    Changing the configuration

    Although changing the configuration is beyond the scope of this document, a couple comments on that subject are appropriate.

    • Studio provides a UI to alter many aspects of the configuration of the player in the PLAYERS module.
    • For complete control of the player's configuration the Player Management API can be used. Be aware, this is for the developer oriented and uses curl statements extensively. The Step-by-Step: Player Management document provides an introduction to the process.
