But I can't figure out how to set the background color to black.
Why did you guys change the chat SWF?
The replacement is 10x worse, but its the only option available since you decided to replace both LivestreamChat.swf and LSChat.swf with the same Beta release.
Why do users have to log in to chat? /old still offers an anonymous chatroom!
Your solution to not being able to read the colored text on a white background was to disable colored text and make it so ONLY CERTAIN COLORS STILL WORK FOR THE USERNAME?

Doesn't anyone see these design changes and restrictions as a step backwards?
Simple solutions:
Reallow access to the LivestreamChat.swf that was replaced earlier this week.
Release the black chat from the playerv2.js embeddable player as a SWF!
Fire your DEV project leader for halfassing solutions and placing design limitations on what was an already extremely dynamic piece of software (playerv2.js and JSPlayer.swf)

Your company was offering something useful, customizable, fun, new, and easy to use.
You are now offering something ugly, restrictive to passive users, and it only comes in one color.

I used to tell everyone about how unique and amazing this site was, but now all I can do is complain about what its lost.
