To edit the player skin FLA file and make it work in PlayerDIY Web Player, the tutorial as below:

1. Firstly, please make sure that the "codebase.swf" file and the project file "XXX.fla" file are in the same folder so that you can preview the player result after editing.

After editing in Adobe Flash 9 (Adobe Flash CS3), click the "Control>Test Movie" or "File>Publish" option to generate the "XXX.swf" file, which is the corresponding file of the "XXX.fla".

3. Rename the "XXX.swf" to another name such as "XXX2.swf".

4. Print screen the new skin that you get and save the image as "XXX2.bmp".

Note: Please make sure that the size of the image is 220*36 pixel (W*H) and pay attention that the red color is default as the transparent color in this program.

5. Find the original file "XXX.xml" in the folder C:\Program Files\PlayerDIY\Web Player Pro\Control, copy and paste it to the same folder of "XXX2.swf". And then rename it to "XXX2.xml".

6. Copy and paste the three files "XXX2.swf", "XXX2.bmp" and "XXX2.xml" to C:\Program Files\PlayerDIY\Web Player Pro\Control.
