I'm sorry about my careless...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[2014-03-31]Finally, I have finished the 'tst' 2.0 at the end of March 2014.
Two years ago I submitted this skin's first version on DA, and I got about 10 thousand downloads during these time, it is so nice to have you guys like my work, thx all of you.

And now I'm bring you the latest version of theSimpleThing, I redesigned all the icons, style, and layout,  to make it looks better, and now it contains the controlbox and attachable playlist.

Please do the following things in your potplayer to make sure you have the best view of my skin :
0.Update your potplayer to the newest version
1.Choose theSimpleThing2 in skin list
2.
Choose the 'Direct3D 9' in 'On Screen Control'
3.Change skin transparency to 100% in 'On Screen Control'
4.Enjoy.


Feel free to comment, I'm glad to receive your suggestions.

P.S.  After two years, my English still sucks.

In the newest version of Potplayer (1.7.457), the text above the seekbar displays in black instead of white. See: vgy.me/z5RrCJ.png. I'm using Black Small [win]. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks, love the skin !

Is it still black in direct 3D mode? Normal mode is not recommended.

Could you please update your skin so it displays the default scrollbar in the "Preferences" menu? I've tried messing with the XML but nothing seems to work. Thanks in advance!

Sorry but I can't, the whole potplayer ui system use only one scrollbar style at once, so if I use default scrollbar style, it will looks wired in the playlist.
But you can do it by delete the ScrollBar.bmp in the skin file, it's not controlled by xml at all.

While playing audio is it somehow possible to make this skin collapsed like in your preview picture (under "...with a small icon edition" text)? I can't get the skin any smaller than 712x400 pixels for some reason.

Sorry but I didn't make music mode for this skin, 712*400 is the smallest size I set for my skin.
the picture under the text is only a control bar preview.

Hey! i really love the skin, however whenever i maximise, minimise or fullscreen, this weird static pixel effect appears on the top window bar. Sometimes duplicate media buttons that dont work appear there instead. Can this be fixed? i have tried a few different versions of the skin and they all do the same thing, and i have also followed all your instructions. Thanks in advance.

Hey, as far as I know, using 'layered windows' will bring some weird pixels on the top bar.
Please be sure you are using 'Direct3D 9' in 'skins -> on screen control',

It looks like the skin didn't work at all, try to download the skin file again, make sure you have the latest potplayer version from potplayer.daum.net . And try to reset all potplayer settings to default.

作者flydonkey你好,我非常喜欢您制作的这款皮肤。
这里报告一个小BUG。
在Direct3D 9模式中,当鼠标移向视频上边缘时,在出现上边框(带有_ 口 X的那个)时,整条上边框中往往会附带出现一些类似花屏的杂乱图案,或是杂乱无章地出现一些该皮肤其它部分的元素(如文件标题、其它按钮)。
在选择“不使用”图层式皮肤输出时没有这个问题,pot自带的默认皮肤也没有这个问题。
如果这确实是一个小BUG的话,如方便恳请作者能否修缮一下。
非常感谢!

另外这边尝试了目前最新的PotPlayer 1.6.60216,不过在Direct3D 9模式中并没有改观。

Your skin is just incredible man. And I can't believe your still replying to comments about it two years after you released the latest version. That's. Amazing.

I am running Black[noBorder] with Direct3D 9 turned on. It's stunning!

Problem is, I'm using a huge 'ole 50" TV at 1080p resolution, and so the text for me seems really small. Is there any way to increase the size of the text that displays file name and duration above the seek bar?

I have tried everything lol. I did quite a lot of googling before I ended up on your page. Under (General) I increased Navigation, OSD Messages and Dialog Box. Then I went under (Playback) and increased font size for Playlist too! Nothing works :'(

:iconflydonkey:
flydonkey Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2016   Interface Designer
The font size is defined by the skin files, I think it works right but because you are using a large size tv so it seems small.
I suggest you to modify the skin files by your own need, change .dsf into .zip and unzip it you can find the xml file, try to read it and modify the font size in it, until you get the right font size for you.
I haven't update it for two years , it makes me feel guilty, I'm planning on make something new these months, thank you for your support!

Search for all the 'CMD_TITLE_MESSAGE', 'CMD_CURRENTTIME_MESSAGE', 'CMD_TOTALTIME_MESSAGE', and change the parameter of 'FontSize'

Thanks so much for help!

I've made the changes I want to the xml file, but the title/times are being cut in half. The bottom portion of their text doesn't show up. ---> I thought this was because the Timebar was blocking them, so I lowered the bar. It hasn't helped though.

There is a bunch of empty space between the Timebar and the text but it's still cutting it all in half. Any ideas what's blocking it?

I doubled the size from the original 12 to 24.

Is there a way to disable the text that appears when you hover over buttons, like when you hover over the "Play" button a boxed text appears saying "Play." It would be great to have an option to disable the hover text if it is not already possible.

Second thing, in your Windows Framed tst skins, is it possible to make the "Skins>Hide main window skin while video screen is active" option work? When I have that option turned On, it still shows the windows border during playback, it would look great seamless if that option worked.

thank you so much, this is a great modern skin!

flydonkey Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2016   Interface Designer
For the first question, yes you can turn off 'Show tooltips' in Setting->General to make that happen.
the second one, that option is not for 'Direct3D 9' mode, disable 'On screen control' and turn on 'Hide main window skin while video screen is active' again then you can see the option works.

great, first answer for my 1st question worked fine. thank you

2nd question, I followed your directions, but it still doesnt hide it. And it no longer makes the bar at the bottom transparent since you have to disable the Direct3d 9 unfortunately..

OH I see what you meant, I meant for hiding the Windows 10 bar at the top that has the Minimize, Maximize, Close options, I want that to hide when the Video Screen is active if even possible, thanx !

Hey, this skin is amazing! Thank you!

One small thing, I was wondering if the code can be changed so that the controls appear when the mouse moves anywhere and not just when you hover over controls? Like the youtube player.

Otherwise it's perfect!

This is defined by the program itself, not the skin, but I think I can try some trick to make that happen, MAYBE I'll try it in next version, thanks for your suggestion!

Simply, the best skin. 
Until I started searching for HEVC/x265 (30|60fps) video smooth playback. And I found madVR rendered.
But here comes some issue, seems it uses Direct3D to render video, and OSD no longer available. It works, but no control elements were shown. 
So now I'm using "Use Layered Windows". And by using this method, i got some small issues with skin. 
i.gyazo.com/6c59fb565f2d6fd18b…
Question - can these problems be fixed?

Maybe soon I will stop playing with these 4KHEVC videos, and bring default renderer to use this glorious skin. =)

:iconflydonkey:
flydonkey Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2016   Interface Designer
I played some x265 videos before and the skin in Direct3D didn't show any problem, but I delete these videos after testing, so I can't test it again right now.
I think the render and the codecs of video won't affect the skin, so MadVR and x265 can't be the problems here. but change render during the playback can cause some issues with skin display, so try to avoid that or restart your potplayer after you made some change in settings.
From your description I believe it's a potplayer's bug, try update to the latest version?

Codecs wont affect, madVR rendered could. I think.

Direct3D 
madVR rendered disabled - skin visible
madVR rendered enabled- skin invisible

So I came to the decision, will use madVR on HEVC videos, and default with the rest.

I'm using MadVR on all the videos and the skin is working, maybe the splitter is the problem here ? try to use default splitter ?

With default skin, I get same issue - invisible skin in Direct3D mode. 
Can you export and share your player settings ?

UPD

Seems it works.
1) When I use renderer Madshi Video Renderer, all stuff works. 
2) When I use renderer - Auto, and madVR added in Filter Priority (Overall), nothing works.
Second option, in my opinion isn't correct method to use madVR.

*I'm new with these filters/splitters/decoders/codecs.

Skin visible, but there is some frame drops when I trigger skin to show.

:iconflydonkey:
flydonkey Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2016   Interface Designer
I highly recommend you to reset your settings to default, then do not use any filter priority method, in my experience it cause a lot of problems, just select MadVR in the render list and it will work.
By the way I'm using potplayer and k-lite codec pack to play my videos, do not change any settings that you don't really understand, in fact, to use default splitter and lav codecs and Madvr doesn't have to change so many settings.
