How to force embedded video to play in HQ RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have embedded these videos on our Sharepoint site.  They default to LO quality, how can I force them to play in SD, HD, or HQ?  I've tried every old YouTube html trick I could find, hoping for success.  What can I do?

    you can change the following param attribute.

    <param name="quality" value="high">

    but I can't determine what value "HD" is...

    .... anyway... that is controlled in an external script.. o12player.js and is hardwired (document.write)... I don't think there is a way for you to specify a different default quality.

    that script is dynamically loaded (in your head section)..

    <script src="http://hub.video.msn.com/hub/id?videoid=%3Cref%3E12457pxst%3C%2Fref%3Ecc273a71-558c-4e8e-b4c7-0be428df830a&amp;from=sharepermalink&amp;src=v5%3Ashare%3Asharepermalink%3A&amp;rt=script&amp;divid=VideoPlayerDiv0&amp;loadcss=true&amp;csid=ux-cms-en-us-msoffice&amp;pageurl=http%3A%2F%2Foffice.microsoft.com%2Fen-us%2Fsupport%2Fwork-with-email-HA104103989.aspx%3FvideoId%3Dcc273a71-558c-4e8e-b4c7-0be428df830a%26from%3Dsharepermalink%26src%3Dv5%253ashare%253asharepermalink%253a%252cv5%253ashare%253asharepermalink%253a%26src%3Dv5%3Ashare%3Asharepermalink%3A&amp;officecomcontainerref.width=400&amp;officecomplayerref.playeraspectratio=Wide16x9&amp;officecomplayerref.defaultvideo=videobyuuids.aspx%3Fuuids%3Dcc273a71-558c-4e8e-b4c7-0be428df830a&amp;officecomplayerref.playerchannel=MOD_OfficeCom&amp;officecomplayerref.playerlocation=_pl_en-us_VA104116668_VA104116668&amp;officecomplayerref.playbackmode=Inline&amp;hubid=SP_MOD_OfficeCom&amp;id=VideoPlayerDiv0_ux1_1_1_4&amp;callback=JsonpCb0"></script>

    it is in the above script src value that you would change the default quality parameter... but I do not see an obvious way of doing it.

  • Hi Muggleston,

    Your question would be best posted to a sharepoint forum or the youtube developer support forum.

    I would expect that youtube is using cookies to save user's preferences for video quality and default to Flash (because they use the flash cookies to track you). YT host video content within an iframe, and so probably sharepoint uses will not allow the iframe to access third-party cookies... You need to adjust the sandbox attribute of the iframe in your page, but that is beyond the scope of this forum.

    Include with your questions to the sharepoint or youtube forums your Embed source (as copied from the youtube host) and or your iframe markup.

    This forum is for questions about IEAK and GPO administration of IE on domain networks.

    Regards.

  • Thanks Rob!  Actually, the particular videos that I'm asking about are MSN hosted.  (Microsoft tutorials).  I should have clarified.  I only mentioned trying all the Youtube html snippets because the internet is saturation with them.  I don't even think Youtube supports many of those snippets anymore, much less MSN - which probably wouldn't have been fixed by them anyway. 

    I will move my question - the SharePoint forum is a great idea, and I'm sure the Youtube developers will know a think or two about hosted video quality, MSN or not.
