upgrade jwplayer 5.6 to 7 & compatibilty with olders skins


I use jwplayer 5.6 on my website "http: //gerard.marin/", and it works very well on the pages that concern the single videos (not Youtube) or the playlists xml.
I use a skin that I particularly like for its presentation.
The disadvantage is that I have a single web page "" that requires to play a playlist of my Youtube channel,
and until recently it worked well, but now it's impossible to load the playlist, and What I understood, I have first to upgrade to version 7.

Question : Will my skin be compatible with this version?

Here are some web pages where the playlist is in xml or unique files and with the skin in question :

For the web page "", I have already solicited a topic yesterday, to which I was answered here : " / customer / en / portal / issues / 17041040-task-tail-failed-at-step-5-playlist-could-not-be-loaded-due-to-crossdomain-policy-restricted? new = 17041040"

Will the code in place for drive 5.6 need to be replaced with new instructions, or will it still be compatible with version 7 ?
At least in its present aspect, failing other skins available ...

I would have more questions, but I would not overload, so I would formulate them afterwards!

Thank you .

Hi there. First of all, we love your custom skin. However I’m afraid that JW 7 uses a different skinning model, so there isn’t a direct upgrade path to make your JW 5 skin work with JW 7. Have you reviewed the updated skinning documentation?
