VLC Is Better By Default – Best Skin For Mac OS X

VLC is the best cross-platform media player, period. Even though it includes great features, Mac users don’t like the default skin. User Damien created a fully Snow Leopard compatible skin for VLC media player from ground up. He named it VLC Is Better By Default(long name, eh?).

It has both an eye-candy interface and integrates better with both Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard. Have a look at it’s skin in the screenshot below:

The buttons, interface, and practically everything is redesigned and fits far better now. Mac users who are long annoyed by the default skin of VLC can give this a shot. No doubt they will love it.

It works with Mac OS X 10.4 and up. Enjoy!


  1. Hi folks! You’ll be happy to know that there is now a way to use skins — or themes — with the Macintosh version of VLC. However, there are currently only a few skins available for the Mac version of VLC. I’ve confirmed that they work with VLC 1.0.5 on Snow Leopard.

    You can find more information regarding skins for VLC on the Macintosh on the VideoLan website at the following URL:


    I hope that the above info is helpful to some of you.
