Player V4 provides many options for customizing the player experience. Where the same
configuration setting (for example, player background color) is controlled by different
mechanisms, it is important to understand which mechanism prevails and appears to the viewer

The following figure shows which settings take precedence in priority order (1 = highest
You can configure playback experience using the
Default Settings and OverridesEvery mechanism has default settings that
you can override by changing their default values.
Precedence Depends on Where Skin Resources are Hosted
Where player settings overlap across mechanisms, precedence is conditional based on where the player skin is hosted.
For example, if the default player color is orange in Backlot and blue in skin.json, the prevailing color (during playback) depends on where skin.json is hosted.
- If Ooyala hosts your skin.json file, then the viewer will see orange.
- If you host your skin.json file, then the viewer will see blue.
- If you have no settings anywhere, the core default will set a color.
