Changing the background color JWP7


We're JWPlayer 7.0.3 Premium user.
I started a project with jwp7. So far I did not run in any trouble, but then I wanted to change the background color of the player, without success.

I went through all threads regarding to this issue, but unfortunately I have not found any useable solution.

I made changes in jwplayer.js: I found #000000 color codes and changed them to #ffffff, but no luck.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Adding the small css snippet under my player code solves my problem.

background-color: #ffffff;

Hello Tibor,

I hope your current page is working great for you, I would like to also share this with you:

If you visit:

You will see this code block:
file: “/uploads/example.mp4”,
height: 360,
width: 640,
image: “/uploads/example.jpg”,
skin: {
name: “bekle”
active: “red”
inactive: “white”
background: “black”

OR you could build your skin in the Players section of your Dashboard.
