The WordPress media player is great and all, but the default styling doesn’t fit into too many themes. Couple that with the fact that there aren’t a lot of theme developers who add custom styles for the media player and you have the need for Media Player Style Kit – a simple way to change your media player colours without writing a single line of code.
- Easily editable colours in the familiar Customiser interface
- No need to write custom CSS or any other code
- Live previews of colour changes inside the Customiser
- Replaces the media player buttons with the WordPress Dashicons font for easy customisation
Media Player Style Kit will work with any WordPress site. It will customise the display of the built-in WordPress media player and not media players added by other plugins/themes.
