Android – styling seek bar

I would extract drawables and xml from Android source code and change its color to red.
Here is example how I completed this for mdpi drawables:

Custom red_scrubber_control.xml (add to res/drawable):

<selector xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">

    <item android:drawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_control_disabled_holo" android:state_enabled="false"/>
    <item android:drawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_control_pressed_holo" android:state_pressed="true"/>
    <item android:drawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_control_focused_holo" android:state_selected="true"/>
    <item android:drawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_control_normal_holo"/>
</selector>

Custom: red_scrubber_progress.xml

<layer-list xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" >

    <item
        android:id="@android:id/background"
        android:drawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_track_holo_light"/>
    <item android:id="@android:id/secondaryProgress">
        <scale
            android:drawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_secondary_holo"
            android:scaleWidth="100%" />
    </item>
    <item android:id="@android:id/progress">
        <scale
            android:drawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_primary_holo"
            android:scaleWidth="100%" />
    </item>

</layer-list>

Then copy required drawables from Android source code, I took from this link

It is good to copy these drawables for each hdpi, mdpi, xhdpi. For example I use only mdpi:

Then using Photoshop change color from blue to red:

red_scrubber_control_focused_holo.png:
red_scrubber_control_focused_holo

red_scrubber_control_normal_holo.png:
red_scrubber_control_normal_holo

red_scrubber_control_pressed_holo.png:
red_scrubber_control_pressed_holo

red_scrubber_primary_holo.9.png:
red_scrubber_primary_holo.9

red_scrubber_secondary_holo.9.png:
red_scrubber_secondary_holo.9

red_scrubber_track_holo_light.9.png:
red_scrubber_track_holo_light.9

Add SeekBar to layout:

<SeekBar
    android:id="@+id/seekBar1"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:progressDrawable="@drawable/red_scrubber_progress"
    android:thumb="@drawable/red_scrubber_control" />

Result:

enter image description here

seekbar custom material style

My answer is inspired from Andras Balázs Lajtha answer
it allow to work without xml file

seekBar.getProgressDrawable().setColorFilter(Color.RED, PorterDuff.Mode.SRC_IN);
seekBar.getThumb().setColorFilter(Color.RED, PorterDuff.Mode.SRC_IN);
