VLC - MinimalX by Maverick07x VLC - MinimalX by Maverick07x
MinimalX skin for the VLC Media Player in two different colors.
[ Blue / Zune ]

-----------
[16.07.2013] - Release (v1.0)
...
[06.12.2014] - Update to 2.2: new background / added green color / couple of other changes
[05.01.2015] - Update to 2.3: couple of changes
[05.05.2015] - Update to 2.3.1: fixed cinema mode / couple of small fixes
-----------

Installation:
Extract the .vlt file to ...VideoLAN/VLC/skins

-----------

Background:
The background is just a dummy and does not display your actual library - i just took the most common album arts / posters
(max. recommended resolution: 2560 x 1440)

-----------

Bugs:
- If the video frame doesn't seems right, switch to fullscreen mode and back again

-----------

Hint 1:
To return from cinema mode => doubleclick on bottombar


Hint 2:
If you can't see the control buttons because the video is bigger than the screen resultion - this should help:
- Preferences -> Interface Settings -> Look & Feel
- Switch to "Use native style"
- Uncheck "Resize interface to video size"
- Switch back to "Use custom skin"
- Save and close
- Restart VLC

-----------

Any bug report, suggestion or wishes to improve the skin are welcome

Maverick07x Featured By Owner May 14, 2015
well then don't get it out of the screen :P
But yes, it is dragable, and in case the video is bigger than your screen resolution follow my hint 2 in the description ;)

Hey, is there a way to change the background to something else? I can't seem to find the source image.

To change the source you have to extract the files via VLC Skin Editor

First of all, great job ! I love this skin!

but I have a problem. when I pass in cinema mode, the video disappears. I am forced to leave vlc. Known issue or am I the only one?
Reply
:iconmaverick07x:
Maverick07x Featured By Owner May 5, 2015
Yes that problem appeared since the vlc 2.2 update.

The cinema mode should be fixed with the updated version of the skin (2.3.1)
Also please update vlc to the newest version (2.2.1)

Is it possible to minimize place where video should be and show just progress bar and buttons? When I study I like to have small player always on top and listen to a lecture while scrolling the presentation. Anyways great work.

Sorry no it's not possible because there is no space for the buttons

I like your VLC theme.

minus : can't read japanese words + show original media coverart from my music file.

Maverick07x Featured By Owner May 5, 2015
Yes i know. The font i'm using has no japanese words.
And also i have no influence of the cover art - it's a bug from vlc itself

Thank you very much, but I experience some window/ video frame problems. The symbol line at the buttom is always hidden, the window is shifted and switching to fullscreen and back doesn't solve the problem. It would be nice if I could move the window by clicking the video screen/frame. At this time, it is not usable for me, don't know why. Other skins are working perfectly.

Mm, that sounds strange - could you send me a screenshot?

How to "pin" seek bar in fullscreen or restore to default location? Sometime I move this bar by accident and it's quite annoying

Also, can you make the window title normal (filename) instead of just "VLC Media Player"?

Is there a minimum width or something? I'm unable to make the window smaller than this when using the visualizer.

No sorry - if it would be smaller the buttons would overlay each other

Thanks for this skin Maverick..nice work.
I am using your latest 2.3 version, you changed the position of the volume slider but it has an issue ..when i reposition my player the slider stays in the same place it's not fixed to the button.. why not make it vertical?
I tag all my cd art with ID3v2.3 but your player does not recognise it, it does recognise ID3v1.1, is there a workaround?

Here is a screenshot: you can see that after repositioning the player the volume slider stays in the same place.

Okay that shouldn't happen - but this should fix it:
Open VLC - Change it to an other skin - Close VLC
Open VLC once again - Change back to this skin - and now click somewhere in the Window => Now it should work

Scratch that, at 2.3 release it was fixed, now today it simply doesn't work anymore, the mouse no longer auto-hides.
That's strange it worked and now it doesn't anymore.

:iconmaverick07x:
Maverick07x Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2015
I figured out the same - it's like a random thing.
Sometimes it hides, sometimes not. Also sometimes it takes longer?!
I still have no idea why it doesn't work properly.

What does the circlular button between the screenshot and information buttons do (the controls in the lower-left corner that can be toggled between time display, music, and video)? It toggles but I can't figure out what its doing or supposed to be doing.

Very nice skin..thanks. Only issue I have with it, is that I cannot see (/use) minimise/maximise/resize buttons. So I have not been able to use it with it fully minimised to the taskbar and I would really like to have that feature! If it can do this and I haven't found how, please tell me, or if it doesn't have this function, please consider adding it and then I would use this! Anyway nice work..thanks :-)

Maverick07x Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2015
You can't see them because there are no minimize and resize buttons.
I'm still not sure if i will add them once - but you can check out my other skins, as they all have those buttons, exept this
