You need to add some parameter called theme and color at the end of URL while embedding videos, for example if you would like to embed light color player then this is how you player code may look like

<iframe width="516" height="323" src=""></iframe>


<object width="516" height="323">
<param name="movie" value=""></param>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param>
<param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param>
<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="516" height="323"></embed>
