Similar problem, but with a publicly available clip.
Have default AMI setup, and calling JWPlayer as follows:
, 'id': 'playerID'
, 'width' : '720'
, 'height' : '406'
, 'file' : 'mp4:amazons3/wowzamediacache/sample/sample.mp4'
, 'streamer': 'rtmp://126.96.36.199/vods3'
, 'provider': 'rtmp'
Am getting "Stream not found: mp4:amazons3/wowzamediacache/sample/sample.mp4"
Have tried with and without the provider line, with and without the port, with and without a .flv extension, and with and without the /_definst_/ suffix.
Have tried multiple clips, no luck with any.
Have tried streaming using vod (instead of vods3), it works fine.
What am I missing?

Some problems that can cause the vods3 not to work, from reading up, are:
1. The bucket not being the default (s3.amazonaws.com). This is fixibale in the latest versions of Wowza by setting some config file.
2. Spaces in the file name
3. Periods or other special characters in the file name (untested, I have seen some saying it's an issue, some saying it is not).
However, the big issue - and this will affect everyone, so pay atention is that you must have a doubleslash after the word amazons3 in the path:
This is not in any of the documentation, and I could not get a response from pleas to support or the forums - fortunately, realized from reading this.
Wowza crew, you may blame this on JWPlayer, but please add this to your docs.
I couldn't get the to work in FlowPlayer either, and the Amazon AMI doesn't appear to have a example player built in.
'file' : 'mp4:amazons3//wowzamediacache/sample/sample.mp4' - right
'file' : 'mp4:amazons3/wowzamediacache/sample/sample.mp4' - wrong
