Where can I find VLC skins that support the laptop media buttons, fullscreen controls and Windows Aero controls? Thanks.

    Working on the same question.  Did you ever get a satisfactory solution?

    The default look does have full screen controls and the media buttons work fine. Also when I move the mouse over the VLC icon in taskbar I get the Aero preview with pause/fwd etc buttons like like WMP.

    However, as soon as I try a skin all these disappear.

    I use the latest version (1.1.8) the no-install zip package

    What do you mean by Windows Aero Controls?

    VLC does have Full Screen Controls by default (only visible on mouse hover) and the Media Buttons need to be assigned within the Settings (if they don't work by default).

    Skins only change the appearance of VLC and all it's controls, not the features themselves.
