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
[06.12.2014] - Update to 2.2: new background / added green color / couple of other 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

VLC - MinimalX by ~Maverick07x MinimalX is an incredibly gorgeous VLC skin; simple and yet functional! ( Featured by fediaFedia )

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 :)

Yep you are right. I actually don't know why its not working - on my other skins it does.
Maybe i can figure it out ;)

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.

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
