it appears 2 times the same bitrate when there are 2 different

Hello there,
We use the jwplayer with Akamai.
I made a test page for reading m3u8 videos and F4M:

In test 2 "2: without Akamai Provider:,_1500K,_500K,.mp4.csmil/master.m3u8" :
We test a m3u8 with 2 different bitrates.
But when you click on the "HD" button 2 times we see the same stream: 540p instead of 588KB and 1151kb.

How can we fix this?

thank you

Your example of the Akamai provider does not even run the video, it just is a replay icon immediately. This is because the Akamai provider is for HDS, not HLS.

It is doubled because your resolution is the same for both:

Ok, thank's,
Can you explain why in Example 2 (m3u8) HD button displays the image resolution and in Example 3 (F4M) HD button displays the choice of bitrates ?

That I am not sure of, since the player does not support F4M natively, that is through a custom plugin.
