    I purchased the $99 bundle primarily for VideoPress but I’m not very happy with it.

    How do I make every video I upload to VideoPress play in HD all the time, even if it’s physical dimensions are quite small.

    My site needs to be able to present screencasts of software development demonstrations so it’s important that the text in the videos is very readable.

    I’ve tried the method the help suggests of adding a width greater than 1280 to the shortcode such as [wpvideo blahblah w=1281] but that does nothing.

    The blog I need help with is members.adug.org.au.

    Here’s a list that provides the maximum displayed image widths by theme.

    Thanks timethief. I note there aren’t any themes listed that will allow the width to be increased to 1280.

    If that’s the case it’s looking like there is no way to force all videos to play in HD. Would you agree?

    If you’re just relying upon playback within the theme container then there won’t be any that support a width of 1280 pixels. However, if the video is made fullscreen then HD playback should be possible.
