Set default quality on embedded video from Commons

We’re trying to embed a few videos from Commons on our Wordpress site but are currently struggling with the default quality being set to low (180p). Are there any urlparameters that can be passed to set the default video quality? (Currently using https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Implementing_the_2030_Agenda_.webm?embedplayer=yes via iframe)

Looking at the thumbnail parameter logic and the iframe logic, I’d guess it’s not possible.

FWIW, T100106 will probably change the logic for quality selection (whenever it lands; it might not be soon).
