PotPlayer Skin - Metro.X by Zem0s PotPlayer Skin - Metro.X by Zem0s
I've tried to realize a real Metro Skin for PotPlayer.
... and that's the result!

It contains the videoplayer, the musicplayer, the playlist and of course the controlbox.

You can choose between 12 different versions.
[three colors, two backgrounds and two available sizes for the Play-Button]

The musicplayer will display the album cover from mp3 files, if embedded.

For the playlist I'm using "Segoe UI Semibold 9".

Different Version: [link]


v1.5 [09.06.2013]
# Added the function for attaching and detaching the playlist (audio- and videomode)
( The attached mode looks at the dark ones a little bit different )
# Changed some bordersizes and button-positions
# Option to select subtitles added
# Removed the gradient at the bottom of the equlizer in the audio mode

v1.6 [23.06.2013]
# Changed the bottom of the right side regarding the light-skins (on fullscreen).
# Changed the playlist-position on fullscreen
# Some modifications on the xml-files... So that the AutoHide-Patch can take effect!

v1.7 [18.11.2013]
# Some modifications on the xml-files... regarding the updated Patch
# Fixed some button positions

Metro.X - Patch v2.0 [With GUI] [18.11.2013]
This patch makes it possible to hide the playlist and the other stuff on fullscreen.
In addition you can transform the skin to a minimalistic version without the three metro squares.

The changes are for both versions: Russian and English

Info! Right-Click on the playlist-icon for attaching and detaching the playlist.

How do I go full screen on a Windows tablet? I don't have keyboard here, I have only finger. Can you please add fullscreen button?

Did you check the Mouse Settings?
Preferences->General->Mouse->Left Button - Double Click: FullScreen/Restore!

If you tab with your fingers twice on the video-window the player should change to full screen!

Sorry! I didn't visit the site since a couple of months ago.
That's correct. Just click the downdload-button there. 
I had to upload the patch somewhere else, because exe-files are not allowed!

You need to install the "Adobe Flash Player" to get the clock to work!

Excellent use of Metro style; have you thought about making skins for other programs, such as VLC? Hell, I'd suggest even talking to the VLC guys as they are working on a WinRT (Metro part of Windows 8) app and you definitely understand composition well.

If I'm allowed a comment about what I like about this theme and why I think it improves the whole experience of watching video using this player. The idea of not using the entire space of the video window is the first thing that strikes me as a big difference to classic design with dull title bars and everything. The choice of beige colour as a background which frames together the video window and the playlist part, with a nice purple colour for active items and dark grey for the commands bar on this particular theme of your skin is brilliant and for me it is enough to choose this skin over any other I've seen. For me the less is more and I really like to have less on the main screen for a few reasons. First, I use keyboard shortcuts a lot, in any application it is the first place I go if I want to use it, which means that in general I won't care much for providing too many options on the main screen of a media player. With Pot Player it is the main thing that attracts people I guess, playlist functionalities, bookmarking options, and other things further reduce the need for the use of the mouse. More advanced options is not what an average user of a video player will use much, such as video adjustments, audio tweaks etc. are the things that if ever I'll use only on the first use of the player and hardly ever again, so I'm happy to have the ones you provided on the command bar, which are basic tasks I'll perform endless number of times when using a video player. In that view I was saying that the three pretty big windows, which take up a significant portion of the screen, do stand in the way of the natural flow of colours that you achieved with your skin, and do not add a significant functionality to the user. Loading files from the player is the option that I exactly want to avoid, and why I use Pot Player. I arrange virtually everything into albums/playlists so I can switch to them more conveniently from within the player without having to open new windows. For me it was the selling point of Pot Player, which offers simplicity and functionality, focusing on the most important tasks an average user will have to perform repetitively, which with other players is never so intuitive and is often lost in the unreasonable number of other options which are not essentially what I need, such as various web interactions, biographies, ratings , irrelevant information about artists and who knows what else. Finally, that would be my individual preferences and I don't want to say that any user will look for the same things. It is probable in fact that most users will look no further than your original design, but a few more choices added to the GUI shouldn't be too much of a clutter so I vote for adding option to go without the three windows in the middle. Thank you again for the skin and the for the kind help with my features request.

Thank you again ZemOs, I really appreciate your help, but still didn't make it work, and I've tried a lot of times. When I insert the code you provided instead of the original one I get the message 'Control <Static> is not well formed and OK to confirm the message. I'm not doing something right again I guess, so I'll give it up and wait for you to add this option to the GUI. Thank you again for the help!

Hi Zemous,

Thank you very much for the answer! I don't use many commands and like to have my playlist open now and then and have the video window, kind of a minimalistic look. Your skin is absolutely what I'm looking for except for those three elements. I hope you are going to upload the version without them, and I'm going to wait until you do, I love the player functionalities and the skin is adorable.  I've tried to do as you advised, but I must have done something wrong, it didn't work for me unfortunately. I inserted <Static Align='Right' Width='40' ImageLeft='734' ImageTop='86' ImageWidth='40' in between first <static Align='Right' ... > and the </static> but the windows are still there.

Maybe I'll update the AutoHide-Patch to a GUI and add the option for a version without the Metro-Elements.

The skin looks great except for the unnecessarily big open, clock and volume buttons between the video window and the playlist. Is there an option to remove those buttons?

.... but thouse elements gives the skin the Metro-Look.

NickDaMark asked the same a couple of month ago.

Try this:
Open the VideoSkin.xml, remove the stuff between the <static Align='Right' ... >...</static> statement and replace the beginning of the tag with this code:
<Static Align='Right' Width='40' ImageLeft='734' ImageTop='86' ImageWidth='40' //leave the rest!

Yes, that's the problem.
Unfortunately there are no tutorials, guides or tools available.

The only way is... learning by doing.

// What software you use for creation your skins?
I'm using Notepad++ and Photoshop :-P

Mate, can you give this theme some flexibility? When I start the player, it cannot keep the options I've chosen... For instance, Window Size: 1280x720 & Window Position: Center. Also, it cannot keep the free video's aspect ratio...

For the custom window size... remove the ForceMinHeight='x' and ForceMinWidth='x' in the MainSkinArea tag from the video.xml.
Hmmm... the free aspect ratio is working for me!

Also, give some squared highlighting effect when I chose a file in playlist? Currently the video which is playing with the video I chose to highlight have the same colour... I'm afraid to press "delete" if I'm not sure which one I have highlighted for sure...
