I've been using your skin (1.3) for a while now and would ask if you can fix/change the following to make it perfect:
* Make a grey theme (that only uses shades of white to black, no colors). All the colors clash with changing wallpapers. * Add the Playlist and Preferences buttons to full screen controls (many people have dual-monitors so this is needed, including myself). * Ctrl+A no longer works in the playlist (to select all items). * Drag and drop doesn't work by dragging files into the video window. * Allow the playlist to resize to a bigger size and/or work full screen. * Label the playlist window "Playlist". Preferences window "Preferences". Playlist is labelled "VLC Media Player" and the main window is labelled "VIC Media Player". Confusing. * Fix the volume so that it can increase a maximum of 20% (like the latest VLC). Please see: doropie.com/files/vlc_volume.j… * Add an on/off button or tab for the compressor. It makes the volume much louder. I enable it everytime when starting VLC, but with the skin, even more difficult to find and enable. Please see: doropie.com/files/vlc_compress… * Make playlist display video duration and total video duration (like with no skin). * Playlist items can't be rearranged via drag and drop.
In the playlist, there are three icons on the bottom left. I know what the first two are. What is the third circle? There are no tooltips so have no idea.
Really excellent skin.
Must I assist you with fixing/adding these things?
One request : Could you make a Playlist View available ? For example when im listeing to music i have the Big Black Square with the Play+Pause buttons and i have a second floating window with the Playlist. That makes 2 windows for a single purpouse. So instead of making the Playlist window floating can you make it be in the Main player window? Thanks a lot! and awesome work so far
It's great to be able to resize the fullscreen bar, and place it where we want ! But there is a little problem : when i try to put this bar at the bottom of the screen, there is always 1 pixel between the bottom and the bar (due to the automatic placement).
+ if we could have the time of the video when we put the cursor on the progress bar. This can be very usefull to jump a part of a video (for exemple openings)
Hi, i'd love to suggest something which is...can you add a small toolbar on the top of the screen which has the file name on the top which is being played. And if you could add the minimize button and the close button on the top as well that would be great. Another thing is that, when you have an application opened e.g Chrome and you click on the vlc button to open the window, I tried pressing spacebar to play the video but i had to click on the vlc screen to allow the spacebar to work on it. Is there a way to directly press the spacebar to play/pause the video after changing windows? Oh and the buttons on top of the laptop which are specifically used for playing/pausing or skipping the next video do not work for this skin. This is by far the best skin for vlc. Good Job sir!!
as mentioned, huge memory hog, 300megs+. Also, i cannot resize it, it always starts at the top left corner and i dont have access to the top bar to move it anywhere. pretty useless, even tho it looks good.
i have noticed that, but for the features i have implemented i think and hope that its worth it. - There will be a little re-size icon at the bottom right side of the player which you can drag to re-size the window. - You can drag the player around by simply holding anywhere on the player except for the video window and the buttons (volume , close etc)..i intentionally removed the top bar to give it a sleeker look compared to older version (slim bean). - Also the player will only start at the top left corner of the page the first time you install it , its really nothing to do with skin , its how vlc reacts to new skins.. after you close it once at your preferred position , the next time you use it will remember your previous position. hope this answered all your problems. really appreciate your feedback.
