VLC - MinimalX by Maverick07x VLC - MinimalX by Maverick07x
MinimalX skin for the VLC Media Player in four different colors.
[ Toxic / Cyan / Sunrise / Zune ]

-----------
[16.07.2013] - Release (v1.0)
[18.07.2013] - Update to 1.1: Just some small estethic changes
[12.08.2013] - Update to 1.2: added settings window + custom playlist + another color
[17.09.2013] - Update to 1.3: couple estethic changes + small / big positionbar + decreased filesize
[18.09.2013] - Update to 1.3.1: fixed coverart
[29.09.2013] - Update to 1.4: settings window now included in the mainframe + slightly darker
[10.01.2014] - Update to 1.5: playlist now in sidebar + some small changes
[11.02.2014] - Update to 1.6: redesigned menu + minimal mode
[30.03.2014] - Update to 1.6.1: support for higher resolution

-----------

Notes:
- at first use, drag the volumebar over the volumeicon.
After the volumebar snap into place, it will always appear over the icon.

-----------

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

-----------

Bugs:
Can't see the control buttons because the video is bigger than the screen resultion?...this should help:
Preferences => Interface Settings
- Switch back to native style
- Uncheck "Resize interface to video size"
Save and close the Interface Settings.

Open the interface settings again, and now switch to custom skin. (open the skin file and close vlc as usual)
- Play a smaller video, and resize the window to the size you want.
- Close VLC once again
Now every video will have the same size until you change it.

-----------

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

The window interface is missing for me, any idea what could be causing it? Switched from 1.3.x which worked fine; the fullscreen controls work fine though.

Looks really good!!

Some bugs/feature-requests I found:
* Resize with Windowskey-right/down/left/up does not work
* Fullscreen does not work with my current screen resolution (3200 x 1800)
* Ability to resize interface would be great

This is gorgeous. The VLC website has skins that might have looked cool in like 2002. Thanks so much for this!
