Full Version: How to change the default viewtype in 19.4 Estuary?

I've been for some time trying to figure out how to change the default viewtype in Estuary, specifically so that addons (in my case iplayer-www and svt) pick up on the change. As it stands I can change the viewtype but it only applies to the current directory/page. If I enter a new subdirectory it falls back to the default. The only thing that seems to work is that it does remember my per-directory setting.

During my searching I've seen other ask this question but with no clear or conclusive answer. In the iplayer-www forum it was strongly implied this was a skin issue.

I've tried making a copy of the default skin addon directory, reordering the viewtype numbers in the <views> tag in MyVideoNav.xml and then enabling my modded skin, but no joy.

So any assistance to bring this quest to an end would be much appreciated.
