  1. Hi Potplayer users,

    I'm happy to announce that my skins will always be available to download here.

    Install: Just copy the dsf files you want to test or use in the skins folder under potplayer installation directory. Don't forget to install provided fonts on your system (just google how to install fonts on Windows if you're a very noob)

    There are English and French version and foreign users can now easily translate this skin.

    v3.0


    Playing file through detached playlist



    Advanced mode



    Audio skin


    Advanced mode



    Control box is translatable
    english

    french


    More screenshots of my PotPlayer version can be seen here


    As my [+] skin has evolved since the first release of my PotPlayer in French in 2011/07/25, I would appreciate that users give me a feedback by participating to the above poll


    Note 1: Tooltip on button may display as xxx | yyy. It means the button has 2 commands : left and right mouse click separated by |.

    Note 2: If current file info (video and audio codec) is not properly displayed, just check if you use the built-in splitter/codec to play the file. This should fix the issue.

    Translators: Just edit the PotplayerPattern.ini file and post it here.

    For those who want to make their own skins. Here are some basis:
    • dsf skins file are just zip file, so uncompress them to access their content
    • basically, you'll find xml & png files
    • xml files are like html+css files, they manage where elements must stand
    • to custom an existing skin see in xml file what png image it refers to display main area, playlist area, etc.
    • in png image, you'll find the skin buttons in different state, generally 4: normal;hover;pressed;... I don't remember if order is right, test it!
    • to refer to a specific button in your xml file, enter the coordinate (top left corner) of the normal state button you want to display and its size ( see other button in xml to see how it works). Generally, your image editor should display these informations in the status bar when you select an area. I use paint.net.

    Making a skin for PotPlayer is retro engineer a existent skin, connect your brain to high voltage power & go. Be patient & relentless. If I can do it, so can you.

    First of all: nicely-done job, I have to say.

    Even though I stopped using PotPlayer(Mini) months ago, I will try it again A.S.A.P. , because MPC-BE doesn't please me anymore, and besides, there are NO *major* differences between MPC-BE and MPC-HC i.m.h.o.

    For the time being, all I can say is, I like those custom fonts , and I think it won't be very difficult for me to change certain background colors to the ones which my eyes consider more appropriate.

    As for the page http://fred.gaou.free.fr/Potplayer/ ,

    you'd better update "Note 2", because of that hyperlink that leads to nowhere.

    And welcome to VH.

  4. I really line the V3 skin. Is there any way to make "advanced mode" persistent so I don't have to check the box every time?

    C'mon ! Do you really need advanced options every time you play a file? You're weird, but hey, i'm not judging.

    Download attachment and enjoy, unzip, etc. Advanced options will display while playing a file.

    Vote the poll.

    I rather liked v3 with advanced mode too, but may I ask what you use to edit this dsf format?I would rather wish to moved the play/pause/stop/previous file/next file buttons to middle.
