How can I setup to the lowest quality available when playing my video?

Im using the api this way:

<script src="//"> </script>
<script> var playerInstance = jwplayer("jwreban");
playlist: "//",
width: "100%",
aspectratio: "1:1"
function shufflePlaylist(playlist) {
var currentIndex = playlist.length, tempValue, randomIndex;
while (0 !== currentIndex) {
randomIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * playlist.length);
currentIndex -= 1;
tempValue = playlist[currentIndex];
playlist[currentIndex] = playlist[randomIndex];
playlist[randomIndex] = tempValue;
return playlist;
playerInstance.on("ready", function() {
var playlistObj = playerInstance.getPlaylist();
jwplayer().onReady(function(event) {
jwplayer().onQualityLevels(function(event) {

How can i set the script when the video is played to be the lowest quality to save bandwidth?

You are able to simple add:


after you close your player setup function, and this will change your quality to the lowest available when a new video is loaded.
