    Hello everyone, I have a small question, and your assistance with it would be greatly appreciated.

    Does anyone know how could I possibly add a Youtube video in HD to the header section? From what I’ve noticed the default resolution is either 360p or 480p, which makes my video look pixelated and overall unappealing. It also does not change according to your internet connection like it does on Youtube.

    Is there a way I could embed the video as a default HD into the header through perhaps a similar way as using links like these http://www.youtube.com/embed/V1234567?vq=hd1080, or any other way for that matter? By the way, that type of link with the embed is not valid according to the customizer, and also my video is 1920×689, just like the requirements stated.

    Thank you!

    @mihnea-dublesiu: To make HD Videos display in the header section. When you copy the video URL link from youtube you need to make sure the quality is set to HD or the highest possible. The same quality set on the youtube will be displayed on your site as well.

    Let me know if this helps you out!

    @skandha Unfortunately it does not work. I have tried it in all the ways I could think of. Refreshed the page, used the url from the url bar and the one you get from right-clicking on the video and even installed an extension for chrome that allows you to play all Youtube videos in HD right away. The website still displays the video in a lower quality.

    Do you have any other suggestions?

    @mihnea-dublesiu: I don’t think this is a theme related issue as the quality of video displayed is not controlled by the theme. I think the quality of video depends on bandwidth of the internet the user is using like in youtube.

    Let me know if this helps you out!
