Download the skin and its image in ~videolan/www/vlc/skins2/

Add a thumbnail for the skin:

% skins-thumbs

Add the skin to the skin pack:

% skins-pack

Connect to the postgresql database:

% psql -d www-videolan

Add the skin to the skins table:

INSERT INTO skins (name,author,image,url) VALUES ('<name>','<author>','<image name>','<vlt name>');

And rate the skin:

INSERT INTO "skins-rating" (skin_id,rating) VALUES ((SELECT LAST_VALUE FROM skins_id_seq), '5');

(ratings can be 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5, 5 being the best rating) We need to rate the skin at least once or it won't appear on the webpage (unless someone fixes the SQL query).
