@wendymiller – I’ve actually managed to make a ton of progress and discovery along the way thanks to the inspiration about the background size.
I’ve been using CSS Sprite Generator linked from the instructional and have gotten to the point where all my buttons are the correct ones and in the location where I want them (with 2 exceptions).
I’m attaching my current progress and would welcome suggestions! I need to get the mute button to the left more, as it’s bleeding off the controller (even if I increase the width of the controls). I also noticed that I couldn’t get changes to the mejs-time, time-rail or subsequent spans to take if I used the custom class for the player.
I’m also hoping to add a replay or restart button that goes next to the play button – but for now, getting this up and running is huge.
