Change the player color, disable comments, and control branding with Appearance.
Get your video looking sharp! Perfectly tailor your video’s visual style in the Appearance tab.
The Customize panel should be your first stop when making a Wistia video your own. Changing the appearance of your video and making some decisions about the look of the Wistia media page is super easy thanks to the Appearance tab.
To get to the Appearance tab, you’ll want to navigate to the video you’d like to edit. From there, select Customize -> then Appearance.
In thetab, you can add and remove branding, update the player color, and turn comments on or off.
First, the player color should reflect your branding, to encourage more consistency in your viewers' experience.
Next, you can choose whether visitors to the video page will have the option to leave comments.
Finally, you can switch on or off the Wistia branding and, optionally, your own custom branding.
Custom branding allows you to personalize your video with a default custom logo. Next to Custom Player Branding, click configure to upload your own logo. From there you can automatically add that image to videos of your choice. You can even add a link that allows viewers to link to your website while they are watching your video. The logo will live at the top left corner of your video, take a look below!
Updating the player color is the simplest way to make the Wistia player your own. From the Customize panel, just select the color you’d like from the color picker. You can also input a hexadecimal color to get your branding perfectly on point.👌
You also have the option to limit the spectrum of player colors that you can choose from. This gives you color options that are accessible and high visibility, therefore improving the viewing experience for those with visual and/or color impairment.
By default, viewers of your content will be able to leave comments. To disable this functionality, open the Customize panel, and under thetab, un-check the Enable comments checkbox.
To disable comments across all videos, check out the project defaults section.
If you’d like to update your email preferences (to skip getting a new email whenever there’s a new comment), just head to your account settings.
Looking to make sure you’re leaving a comment at the exact right spot? Click on the Link comment to current time in video option to time-stamp your comment.
