Options

autoLabel :string

Default: 'Auto'

This option lets you rename the string value that represents the auto bitrate selection system.

var player = videojs('my-video');
player.maxQualitySelector({
  'autoLabel': 'ABR' // Change the label from 'Auto' (default) to 'ABR'.
});

defaultQuality :number

This option lets you control which level of quality is selected first.

0 = Default Behaviour (The default from playlist), 1 = Lowest (Start the video with the lowest quality stream selected), 2 = Highest (Start the video with the highest quality stream selected)

Default: 0

var player = videojs('my-video');
player.maxQualitySelector({
  'defaultQuality': 2 // Make the video start playing at the highest quality possible
});

disableAuto :boolean

This option disables the auto bitrate selection system and focuses on a single quality level.

Default: false

var player = videojs('my-video');
player.maxQualitySelector({
  'disableAuto': true // Turn off the auto bitrate selection system
});

displayMode :number

This option lets you control how the default quality level is displayed to the screen.

Note: This option is ignored if you override the quality level with a label in DefaultOptions.labels

Default: 0

var player = videojs('my-video');

});

filterDuplicateHeights :boolean

This option enabled the filtering of duplicate quality levels when their width, height, bitrate all match.

Tip: This is useful if you want to avoid showing different endpoints to users.

  'filterDuplicates': false // Turn off filtering of duplicate quality levels
});

index :number

Default: -1

var labelsArray = [ 'High', 'Low' ];

var labelsObject =  { 0: 'High', 8: 'Medium', 16: 'Low', 24: 'Super Low' };

Usage

⚠ Warning: ⚠ We require the https://github.com/videojs/videojs-contrib-quality-levels plugin to be included before ours.

To include videojs-max-quality-selector on your website or web application, use any of the following methods.

<link> & <script> Tag

This is the simplest case. Get the script in whatever way you prefer and include the plugin after you include [video.js][videojs], so that the videojs global is available.

<link src="//path/to/videojs-max-quality-selector.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="//path/to/video.min.js"></script>
<script src="//path/to/videojs-contrib-quality-levels.min.js"></script>
<script src="//path/to/videojs-max-quality-selector.min.js"></script>
<script>
  var player = videojs('my-video');
 
  player.maxQualitySelector();
</script> 

Browserify/CommonJS

When using with Browserify, install videojs-max-quality-selector via npm and require the plugin as you would any other module.

var videojs = require('video.js');
 
// The actual plugin function is exported by this module, but it is also
// attached to the `Player.prototype`; so, there is no need to assign it
// to a variable.
require('videojs-contrib-quality-levels');
require('videojs-max-quality-selector');
 
var player = videojs('my-video');
 
player.maxQualitySelector();

RequireJS/AMD

When using with RequireJS (or another AMD library), get the script in whatever way you prefer and require the plugin as you normally would:

require(['video.js', 'videojs-contrib-quality-levels', 'videojs-max-quality-selector'], function(videojs) {
  var player = videojs('my-video');
 
  player.maxQualitySelector();
});
