Choosing stream quality on Chrome for Android

I uploaded a video on JWPlayer hosting and used the HTML5 JWPlayer to test streaming on both Chrome for Desktop and Chrome for Android. Whilst the Desktop version allows the user to select/force the video quality, the mobile version of the JWPlayer does not have this option. The player UI simply does not have the selector to change say from 720p to 360p. Am I missing something or the mobile version is missing this option? Thanks.

Hello Keith,

Reason for that is because we pass the video to the browser and it handles quality switching. There’s no way to override this behavior.
