The GoNoodle Video Player

All videos in GoNoodle (excluding YouTube content) stream via Brightcove, our integrated video hosting and player service. Brightcove is an industry leader in video delivery, with a focus on delivering high quality video with minimal buffering across a wide range of supported technologies.

About the Video Player

The GoNoodle video player (provided by Brightcove) automatically serves the highest quality video based on your available bandwidth. Our player prioritizes immediate, smooth playback with little-to-no buffering, and will adjust the quality you see to provide this.

Video Quality

When you play a video in the GoNoodle video player, the player begins with a lower-quality rendition of the video to give you immediate playback. In the first few seconds of playback, the player also assesses your available bandwidth. It then automatically selects an optimal video rendition based on your current bandwidth. 

Throughout playback, the video player repeatedly checks your bandwidth and adjusts your video quality accordingly. You may see changes in quality during video playback if your bandwidth fluctuates.

Note: if your video quality is consistently grainy, your bandwidth is likely low; this can be due to a slow internet speed or a high-traffic network. See  Troubleshooting the Videos.
