Hello,

We currently don't provide a way for you to modify the look of the TechSmith Smart Player that Camtasia uses.  What find of modifications are you interested in doing?  We are also looking for feedback to help feed future work.

Thanks,
Ben

As example i would like to change the color of the mainbeam at bottom, the color of icons, the style of popup "Loading video..." and so on. In some pages the player looks like a "extraneous bodies".

Thank you for the specific examples. 

I can add that the Smart Player does support a light theme.  You can manually edit the [production-name]_player.html and add:

TSC.playerConfiguration.setTheme( TSC.themeNames.DAWN );

In the script tag that you will see other uses of TSC.playerConfiguration.

Besides that, all the styles of the Smart Player are controlled by a single CSS file.  If you are experienced with CSS you can override a lot of the CSS classes to change the look.  However we can not support that and is subject to break with future versions of the player.
