Skin Your YouTube Videos

Like YouTube videos but want something fancier than YouTube’s default dull and boring player? Slide SkinFlix can help turning the dull player into one with bling blings within seconds, in which you can embed it on your blog, MySpace profile etc.

You can choose to pick a video skin (frame) or a theme (butterflies etc flying around on the video)—or even both of them. I made a demo using a video of an Airbus A380 landing at Heathrow Airport, with Fireflies as the theme and a TV as the skin.

The theme thing is quite annoying to me as it’s somewhat blocking the video, but the skin is sure cool, especially when you want something more special than the color and border offered by YouTube.

Have fun customizing your videos!

    Useful stuff here, thanks. Do you know whether Slide allows you to create custom skins?
