Why is this video playing in a low resolution?

BAFTA hosted videos use a process called ‘Adaptive Streaming’ where our player detects poor internet connection and slow speeds. If a video plays in low resolution in patches, or even throughout, it indicates such issues. You can manually override this, by changing the quality selector from ‘Auto’ to one of the highest options but if your connection issue persists this will likely cause buffering at some point.
