Based on my initial investigation, JPlayer is currently missing 2 key features as compared to JWPlayer - RTMP streaming and control of video scaling if the player and video are of different sizes.
RTMP streaming is straight forward - Google it if you need to. There's also an implementation waiting to be merged into JPlayer on Github that has been taking it's time to get into the main code base.
Video scaling is important when dealing with user supplied content where you don't know the video aspect ratio. On the other hand, you probably do know the size you want the player to be and likely also have an opinion on how you want the video to be presented within the player.
As far as skinning and MP3, I don't see anything to differentiate the two - you should have no problem with MP3s on either as well as complete control over the skin.
So today, the decision is more about a young, open source project versus a more mature, commercial project unless the points I mentioned above are relevant to you.
