VLC - MinimalX

By Maverick07x
1K Favourites
MinimalX skin for the VLC Media Player
[ Blue / Pink / Green]

[16.07.2013] - Release (v1.0)

[30.03.2017] - Update to 2.6.0
[25.04.2017] - Update to 2.6.2
[28.03.2018] - Update to 3.0.0:  fixes / optimization / button hints


1. Extract the .vlt file to ...VideoLAN/VLC/skins ~ overwrite if needed
2. Start VLC => Preferences => Check to custom skin
3. Restart VLC (by closing and starting it again)
- if you already use a custom skin restart VLC as well - otherwise the fullscreen mode won't work


Returning to normal mode:
If you have issues to return from "Minimal Mode" to the normal mode => doubleclick the bottom bar


- If the video frame doesn't seems right, switch to fullscreen mode and back again


Hint 1:
If you can't see the control buttons because the video is 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
- Restart VLC

Fixed version:
If you still can't see the control buttons / can't move the window - Download this version:


Any bug report, suggestion or wishes to improve the skin are welcome

This skin is very aesthetically appealing, but doesn't show album art. :(

My gosh is this theme beautiful. Thanks so much for making this!!

The only issue I have with it is that when I open Vlsub plugin VLC crashes.

Do you know if there's any possible solution to that or if it could be fixed?

This is so far the best here. But lacks vital elements:

- No minimize button for the default skin setting (one with no title bar).

- No mute/unmute button.

They are,

- Titlebar check [Enable Windows Titlebar] in [Settigns Time Gear Emote > Advanced settings and colors Bullet Arrow Down > Skin settings]

- Mute: click number in volumen menu
