JW Player Pro Skins Redesigned

JW Player Skins Redesign 2013

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.

The Future

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.

      With Video such a mainstream part of our daily lives now, it is refreshing to see that JWPlayer continues to lead in this field and that they stay abreast of the continuing changes with New Features to their product. JWPlayer has evolved over the years from a small boutique player in the Video realm to a Grown Up and Leader in the market.

      I can say that, having been a long time user – fan of JW Player. It is really neat to see the enhancements and growth this firm has taken especially over the last 2 years.

      Look forward to seeing what you do in 2014 and beyond.

      Would you consider to add the PSD(?) source files of the default player to the skinning documentation? I’d like to experiment with some simple color changes so it will match the site more, but creating all the files from scratch holds me back. Or maybe you can make it an option for licensed players only?

      Khalid, the PSD files are pretty huge, but please reach out to our support@, so we can send you the PSD of the skin you want to color-tweak.
