VLC - MinimalX

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

best skin of all time espically the blue color

Is it possible to increase the size of the UI elements?

Amazing skin. Thank you!

Missing A->B repeat mode button.

Love your work !

how to download this?

This is a nice skin, but it has no support for UTF-8 characters. Or it seems like it as Asian characters display as empty square boxes.

FINALLY A SKIN THAT looks good and doesnt move the bloody minimize and escape buttons (its a setting to bring them back), i love the extra settings and i am so happy that you had an option for enabling the regular windows tilebar, i just hate having to drag windows by the bottom like the other skins make you do

Nice skin thanks for uploading

You have to login to with your DevianArt account to download the MinimalX VLC 3.0.0-f fixed version. Hope that helps. Thanks for the theme! :)

How do I set up the GREEN theme? I see only PINK. Where do I configure the custom colors, please?


at the bottom right there is cog button, cluck that and a window comes up, in the window at the bottom there is a down arrow, click that and the window will scroll down, then click on highlight colour and select the colour you want

Thanks! Working awesomely!
