Embedded Parameters in Player V3 (Deprecated)

Embedded parameters are contained in the body of the DIV container.

Important: Ooyala Player V3 is deprecated and is scheduled to be disabled on 2018-01-31. After that date, Player V3 will no longer play your video or audio content. Customers still using Player V3 need to migrate to Player V4 (see Migrating from Player V3 and Player Migration FAQ).
You add these parameters to the player embed code within the DIV container. These parameters include CSS styling such as width and height and ad service tags as passthrough parameters to the Ooyala Player for advanced ad tracking and targeting. The embedded parameters include the following. This is only a partial list. For a complete list, see Player V3 Query String Parameters (Deprecated).
