You can change the color by using the CSS below. You can change the background color value to use a Hex or RGB value instead, this is just the default.

.mejs__time-total {
    background: hsla(0,0%,100%,1);
    margin: 5px 0 0;
    width: 100%;

You will likely want to change more CSS to customize the look and feel of the video player. I would highly recommend the new course for debugging CSS in the browser with Chrome Dev Tools
