Have you ever seen an audio (or video) player on a Website that integrated perfectly with the site’s look and feel? If so, chances are that this is not by accident.
Trusted by coaches around the world, AudioAcrobat has made the process of creating and customizing audio and video Player Themes easier than ever before.
In today’s post we will outline the steps of creating a custom AudioAcrobat Player Theme to match the look and feel of your coaching site, while effectively bringing a uniform presence to your brand and helping make your Website visitors feel at home.
Step 1: Create Account / Login

Step 2: Launch Player Theme Editor
After logging into your AudioAcrobat account, click Themes in the left navigation menu to bring up more options. Click New Player Theme to bring up the Player Theme editor. Once loaded, you should see something like this:
Notice the Player Preview radial button at the top? If you’re a member on either the Personal or Professional Plan, you can select the Video Player option to design Video Player Themes.
For today’s tutorial, we’ll be sticking to the Audio Player Themes, which are available to all members, regardless of plan.
Step 3: Customize and Save Player Theme
One of the first things we recommend when customizing your new AudioAcrobat Player Theme is to give the new theme a Title and Description which will help identify the purpose of the theme in the future.
Next, let’s take a look at the different Button Styles:
All of the above selections can be further customized by making a selection and moving over to the Colors tab.
Here, we have the option to modify both the Button and Icon Color, which can be done by clicking on the icon to the right of either selection and clicking and dragging our mouse cursor within the color palette as seen in this spiffy animated GIF.
After making any color adjustments, we’ll be moving over to the Controls tab for some fine tuning.
Looking at the Player Theme examples above, we see that all of the available Buttons are selected. Using the check boxes under the Controls tab, we can choose to add/remove any of the buttons we like, such as Play/Pause, Seek Bar, Play Timer and Volume Control.
Additionally, Button Padding can be used to introduce spacing between each individual button for a more segmented look.
When satisfied with your custom Audio Player Theme press the Save button at the bottom.
