The new Orion Video Player theme brings a whole new look and feel to our proprietary Bolt Video Player. A clean and modern design coupled with an improved user experience, brings your video content to the forefront. The current theme will now be called the Classic Theme and the Orion Theme will now be the default theme for all new videos you upload to Playwire.
