Video as section background issues

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Youtube works but the default quality is the lowest setting. Needs to be some way to force highest quality. Tried ?feature=player_detailpage&VQ=HD1080 but that didn't work. Doesn't appear to be any setting in YT to force this.

Vimeo better in Firefox, but in Chrome it just shows a static image. No video. No settings in vimeo (free) that I could find to fix this.

At this point I almost need a third party extension to get high quality video as a section background :(

Thanks for your query. Sorry the youtube video resolution is related to your internet speed. There is no default feature to control it.
And i found vimeo videos are working fine. Please check this screencast

-Best Regards

yeah the duck one worked fine for me too, suggesting it's the video itself. But it plays fine on vimeo and it's all default settings.

Can you check if this video plays on your demo install?

Don't worry about a screencast. If it doesn't it must be something wrong with the video itself.

If I may...
the video is OK, I used in Row as a video background, auto-play worked well.
