Then you probably need to add a line similar to

  <script type="text/javascript" src="/jwplayer/jwplayer.js"></script>

depending on the path.  If you want to keep it in the root, which I don't recommend, you can use the following
 
  <script type="text/javascript" src="/jwplayer.js"></script>

This line should probably go in the head section.  

Typically, when you use a js library, there are three steps.
1. download the libraries, objects, etc.
2. create appropriate links/imports (that's what i am talking about above)
3. use the appropriate functions in your code.

If you think the problem is something else, please post the html code.

1. what browser(s) are you testing on?
2. Did you download and link the corresponding libraries according to http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/15995/jw-embedder-reference-guide#quickembed?

This should be all there is to it.

The only think I copied into the website root is the

jwplayer.js

player.swf

and swfobject.js

all is in the root
