When a video is uploaded to Moxion, we default to creating up to six transcoded resolutions if 4K has been enabled:
If you'd like to restrict the viewing options to one or more specific resolutions, you can do so from the Folder's Settings.
Having multiple resolutions available allows for better flexibility in situations where bandwidth may be an issue, while still letting you choose to make only the best quality your preference.
Users can access the allowed playback resolutions from the Settings Gear in the Transport Controls.
Our player will remember your preferred resolution after being selected, so that all subsequent Assets will playback at that resolution if it's available.
If that particular resolution isn't available, then the player will only display and playback in the available resolutions. This might be the case if a Folder has been chosen to contain only high quality assets for specific members of the production.
When Auto is selected Moxion will play the most applicable resolution from the available options based on your internet connection speed.
With 1080, 720 and 480 streams available and a good internet connection, Moxion will default to 1080p. If the connection drops at any time, we'll select and play a more applicable resolution - 720p or 480p - and bump it back up to 1080p when connectivity improves. This way you've got a playable resolution to fit whatever condition you find yourself viewing in.
