I’ve tried to add custom audio player skin to a title but when I preview it, it shows the default Lectora skin. I even downloaded the “Green Tea” skin from the community and tried using it and again on preview I see the default Lectora player skin. Does anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it?
I’m attaching a Lectora title and added the greentea.zip file to that folder as well.
Confirmed for video in 18.2.3: import the custom skin, there are no errors, and the appearance of the video is the standard player with no change. Tested locally in “Preview in browser” and on Reviewlink.
Thanks to <span class=”handle-sign”>@</span>tbrodowski6367 for the pointers to custom skins … if only they worked, they would solve my problem.
Edit: even if I edit one of the standard skins (I increased the size of the volume button), Lectora 18.2.3 ignores the skin entirely and shows the standard player. I honestly don’t know how you did that–the selected skin is displayed if you don’t edit the CSS, but if you do, the entire CSS file is ignored?

We updated the media player in v18.2 and it used different class names and some of the css sizing changed. So there has to be conversion done for any custom skins. The help is updated with the necessary instructions:
Joe, I copied the exact CSS from your linked help file to a file, search/replaced the file names to match my actual file names on the disk and … when imported, there are no errors, but it does not work. The player remains the default player, totally ignoring the custom skin. This is an actual bug.
Honestly, if you want to allow customizing the player and the reaction to some trivial error is to ignore the file entirely, you need to create a GUI skin editor instead of expecting users to debug undocumented text config files for you. I’m a Unix systems admin (and documentation writer) and I find this to be difficult. (It doesn’t help that the MediaElement.js documentation is atrocious.)
