Default player configuration
When you sign into your account the first time, a default player configuration is created for you. The default player configuration is highlighted with a Default player label in the Players list. The default player is pre-selected when you embed a video or create a live stream.
If you want to customize your default player:
- Select the default player from the Players list.
- In its player details page, make all of your customizations, then save your changes. Everywhere you've used this player, the changes will propagate.
You can create a new player configuration if you want to have different customizations available for different streaming events. For example, if you want different branding colors for a special event. See Create a player configuration in Wowza Video for more information.
