Which version of JW Player are you using? I just tested this on my 6.9 test server with a file named bunny_13.00_play.mp4 and it works for me without any errors. The period in the filename might be confusing how the player is trying to detect the file extension, so you might need to add this:

type: ‘mp4’

in your setup.

Please send me a link to your test page so I can investigate further.
