Today, we are proud to announce the freshly redesigned JW Player Pro Skins.
JW Player has always offered customers the ability to create unique player skins, while also including more packaged skins than any other video player. These skins are used by many websites as an out-of-the-box solution for customers looking to showcase video. In the past, packaged skins were only offered as a Premium feature, but as of earlier this year, were made available to JW Pro customers.
Each skin is updated to fit the diverse needs of today’s content-creators and web designers. Visual elements are stripped of unnecessary effects in favor of a simpler, frictionless user experience. Bekle, Beelden, Five, Glow, Roundster, Six, Stormtrooper, Vapor all retain their original name but are reimagined to provide a variety of fresh styles and striking color schemes.
Although this is an exciting next step in the evolution of JW Player skins, the future will bring many more substantial advances to the customization of our Pro skins. We see color customization as an important feature and are working hard to provide our customers more ways to closely connect their brands with the JW Player. Another important advancement is the option to choose either a fluid or fixed width control bar within the same skin. These are just a few examples of the many advances we work on everyday here at JW Player. If you have any opinions or ideas about the JW Player skins, please add a comment to our discussion.
The JW Player Pro Skins will go live for users in January 2014. To try the new skins out today, log in to your JW Player account and download them from the account settings page.
