Hey there, i tryed to let the Transcoder transcoding in better Quality (1080p).
So i use this options for example:

# vp8enc options
self.destination_dimensions = kwargs.get('dimensions', (1080, 1080))
self.vp8_quality = kwargs.get('vp8_quality', 10) the

After assetlink and dbupdate, there has nothing changed.
I think the handling of videos on "Media"goblin is a big problem.
You cant enjoy Videos in that damn bad quality!

So i think, okey lets transcode to webm Files on the Client PCs before uploading - no, you can forget it!
The Player Interface is a bad Joke on untranscoded Files!
Here an Example of 1080p WebM:

I understand, that the Player dont let you switch in Resolutions.
But damned, so let us please configure in which Quality Videos can uploaded by users...

Setting the quality in a config file might be an easy work around, but I think the proper solution would be to add something like DASH (GStreamer supports it). In this way the user loads a video, Mediagoblin encodes it in webm format in different bitrates and resolutions. However this would require the player to implement DASH too.

This is an enhancement, and given that we're feature-frozen, not targeted to 0.9
