Configuration for default video quality
|Reported by:||TmCTux||Owned by:|
with 0.10 version, a nice enhancement for video quality selection. 3 level are available by default (360, 480 and 720p), is there any configuration to generate only some of them and what matter more for me is could we force a default quality for the user, actually it's the lowest by default, which poorly show quality works for people not knowing how to change the quality...
thanks a lot again,

looks like indeed to what I was looking for, but I can't make it working.
I'm putting those in the mediagoblin_local.ini files, maybe I'm not putting it in the right section (I've tried several) but I either can't restart the server (paste service fail on config files) or it has no impact (I was expected for the default resolution that it will be the one selected by default when you play a video).
thanks again for replying

so I had a look in the code, I believe those conf should go under the part
but "available_resolutions" raises a syntax error and default_resolution (if put alone to be able to launch the server) has no effect as stated earlier.
Indeed, when looking into "mediagoblin/media_types/video/config_spec.ini", I can see that default_resolution is already set by default at 480p (I wanted 720p but still) and default resolution is always 360p when accessing a video on the site.
Maybe I don't get what this default settings do but it doesn't seem to work as intended.

TmCTux, I've just tested these settings and similarly found that the
default_resolution doesn't seem to work. Also I'd given you the wrong form at for the
available_resolutions. Here's my config:
[[mediagoblin.media_types.video]] available_resolutions = 144p,240p default_resolution = 240p
With this config I correctly got 144p and 240p transcoded, but the 144p video was displayed by default in the player.
