I absolutely love this skin and I can't use iTunes without it (yes, I'm still on the 10.7 version, I love the cover flow option).

You probably won't be able to help me but I've got nothing to lose asking: I recently had to reset my computer to Win 10. The iTunes 10.7 setup works just fine, but once I use the exe for the skin, I can't start iTunes again as there are "files missing". Do you know where it could come from?

Thanks again for your beautiful work I've been using for years now!

Thank you for continuing to make this available (esp for 10.7). I've had to restore my laptops at times or (as one does) buy new ones over the years, and it is fantastic bring able to get this dark iTunes skin each time. 
Could you perhaps change the white sidebar and white title bar and make them a little darker like a grey/dark grey with white letters?

First, this is a wonderful skin you (and DaHLiA) made... I'm drawn to the fact that someone actually made the GRID in Windows iTunes dark too. Thanks for putting in the effort to skin the otherwise grey/boring application. THANKS YALL.

Second, there are some issues with the skin--I'm not sure if they are skinning errors or bugs by iTunes itself (iTunes 10.7):

1. When viewing the album art (when you click to enlarge artwork for a track which opens a mini window) the window's border does not match the player's skin unless the song is playing [See Image 1 and Image 2]
2. When you click to enlarge artwork for a track, the image is scaled--meaning if you right-click on the image and selected 'Actual Size' or 'Double Size' etc, the image will default after done looking at it & you will have to reselect 'Actual Size'. This may be an issue with iTunes 10 though. [See Image 3 and Image 4]

**--**The following notes are for anyone who can address them and aren't directed at anyone in particular**--**

Third, do you know how to make square album artwork when viewing in Grid View? When I'm in Grid View, the artwork for 'Artists' is rounded, which I hate. However, the artwork for 'Albums' is squared. How do you make the album artwork squared? There was a user here on DeviantArt who successfully squared the album artwork, but their account is deactivated--Nuclear Blasshole. I have no way of contacting them. There was also another user on a MacThemes forum who achieved squared corners, but the thread is deleted (I still have the link to this). [See Image 5 and Image 6]

And no, I do not want to use the new view option combining elements from Grid View/List View that comes with iTunes 10+'s unorganized and silly. I don't know what Apple was thinking.

Fourth, do you know how to remove the album art from the Grid View? Once you select an artist from the Grid View and you are brought to the Artist's albums--is there a way to remove this artwork AND to remove the column (both options I'm asking separately)? The column says "Album by Artist". It's pointless and inflexible. The album information is to the right of it at all times and looks awkward. [See Image 7]

I'm not too tech savvy, but if anyone can guide me through them, let me know. I'm desperate to have my iTunes be agreeable. I'm actually still using iTunes 9.2.... mainly because the album art & columns were not screwed with by Apple. But the grid in the Silent Night Version for iTunes 9 is all white and the other spaces are grey--it is not ALL dark like this one.

Thank yall for taking the time to read this. Any help is appreciated!!! I've been looking so long for solutions. Have a good one!

1- iTunes bug, the player is using the Windows frame instead of the custom skin, can't fix that.

2- iTunes bug (or feature?)

3- You can try to replace the images that are used for the Artists tab grid.

4- You can drag the column to hide the album info and right click in the album cover to make it smaller. I don't remember if was possible to remove the column altogether, have you looked in the view options?

Hi 1davi. I have to say that this skin is the best 'dark' theme there is for iTunes and I have been using it for a long time. However, I have now had to upgrade to 11.3, and I'm really gutted you don't have this theme for verion 11.3. I have had to go and download the DUSK theme, which is also nice, but the sidebar menu (playlists etc) is grey (unlike silentnight - all dark).... Is there any way to make this all dark, or any plans to release a silentnight for 11.3. Many thanks and respect for your work.

Unfortunately some colors can't be changed on iTunes 11 anymore, that's why I decided to leave the sidebar the way it is. For that same reason I don't plan to update Silent Night.
