That's not the one you need.  We distribute our own JW Player zip package
which includes a plugin to allow HLS playback.  The current player
doesn't support HLS without the plugin which is not in the standard
packaged distributed by LongTail Video.  We requested and received their
permission to create the one-click download button in the mythbackend
webserver as well as to distribute our own packaged player including the
required HLS plugin.

The .zip you want is located at:
