Using the dark or light skin

This page shows you how to apply skins to afterglow

If you need the player controls to have a background (or maybe you just don't like the default skin), there is an easy way to use a dark and a light skin. Use the [`data-skin` parameter](doc:player-setup) to select one of them. [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "<!DOCTYPE html>\n<html>\n <head>\n <title>afterglow player</title>\n <script src=\"//cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/afterglowplayer@1.x\"></script>\n </head>\n <body>\n <video class=\"afterglow\" id=\"myvideo\" width=\"1280\" height=\"720\" data-skin=\"light\">\n \t<source type=\"video/mp4\" src=\"/path/to/myvideo.mp4\" />\n </video>\n </body>\n<html>", "language": "html" } ] } [/block] Currently, "light" and "dark" theme are supported. This is what a basic example using the light skin could look like (for the purposes of this demo, we use [responsive scaling](doc:responsive-scaling)): [block:html] { "html": "<video id=\"myvideo\" class=\"afterglow\" width=\"1280\" height=\"719\" data-autoresize=\"fit\" poster=\"http://afterglowplayer.com/sandbox/v1/poster.jpg\" style=\"margin: 0 auto;\" data-skin=\"light\">\n <source src=\"http://afterglowplayer.com/sandbox/v1/afterglow_local_hd.mp4\" type=\"video/mp4\" />\n</video>" } [/block] [block:callout] { "type": "info", "title": "Read more about player parameters", "body": "If you want to learn more about the player parameters that are available, you should take a look at the [player parameters section](doc:player-parameters)." } [/block]
