UI Skinning



As a kickstart option, this Add-On adds simple UI skinning features to effortlessly get the look and feel that fits common customisation needs. As an alternative, THEOplayer’s ‘chromeless’ approach provides full control over the THEOplayer UI. Leveraging the players rich API, in applications where UI customisation needs to go beyond what is supported by this Add-On.

With this Add-On you will have the means not only of changing colours of the UI, but also:

  • Customising initial start playback button.
  • Changing how a video should be fit inside a container (e.g. supporting ‘responsive’ web designs)
  • Adding custom control buttons to the video control bar
  • Customising and removing elements (like buttons or menu items) from the UI
  • Changing the position where the timeline is displayed
  • Implementing keyboard hotkeys, and
  • Adding support to other languages.
