    ...where to change the setting...
    I assumed he thought that he can change the color through FrodoPlayer settings.

    However those values are found in the skin.ini.

    For example the lines which control the colors of the playlist:
    PLAYLIST_CL_FORECOLOR=11184810
    PLAYLIST_CL_BACKCOLOR=0
    PLAYLIST_CL_SELECTCOLOR=0
    PLAYLIST_CL_SELECTFORECOLOR=16777215

    Just take a look at the skin.ini. It's really selfexplaining.

    Yes, I looked at those but there are too many digits in those numbers to be correct! But I guess they are right. I am used to the standard web colors that are 6 digits. FF9600 is the orange color I am using for my button glows etc.

    8 digits just didn't seem valid to me so I kept looking.


    Thanks

    Edit: for a test I changed the above 16777215 to FF9600 and it is black!! Where do I find out which numbers correspond to which colors?

    38655 converted to hex is 96FF (00 droppped) and it is neon green. Not orange.

    0096FF converted to dec is 38655 and is blue not orange.

    FF9600 converted to dec is 16750080 and IS ORANGE!
