eDark Vlc by Aaron-A-Arts eDark Vlc by Aaron-A-Arts
Upgraded Version
eDark PotPlayer by ~dlind87
the video area in this skin is widescreen dimensions, so any standard wide video will automatically fill the window all the way to the edge. aesthetics? tested working well in Linux and Windows. (On Windows there is no drop shadow. sorry)
this is based on the dark version of elementary gtk that i've been developing. but it stands apart as its own little thing i think.
i learned a lot by studying vlc themes built by other talented artist here on dArt. these guys in particular, thanks for your work
:iconeamon63: and :iconmonkeyb07:

to skinners: if you want to port this to another player feel free. no need to ask permission. but drop me a link to your port, and be sure to link back here.

on one of my laptops I have Enlghtenment 0.19 installed and this theme goes with it, so beautifully.
Very clean. Perfect colour.

one thing i'd change is a skip forward/back (it has next chapter/media).. No interface editing in any of these themes.

Very Nice Looking!
Thank You.
Landis.

love this skin, but is there any way to make it *not* re-size the window to fit when opening a video? ...like how the standard VLC skin works.

Hey Aaron, how did you add those avatars of the people who inspired you? I just uploaded my own skin and wanted to add your avatar in the description for credits, but no idea how.

How i can change those exit,min,max buttons? I would like to get Placebo Black Market look like buttons there.

Do i need somekind of application to edit vlc skins?

there is an app called vlc skin editor.. but you might be able to extract the vlt, change the images, then zip it back up more quickly

I managed to do it =D Can i upload my modified Vlc skin here in dA? I only changed min/max/close buttons and then i removed those 2 icons in top right and moved min,max,close buttons there, then i removed that resize window icon.

If i get your permission then i will upload it =D

For me, in fullscreen the controls cannot be hidden, and do not auto-hide. Is this right?

:iconaaron-a-arts:
Aaron-A-Arts Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2011  Student Digital Artist
unfortunately it's just the way it is =/ there is currently no way to auto hide it in vlc. its either always there or never there

Aaaron, I see, thank you so much for the answer. Is there some way for me to make it go away, a setting somewhere or similar? :) BTW the default skin has a little x to hide the control in full-screen. Perhaps that would be a possible additional feature.

Anyway, again, excellent and beautiful skin! Thank You!

Oh Boy! :D tried it and I miss there some thing. Could you disable always on top function and automatic displaying equalizer and playlist? I rarely use them and its not always on my taste to clicking them off all the time :)

i released the upgrade separately, check my gallery. the new version fixes those issues and fixes the buttons so that they toggle show/hide instead of just show. also adds some nice stuff =D
