I have noted similar requests/issues posted previously

Can you incorporate settings height/width, align and auto play to be hidden from users. Ideally this would be permissions based to enable some granularity.

I assume the only way to achieve this at the moment is to override a theme function? (I have not looked into this as yet, in case there is a way I have overlooked).

I´m interested to solve this too. I think it's a capability reasonable for improve the module.
Hope somebody tell us how to take defaults and hide this fields (maybe programatically?).

Thanks in advance.

Well, finally I modified "video_filter_field.module" in order to hide these fields, but with content. I turn to "hidden" these type fields and assign my value. Hope you find this useful. It´s not for video_filter, it´s video_filter_field.

$element['height'] = array(
      '#type' => 'hidden',
      '#title' => t('Height'),
      '#default_value' => isset($items[$delta]['height']) ? 
                          $items[$delta]['height'] : 500,
      '#weight' => 1,
      ) + $base;
    $element['width'] = array(
      '#type' => 'hidden',
      '#title' => t('Width'),
      '#default_value' => isset($items[$delta]['width']) ? 
                          $items[$delta]['width'] : 500,
      '#weight' => 2,
    ) + $base;
    $element['autoplay'] = array(
      '#type' => 'hidden',
      '#title' => t('Autoplay'),
      '#default_value' => isset($items[$delta]['autoplay']) ? 
                          $items[$delta]['autoplay'] : FALSE,
      '#weight' => 3,

A HUGE +1 on this one. After installing and enabling this module, then setting defaults for those fields, I was surprised when they showed in the popup for embedding the video. I don't want my (inexperienced) users setting height/width and possibly breaking my theme. And I certainly don't want anyone to be able to set autoplay (something I absolutely loathe in other sites and refuse to allow in my sites).

And, since this topic already has references to hiding those fields, I'll add this here as well...

I tried using the themekey module to ensure that the popup window would be using my site's theme so that I could then use CSS to hide the fields in question. But no matter what I did, the popup always used my admin theme. Why is that? And how to fix it?

[Setting status to "MAJOR", because I think this is a MAJOR issue. The only work-around cited above is to hack the code - which is a Drupal no-no.]

Great suggestion! Please provide patches. I will look more into this for 8.x-1.x version and also I am willing to review and apply patches you provide for D7 version.
Please update this issue if you think this is still important for your projects.

What about using the 'Limited html filter' to change the appropriate options depending on what's configured?
