High Quality by default in videos embedded in frames


I'm embedding a jwplayer video in a frame in my web page.
It always loads the lowest quality, unless manually specified otherwise.
I'd like to set the highest possible quality to be the default when the video loads on any computer.

I went over previous similar questions -

I saw a recommendation to upgrade to premium to be able to use hls streaming. At the moment it's not a possibility for me, too expensive.

For free account, the suggestion was to create my own HD Quality Toggling according to:

which is a bit of a problem, as I'm constantly generating new signed links to a secure video.
I'm not even sure it's possible to get the links to all the different video qualities generated for each signed video at the moment it's signed, correct me if I'm wrong.

Isn't there something simple like setting "quality="1080p" in the frame link?

Why is such a simple thing so hard to do? Is it on purpose like that to encourage users to upgrade to premium?

You’d need to manually embed the player and use the API, you wouldn’t be able to do this with the single-line embed code.
