VLC - MetroX

380.2K Views1 Collected Privately


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:
