Transparent background

May 11, 2012

Is there any way to set the background of the player to transparent so that the background image of the html page shows through?

Hi Dave - Unfortunately, you can't set the page bg to transparent - this would be a nice feature to have. It would really open up a lot of design possibilities.

Actually you can, I just figured it out, you need to edit the html:

var g_stfMode = "transparent";

var g_atrBgColor = "";

I did also set the html background colour in Storyboard to 100% transparent as well.

Hi Kieran,

No apologies necessary, we're still here. 🙂

With the modern player you can select a dark or light theme, then choose an accent color from the color selector (the default accent color choices come from your theme colors).

You can also quickly turn off all player features for a chromeless look by flipping a switch. See this link for more details.
There isn't a change to allow for a transparent player setting yet, but if you'd like to share some more detail on how this would help your course I can pass along to our product team as a feature request!
