Query String Parameters in Player V3 (Deprecated)

Modify the player with query string parameters.

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 types of query parameters to the http://player.ooyala.com/v3/.. .. <script> tag. These query string parameters include the following:
Parameter Description
namespace=(uniqueJavaScriptID) Use the namespace parameter to place multiple independent copies of a player on a page. See details in Renaming the Default Namespace.
platform=( flash-only | flash | html5-fallback | html5-priority ) Use the platform parameter to control the selection mechanism between Flash and HTML5 playback. See details in Setting the Default Video Platform with a Parameter in Player V3 (Deprecated).
tweaks=android-enable-hls Use the tweaks parameter to enable HLS on your Android devices for the web. Although you can use this parameter to enable HLS on Android devices, certain limitations exist for HLS playback on 2.x and 4.x devices. For more information about operability on Android devices, see "Enabling HLS on Android Web."
Note: As the use of the tweaks parameter can involve native playback issues, we cannot guarantee optimal playback experience on every Android device and OS version.


Note: The legacy Player API had query string parameters for passing tags of ad server and ad networks to the Ooyala player. For Player V3, the supported ad servers/networks and the mechanisim for passing related tags is detailed in Player V3 Embedded Parameters for Ads (Deprecated).
