Theme Builder Playlist CSS Class Names

Theme Builder relies on Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to stylize the player and playlists.

The stylistic portions of a Theme Builder embed that can be altered with CSS are the player and the playlists:

  • Players: Ooyala's HTML5 player has its own set of CSS class names that are documented CSS Class Names in Player V3. An example of working with the class names is Overriding Default Styles with CSS in Player V3.
  • Playlists: Class names that affect playlists' characteristics are listed below. Only some of the more important classes that control visual effects are listed.
    Note: Many of the styles are enforced via !important, so you might not be able to override some particular styles.
