Use TechSmith Smart Player with Streaming Server Protocols (RTMP, RTSP, MPEG-DASH, MS Smooth, or HLS)?

The TechSmith Smart Player serving Camtasia MP4 videos has been working great for us using HTTP (HTTP progressive download).  We are migrating our MP4 videos to the Wowza streaming server, however, which does not support HTTP progressive.
We now need to use one of the protocols supported by Wowza.  The Wowza-supported protocols are RTMP, RTSP, MPEG-DASH, Micrososft Smooth Scrolling, and Apple HLS (https://www.wowza.com/forums/content.php?621-Understanding-streaming-protocols-and-output-file-forma....

We have been setting the media source in our player page like this.
TSC.playerConfiguration.addMediaSrc("http://OurURL/OurVideo.mp4");

Changing this line to an RTMP or RTSP URL does not work.  The same RTMP URL works fine using other players, such as JW Player.

Does the TechSmith Smart player support any of the Wowza server protocols?  If so, which one, and what do we need to do to use one of these protocols?

Thank you very much for any information you can provide.
