Create your own VLC skin with VLC media player Skin Editor

There exists a program that enables you to create skins without any deep knowledge how skins are made up exactly.The VLC Skin Editor aims at giving designers an easy opportunity to create skins for the VLC Media Player. Until now skin designers had to have knowledge of the VLC Skins2 XML System to create their skins. Now they have an easy alternative: The WYSIWYG VLC Skin Editor.
