Setting Default Stream Quality.

I am trying to set what the default stream quality is for my videos and I am having trouble. I would ideally like the default stream to be set at 720P

I have gone through but cannot see how this applies to embed code which I was given for my video. <script src="//****.js"></script>

Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Gavin,

One of the options you have is to use this end-point

To delete the lower conversions of the video, however this could increase your account’s streaming and would increase buffer time on your client’s devices.

Have you tested our 7.8 BETA player? It has some optimizations for upshifting HLS qualities.

Thank you so much for your reply. I am still a little lost through. Where do I enter this information to delete?

It would not be my preference to delete rather just change the default stream to something higher. Also where can I choose which version of the player I use.

Thanks again

Regarding the link below:

You would really need a developer to handle those API calls, there’s no analog that’s available through the dashboard.

As far as changing your player to the Beta player, you can follow these steps :
Login to your Dashboard > Players > Manage > Select your player > Advanced > Release Channel > Beta
