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)
[06.08.2014] - Update to 2.1: fixed playlist / redesigned music mode + background
[07.08.2014] - Update to 2.1.1: fixed background
[18.08.2014] - Update to 2.1.2: fixed positionbar in fullscreen mode


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


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


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

It doesn't show the album art if I play audio. How can I fix this?

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.

Ooo, I'd also love a green theme if possible! Ideally a dark / muted green as opposed to a bright neon one.

Theme runs great, only one issue I am having, the mouse cursor does not auto-hide in fullscreen when other themes do just fine, this is my favorite theme so I just deal with it and have to hide the cursor by placing it as far as it will go to the right edge of the screen.

Would it be possible to make the popup windows (playlist, options, etc.) draggable instead of having them just sit fixed at midscreen?

Can I change your skin background?
