Video Player Themes – Add Custom Skins and Change Player Controls
With WordPress version 1.23 onwards we provide our users with an additional range of colorful video player themes, with customizable player skins.
While interface for player customization at thePlayer.io is currently in alpha stage, our design team have made put out a large number of themes. Because our broadest use case is WordPress, we have added an interface so that you can select the theme of your choice from the WordPress settings page for VdoCipher. If you are using other means to embed the video to your website you can edit the video embed code directly to include the player theme.
Note: If you change the player color using the code in the blog Change Player Color using CSS please note that you’ll have to keep using the default player theme
9ae8bbe8dd964ddc9bdb932cca1cb59a for the CSS to be valid.
Please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to make additional customizations.
Steps to add Custom player themes
- Click the VdoCipher menu button on the Dashboard
- On the player themes row click on Select player theme, which would take you to a new menu page from which to select the video player theme
- Select the player theme that you like best, and click on Save Changes
- Click on Return to Settings Page to configure the remaining settings, or go back to the dashboard
Choose from your custom themes
Add different themes for different videos
When setting the video player theme from the Settings page the selected player theme applies to all videos on your website. You can also choose to make certain of your videos look differently from the globally set theme. You can do so via the
vdo_theme="player_theme_id" attribute in the shortcode. A sample shortcode using player theme ID ‘e2dbde7971d145cd9a3bc0271b75b0a5’ is
[vdo id='123456789' vdo_theme='e2dbde7971d145cd9a3bc0271b75b0a5']
More Coming Soon
