  • Resolved aurelz


    Hi Guys,

    I want to use the new dark theme from YT, this can only be achieved if I use the iFrame option, however when videos are played back from iFrame it only plays back in 360 and not 720p.

    With iFrame option disabled, it will playback in 720p, but using the old silver play bar theme.

    Does anyone have this issue or can anyone help? Thanks.

  • The tag on my page seems to be correct as well, as you can see that “hd=1” option is on:

    <iframe title=”YouTube video player” class=”youtube-player” type=”text/html” width=”560″ height=”340″ src=”″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Ok so after more digging I found this on the YT info page:

    “Note: The AS3 player will automatically play the version of the video that is appropriate for your player’s size. If an HD version of a video is available in the AS3 player and that is the appropriate version for your player, then that is the version that will play.”

    I can confirm this by making the playback res by 1280×720, and it does in fact playback in 720p automatically.

    Question now is how can I force it to playback in 720p in a height lessen than 720px…

    Any suggestions are welcome.


    And I have solved my own question. This thread answers it for me.
    basically there is just no way to force HD playback from AS3 player if your px is less than 720.

    Posting for anyone else that is trying to figure this out…
