set standard resolution

The movies start playing in the lowest resolution (180p) until you switch to a higher resolution. It is possible to set the standard resolution to 720p?

Hi there,

As with a lot of adaptive streaming formats, playback begins at the lowest quality in order to be able to play the stream quicker, especially for viewers on mobile devices and/or lower quality connections. The player will usually adapt to a higher quality within 8-10 seconds of playback.

As for configuring a default resolution of 720p, you can choose to manually set the playback quality via the .setCurrentQuality() method in our JavaScript API but this is not recommend as your stream will lose its ability to automatically adapt its quality and could lead to a poor experience on mobile devices or for those viewers with lower quality connections.

Please let me know if you need any more help or have any other questions.

Thank you!

Thanks for your help!
We will use the .setCurrentQuality() method after checking the browser width.
