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

-----------

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)

-----------

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

-----------

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

-----------

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

I just update VLC to 2.2.0 and look like mouse auto-hide function of MinimalX is not working anymore.

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.

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 :-)

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

Bug:
- Mouse cursor not auto hide in FullScreen mode.
- When Left click to video, setting popup disappear but button of it still active !
- Volume popup potion so high !

Hope you add option "show top bar" to this skin !

Could I suggest adding the functionality to drag the player from anywhere (even the centre screen) as opposed to only the bottom control bar? I just makes the skin seem less clunky and makes it more tactile (otherwise it can be confused to be unresponsive). 

Other than that, the borderless design looks fantastic; I like the unique and artistic look of it :)

however i've updated it again - mainly the background. I think it fits way better now to the original concept.

This is what your skin has been doing on Windows 8 on both blue and zine

I cannot resize it or move it at all and it is only with your skin.

I use this theme fine on Windows 8.1 but my friend has this issue on Windows 7 when I recommended this theme, there seems to be no way at all to move the window into view.

Maverick07x Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
Well the trick is that you have to play a smaller file than your resolution first then you can resize the window.
Close VLC again - and then open a larger video.

For me this way works perfect, otherwise i have the same issue

Great to hear! I'm not picky or anything; I was just curious as to why it was no longer included when I was updating to a newer version.
