SKIN SIX "Skin not a valid file type"

Hi there,

i want to use the skin "SIX", but its not possible. I get an error: "Skin not a valid file type".

The reason is:
In jwplayer.js (6.12.4956) is a code-part, which checks the skins by premium:^(beelden|bekle|five|glow|modieus|roundster|stormtrooper|vapor)$/i

Here is missing the skin "six".

Is there a reason or is this a bug?

SORRY ... you can close this. I didnt realize, that "SIX" is the default. So i dont need to try to load "SIX" as skin ;)

But still you should change your JS-Fragment to check the available skins. You should add also SIX there ;)

I would say - based on the documentation - this is a bug.

However, "six" is the default (built-in) skin and so if you leave it blank you will get "six".

For your specific implementation therefore you just need to rewrite the skin value in "initJson()" to an empty string if the passed in value is "six".
