How to Apply or Change BACKGROUND Settings

What is the Player Background?

The background skin is an image and/or color that is displayed behind the video location window in the player.

Note: For further details see, Understanding how the player is structured.

Note: If the video location window is the same size or larger than the player's size area, the background skin will be hidden behind it.
