Suggest me the encoding configurations for a video for 480p,720p,1080p, which will play in JW player smoothly
For live and on demand one can find the encoding recommendations in the Akamai user guides. These guides go over the basics like GOP frequency, aligned I-frames, encoder CPU overhead but I think your looking for something more like specifics.
I like the concept of the "Bits Per Pixel" when considering encoding configuraitons.
Its covered well here:

Then its also about selecting the correct settings based on the target devices. Apple has some very specific recommendations for their devices over Technical Note TN2224: Best Practices for Creating and Deploying HTTP Live Streaming Media for the iPhone and iPad
You should also considering the target markets internet penetration. No use sending a 500k stream to a 3G connection.
