How to create a skin for JW Player

skin-shotBelow you can see the skin elements of of the control bar.  As you can see, they consist of small images which you can easily change. The best way to start a skin is by copying an existing one. In the installation zip ( is a folder called: skins and in that folder is a  sub folder called Beelden.  I used that one as a basis for Polished Metal, included in this module.



  1. capLeft
  2. playButton/pauseButton
  3. divider
  4. timeSliderProgress
  5. timeSliderThumb
  6. timeSliderBuffer
  7. fullscreenButton/normalscreenButton
  8. muteButton/unmuteButton
  9. volumeSlider (Rail, Buffer, Progress)
  10. capRight

All it takes is to open all those images in an image editor and adapt it to your own design.

Just keep the names as they are and you will be fine.

"I'd like to share our wonderful experience with S3Media Stream.
We've tried a couple of different extensions in the past, including a product for which we paid money, but simply didn't work. We never received any support either -- our emails went completely ignored.

Fortunately, after some more searching, we came across S3Media Stream. Not only was this extension much more robust and easier to work with, but the support that we received from Rudolf is extraordinary.

Being skeptical about product claims, we had many pre-sale questions that Rudolf answered very quickly and professionally. After we purchased the product, Rudolf patiently guided us, via Skype, through all the steps to customize our setup.

This level of service and professionalism is not something you get to experience from many companies. It's refreshing and much appreciated!"

I've been searching for a long time for a solution that will allow me to stream videos with Amazon cloud by using Joomla CMS.
Integrating such a solution requires deep understanding of security settings and is not as staright-forward as a simple embedding.

Luckily, I found Joomla21Century and developer Rudolf who gave me a step by step guidance, including intervention on my own server. I was never alone in the process. Quick and detailed responses, diving into the smallest details are the main advantage of Rudolf, along with a great, reliable component which I highly recommend.

"I can only say that in the middle of tens of thousands of software developers selling their wares on the web, it's very refreshing to come across the team at Joomla 21 Century. Their products under the S3Media banner are very versatile and professionally packaged components for integrating S3 based media into your site.
I have been in the media industry for over thirty years and have worked with hundreds of different companies... but the service I have received from these guys is absolutely excellent!"

"There are a handful of extensions in the Joomla universe that dramatically increase the power and possibilities of this tremendous CMS.
S3Media Pro is one of those extensions. An incredible tool with equally incredible support."

"Once you get the hang of it, this plugin is just awesome. And I really love the suggestions in the articles.
What an idea to use watermarks for affiliate products!"
