How to Change the Quality of an Embedded Video

If you are using Vimeo or Wistia to host your videos, you can change the quality of the embedded video by adding a simple line of code to AccessAlly Pro’s video shortcode.

Please note that this will not work with videos hosted on YouTube or Amazon S3.

How to Change the Quality of a Video

Vimeo

Press here to reveal

Step 1: Add Shortcode to Page

After adding the video to the page using the shortcode adder, the shortcode should look something like this:

[progressally_vimeo_video id='XXX' vimeo_id='123' width='600' height='350']

Step 2: Add the video quality parameters to the shortcode

To change the quality of the video, add the following code (marked with bold):

[progressally_vimeo_video id='XXX' vimeo_id='123' width='600' height='350' additional_args="quality=360p"]

Please note that “360p” can be any of the following values:

  • 4K
  • 2K
  • 1080p
  • 720p
  • 540p
  • 360p

Wistia

Step 1: Add Shortcode to Page

After adding the video to the page using the shortcode adder, the shortcode should look something like this:

[progressally_wistia_video id='XXX' wistia_id='123' width='600' height='350']

Step 2: Add the video quality parameters to the shortcode

To change the quality of the video, the following code (marked with bold):

[progressally_wistia_video id='XXX' wistia_id='123' width='600' height='350' additional_args="qualityMax=224&qualityMin=224"]

Please note that “224” can be any of the following values:

  • 224
  • 360
  • 540
  • 720
  • 1080
  • 3840

YouTube or Amazon S3

Please note, once again, that if you are using YouTube or Amazon S3 to host your videos, the video quality is auto (ie. decided by the embedded player size).
