With Vidyard, it's easy to embed your player in multiple locations. However, not all embed locations are the same. In some cases, you may want to adjust the settings of a certain player in a particular embed location such as a mobile version of your website, or in a sidebar.
You can do this on the fly by making use of the following query strings in your Vidyard embed code.
|width||Integer (in pixels)||Overrides the width of the player.|
|height||Integer (in pixels)||Overrides the height of the player.|
|name_overlay||0 or 1||Overlays the name of the player on the player during playback.|
|disable_ctas||0 or 1||A value of 1 prevents popout calls to action from loading when the player loads.|
|hide_playlist||1||A value of 1 removes the playlist icon on the player. The playlist still exists, but can not be accessed.|
|hidden_controls||0 or 1||A value of 1 hides the player controls from viewers. Player controls include the time slider, play/pause button, quality settings, volume slider, and expand option.|
|hide_html5_playlist||0 or 1||A value of 1 prevents the playlist from appearing on the HTML5 fallback player.|
|viral_sharing||0 or 1||A value of 0 removes the social networks sharing button from the player.|

To use a query string, append it to the URL specified in the embed code. For example:
The above code uses the width and height parameters to override the player settings in the Vidyard dashboard.
The use of query strings is not limited to embed codes, you can also use them for sharing page links.
The above code uses the autoplay parameter to start the player on page load.
Note: The first query string after a URL must begin with a "?" while any subsequent strings should be added using the "&" character
Using query strings with the responsive embed code
The above query strings also work with Vidyard's responsive embed code.
Simply add "
data-"and then the parameter and a value to the embed code in order to append a query string. For example:
