No HD out of the Gate with Fast Internet Connections

Has anyone found a way to force HD quality streaming out of the gate rather than waiting for JWP to automatically throttle up to HD? The problem I am having is a have playlist with several short segment videos. Once JWP has videos streaming in HD they are almost over.

You could potentially override this setting via our API and if you are potentially using adaptive streaming set the quality back to Adaptive/Auto:

jwplayer().on(‘firstFrame’,function() {jwplayer().setCurrentQuality(2);document.getElementById(‘output’).innerHTML=‘Quality set to high.’;});

setTimeout(function(){ jwplayer().setCurrentQuality(0);document.getElementById(‘output’).innerHTML=‘Quality set to adaptive.’;}, 5000);

Let me know how this works for you. You can tailor this and simply remove the document writes as well.
