    Are there any skins that just allow the video to be the video, not framed ? and have a separate control panel for play stop, volume etc ? I have used BSplayer for years as it does this, pause on single click, carry on from last known position, and volume up and down on scroll wheel. is any of this possible with VLC ?

    I still prefer K-Lite Codec Pack with its awesome Media Player Classic…

    Plays all known formats flawlessly (even animated GIFs and SWF animations and games) and has the best minimalistic interface I’ve ever seen. Works well on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. For normal users, it’s as simple as possible while professional users will find it easy to change every aspect of the player, codecs and decoders settings.

    I prefer a simple player with just a seek bar so that I see nothing but the video itself. The compact view is my favorite (keyboard shortcut: “2”)

    Every command has a corresponding keyboard shortcut as well. Play/pause (space bar), previous/next file in the playlist or in the folder (PgUp/PgDn), change the volume (Up/Down arrow keys), move the seek bar (Left/Right arrow keys + ctrl or alt), etc.

    I’ve tried VLC, KMPlayer, GOM Media Player, Winamp and several others, but K-Lite is still the only player I need on my Windows laptop.

    Awesome. Thank you for the post. I use VLC sparingly – only to watch movies. Winamp is my favorite for music – both offline and online.
    I am now downloading the Orion theme. Looks great. 🙂

    I have the vlc skin editor.

    Can’t make sense of how to use it.

    Has anyone come across a good video, or simple instructions?

    Why can’t I have a menu bar at the top if I use a custom skin?
