Skins not changing

  • I’m trying to change the player skin but it’s only showing the default.

    I have tried creating a Custom Player from the JW Player>JW Player section. I have tried multiple skins from the list without any changes.

    I have also tried adding skin="/player/my-skin.zip" to the shortcode.

    Any other thoughts or things that I should try out?

    Do you have a link?

    Uh derp…sorry it was late. Or early depending on how you look at it.

    Let me get a test page re-published when I can (I’m at work and I can’t get to the site), and I’ll post a link.

    Sorry….busch league.

    Test Video Link

    I also noticed that it stopped working on my iPhone as of this morning, and I didn’t change anything when it was working last night.

    I see the skin fine here and it plays on an iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1 just fine.

    Okay I’m seeing the skin in most browsers now. This site has some old caching plugin and it’s been fussy.

    However, I (and my friend) cannot see the video on our iPhones. Mine is iPhone 4S v6.0.1. I’ve tried Safari and Chrome and cleared everything in both browsers. All I get is a blank content window. This is the same thing that was happening before I decided to try the plugin. I hard-coded everything and it worked once and then never again.

    I know that it worked once last night.

    Any thoughts, ideas, troubleshooting methods are appreciated.

    I would try to link to this file to test, it could have to do with your video encoding – http://www.longtailvideo.com/jw/upload/bunny.mp4
