Try Skinning Your Video

Posted by on Mar 21, 2007 in Feature Updates | 5 Comments

You may not have realized this, but Photobucket’s videos are easily customizable to reflect your moods, brands, artwork, and photography.  You can "skin" the player so that when your videos are embedded on a website or profile page, it looks the way that you want it to. The skin image will appear "behind" the player as a background.

It’s very easy and we’ve created a tutorial here to guide you through the process.

You can also search Photobucket for MySpace Backgrounds and then save the image to your desktop with the new filename of player_skin.jpgRe-upload the image in the same folder as your videos (even remix videos!) and you’ve got a custom video player!

You can use the sky, and artsy pics in this post to try it out if you like.
