Facebook styling

We're using a custom skin in our website, with an XML file, which has the following elements for the controlbar:

<component name="controlbar">
<setting name="margin" value="0" />
<setting name="fontcolor" value="e9e9e9" />
<setting name="fontsize" value="14" />
<setting name="fontweight" value="normal" />
<setting name='maxwidth' value='3000' />
<element name="playButton" src="playButton.png" />
<element name="pauseButton" src="pauseButton.png" />
<element name="fullscreenButton" src="fullscreenButton.png" />
<element name="normalscreenButton" src="normalscreenButton.png" />
<element name="background" src="background.png" />
<element name="capLeft" src="left.png" />
<element name="capRight" src="right.png" />

The skin looks great on our website, but using the same skin on Facebook has several issues - the 00:00 times and margins as seen in the picture:

Why does the styling differ on FB compared to our website? Is there a way we could style this to remove the 00:00 marks and margin?

When you use JW 5 on Facebook custom skinning, advertising, HLS streaming, API, analytics, and HTML5 Playback are not supported.

I've seen posts on this board talking about customisation of skins for Facebook. It also seems to be working, since the skin changes, but only up to a certain level?

As JW 5 is no longer supported, you may want to use to check out deprecated support articles that may help you configure the older version of our player.
