VLC - MetroX

MetroX for the VLC Media Player in 10 different colors
- for Windows


(28.12.2012) Release 1.0
(03.01.2017) Update 2.8.0 ~ changing + adding new colors // general improvements // removing Win 8 version
(18.02.2017) Update 2.9.0 ~ new background // more improvements // draggable menu titles
(26.03.2017) Update 2.9.1 ~ skin starts with title bar // couple of fixes
(30.03.2017) Update 2.9.2 ~ position bar fix (for very high resolutions)
(27.03.2018) Update 3.0.0 ~ some fixes // added button hits

1. Extract the .vlt file to ...VideoLAN/VLC/skins ~ overwrite if needed
2. Delete previous versions of the skin
3. Start VLC => Preferences => Check to custom skin
4. Restart VLC (otherwise the fullscreen mode won't be visible)


If you can't see the control buttons because the videos are 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.
Play a video smaller than your resolution - now all movies should be the same size

Hint 2:
Fullscreen buttons will only appear after a skin restart (by closing and starting vlc again)


If you can't grab the player because the skin appears at the wrong positon - try this version:

Great job on the skin. Could you please add a colour picker so I can switch the details to Purple? Or just add purple so we can switch to it ourselves? Thanks.

I suggest some changes:
-make it possible to move the player by clicking in any area;
-Put the buttons [Minimize/Expand/close] in the upper right corner, in the "Hover" (hidden, that appears when you hover); You could put all the top bar, the "Windows 10 Themed" in this mode, in order to facilitate your work;
-enable move/relocate the songs already added to the playlist;
-and if possible, decrease the amount of seconds the directional button clicked skipped (right or left) on the keyboard.

• Thank you for creating this theme, and I'll be very grateful for the future changes. *Hugs!*

Thank you for this skin it looks really good !
But i have issues with fullscreen on a 4k monitor, it doesn't fit the entire screen, to make it work I need to move vlc on my second screen (1080p) then to move it back to my main screen (4k). 
Can you fix it ? 
Here is a screenshot of the issue with a 4k movie :

hey, do you have the issue only with this skin? In other words, did you tried it on some others as well?

How do i change the color?

This skin is so beautiful, one problem though songs with Asian characters (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) only display boxes.

But this seems to happen with all skins...

Edit: It turns out you just need a font with all characters, Ariel Unicode MS works

it's absolutely perfect and using it daily for IPTV,
but whats seriously annoying is how much space in playlist is taken by 'useless' stuff and empty space (Playlist options button and huge space around dividing line)

Would be really cool to have just <- PLAYLIST + - and immediatelly playlist item rows after that ... or option to set it like that

this is I'm talking about Playlist by art4style

OMFG! I love you so much, this is got to be one of the best works EVER! Simply beautiful to look at, kinda reminds me of the old Microsoft Zune player.

A few updates I would love to see are:
a) When I maximize (not full screen) it, the window hides my taskbar, please change it so the taskbar remains visible.
b) When I disable Windows styled title bar, I see an option to close VLC but no option to minimize it. Having that would be lovely.

c) I would love to be able to use it maximized (with task bar visible so I can cycle between show/hide taskbar by just going full screen) disabled title bar with option to close, resize or minimize either appearing in VLC control bar above my task bar or (the best) appear in top right corner when I hover my mouse over there (just like UWP apps behave in full screen mode)

Hands down my all-time favorite VLC skin!
It's simple, it's beautiful, and it allows you to choose a few settings while most others don't.

Hi, I don't know if this request is at all possible, but are you able to implement a setting in the main menu to allow the seek bar/buttons to hover over the video with mild transparency, that disappears when idle? Kind of like wmp does? Thank you in advance :)
