How to change the swf video player in joomla video module

Sometime you may need to change the color or shape of the video player. But normally it is in a swf file. So we may need to change the swf source file. First of all you need a swf de-compiler to get the source of the swf. I use Sothink SWF Decompiler to make it. Its have 30days trial version but can fulfill your need. To download it go to

After the installation open the swf and export the fla source file of the flash.

Then you need adobe Flash software to edit the fla file.

Open the ~videoPlayer.fla in adobe flash. Press ctrl+L to open the library of the fla. And make your change what you want.

Then run the source and get the swf output. That’s all :-)
