Great potential but it crashes with VLSub in Windows 10.  Also, the bottom bars seems too thick and eats a lot of real estate. If there is a way to reduce the height of the colored and button bars and make them user configurable, it will be a great skin.

A custom skin that I can actually move from the top instead of having to move it solely from the bottom and have it get stuck under the taskbar? 10/10.

Beautiful and generally smoothly working skin!

However:
- Full screen mode doesn't seem to work (Windows 10 64 Bit).
- It would be nice if the playlist width could be adjusted (increased).
- As well as an option to undock the playlist.

If these issues are fixed it will be the no. 1 VLC Media Player skin on the market :-)

Doesn't work well on Arch with Openbox and tint2
SS : postimg.org/image/3oiu8seix/

*Only happens when i maximize the window..
Temporary workaround is moving the window or making it full screen..

The other issue is that it doesn't really like tint2, its process with the name "VLC (Top Window)" are making me hard to know the playing window.. plus, it will come across the tint2 taskbar..

Great work, but i think that the low bars and top are very large and covers too much space.

There seems to be a bug with this in Ubuntu (using Unity). Upon maximization, the top menu bar doesn't merge with the global bar and hence it appears to be cut from the bottom. I've attached a screenshot.
By the way, this is a great looking theme. Keep up the good work!

Ive noticed some bugs on Gnome Shell (3.16), when I try to full screen, gnome-panel is still there and the vlc panel shows up only a half, that doesn't happend with the default theme.

BTW it's a beautiful theme, I love it, wanna see the next releases

Please follow step 4 from installation instruction or - if it don't solve the problem - make a screenshot.
Thank you for your opinion.

I did try the step 4 ctually, nothing happened. So there it goes the screenshot, as you can see, full screen still shows gnome-panel. It is kinda weird but I wont change this beautiful theme :D

EDIT: There is another bug, gnome-shell cant "preview" (corner gesture) the VLC window, it shows a black 5px or so box

I made an update, so please download a new version.
Now you can move the full screen interface by dragging the playback (white) bar.

what about the memory usage?
Reply

elementarius Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015
This is not a simple question. In the first period VLC uses more than 100 MB, but after a few minutes it decreases to 20MB.

Impeccable, dude! Great work!
But, we've missed the buttons when mouse moving on full screen, again.

Thanks.

After each change of the skin, it is necessary to restart VLC. When you do that, everything will work as it should.

Aha! Yes, it does. Thanks. Finally VLC has a dignified skin, and is outstanding. I use VLC when PotPlayer have an infrequent issue whith some archives, but is realy nessesary. Pot Player is better player, though.

Would it be possible to make the area where it says the title (in the image one example is "Abstractions") not as high? Or give the option to change it like you do with other options (like, volume slider length). :) I really love it, but I think that is a bit to high.

Amazing skin though! Changed instantly! :)

I think it would be great to have a screenshot button at the left of the volume. I also want to report a decrease in the flow of the streaming while managing the player features, and a bug with 1080p videos.

:iconelementarius:
elementarius Featured By Owner Edited Aug 11, 2015
Soon taking a new snapshot button will appear as an option in the settings of the skin. Referring to the problem of performance, I think its occurrence is associated with codecs, because after changing the skin to another - somewhat simpler - the problem is not solved. Please write more about the environment used: OS, architecture, name codec packs

Please write more about a bug with 1080p - for me this problem does not occur.

:iconnicolasvisceglio:
In my case the problem was solved with a simpler skin. And not only that , iy works better with lighter videos like 360p. With 1080p videos the skin gives problems.

elementarius Featured By Owner Edited Aug 11, 2015
Please unpack the skin and rename/delete all progress bars except  "main_progress_bar" and "volume_progress_bar", then test it again. Probably this problem is associated with capabilities of your computer, and it will be necessary to change codecs on more efficient.

NicolasVisceglio Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2015
I don't know how to unpack it.

:iconelementarius:
elementarius Featured By Owner Edited Aug 11, 2015
You should rename the file "name.vlt" to "name.zip" and unpack it. Then make steps as above and using the VLC open the file named "theme.xml".

:iconnicolasvisceglio:
That didn't help. Besides I get a defective skin with those missing images. It works on full screen anyway, so no problem.
I see we don't have play - stop buttons on full screen, that would be a very important feature. Maybe an invisible ones appearing when mouse moving, like others I've seen on VLC.
Reply
:iconelementarius:
elementarius Featured By Owner Edited Aug 11, 2015
We've done it only for testing - not as a problem solution - so you don't need to use it this way. Fullscreen controls is finished, and it looks almost identically to normal window including control buttons. If you restart VLC it should appear correctly, maybe you are using a few displays, then it would be recommended to using VLC on one concrete display. I am sure this should finally work.

Not working on W7. Maybe because of NVIDIA GeForce 725 rFrce 630a, which doesn't accept W10 either. Great skin!
