    Hello – the fullscreen video slider is blurry for the first few seconds. I thought this was the lag from the video needing to load from Youtube. However, if you let the video playout (1:08) – it is again blurry on the replay. For the exact same few seconds. This leads me to believe it is caused by something else. The youtube is uploaded in HD. Any ideas on how to remedy this? Thanks for all your assistance.

    I suppose it could be youtube auto-detection. Is there a way to force the play quality into HD?


    The setting whether a Youtube video plays in HD or not depends not only on the default but also on the playback of the device itself. So if Youtube “notices” that the transfer rate is not so stable, then there will be lower resolutions. Similar to TV streaming. If the WLAN does not participate, then the resolution goes down.

    In former times there are addenda to the url you can make autoplay etc. pp. vor HD files you could add : ?vq=hd720 or if it is not the first addendum with ampersand instead of questionmark: &vq=hd720 for 1080 same thing.


    So are they any alternatives? Does Vimeo perform better? Uploading directly to the media library?

    I added ?vq=hd1080, and there was no improvement.


    I went ahead and uploaded the video directly to the website. It is much more clear now however, it seems to buffer periodically.


    Please close this ticket. Thanks for your help.
