Skin support for VLC is now mature and there are some wonderful skins. You may like to use them rather than the default interface.

Using a skin


First, go to the Skin page, choose a skin and download it.

In addition to the skins listed below, VLC supports all the Winamp2 and XMMS skins (.wsz files).

Run this skin

Now run vlc -I skins2 (or launch VLC skins if you've got a shortcut to it). VLC opens with its default skin. Hit Ctrl-S and choose the .vlt file. VLC has now a new default skin!


If you want to have it automatically detected, place it in the skins subfolder of your VLC installation:

   * Windows users: Put it in C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\skins
   * Linux users: Put it in ~/.vlc/skins2
