MPC-HC Flatro Theme

The MPC-HC Flatro Theme is a build on the Metro Toolbar Skin and includes additional changes to the MPC-HC GUI.



MPC-HC Flatro Theme Includes:
- New MPC-HC icon logo integrated into the mpc-hc64.exe and unins000.exe (see image title and top bar for example).
- All media file icons will be automatically replaced with the new logo.
- Added new metro/flat inspired icons to the bottom status bar. Includes new music/video file icon, CD/DVD icon, surround sound icon, and volume enabled and disabled icons.

Hope you enjoy!

Notes:
- Currently, the .exe replacement will only work for those who are running MPC-HC v1.7.3 x64 (these changes will not work for 32bit or older versions).
- Download also includes install instructions. Follow carefully.
- This is a work in progress. Expect more updates throughout the year.

Love the Flatro themed MPC, but WebM and MP4 are video files. Their icons show as audio-only.

This clapboard icon. I think I wanna marry it. So pretty!

Thank you SO MUCH! Also, for the icons! You're a genius, I love your work.

Also, I was thinking about trying to port your icons to MPC-BE in a dark-grey color scheme (MPC-BE has a slightly different icons dll structure).
Would you give me permission to do it, crediting you, of course?

Some tips to make mpciconlib.dll much smaller:
1) Use png compression for 256x256 icon.
2) Remove 128x128 icon. It is useless because Windows uses the 256x256 one for all larger views.
3) Remove 64x64 icon. Also not used by Windows.

Some video extensions you forgot:
amv, divx, rmvb, m2ts, ogv (ogg video), 3gp, dv, mxf, asf, bdmv (bluray index), mpls (blu-ray playlist)

Some audio extensions:
oga (ogg audio), opus

Playlists:
m3u, mpcpl

Some mistakes:
mka is audio
rm is practically always video
pls is a playlist file

Can you also add two generic icons for audio and video? Those are useful for labeling rare extensions.

Can you also add an archive with the .ico files? That allows building a custom dll.

Of course! Thank you! I'll work on it and ask for your final approval as soon as the port is finished!

I L-O-V-E the taskbar buttons and the playlist icon! Also, nice optimization of the .dll!

You should work on the seekbar if you have the time, it's the only thing non-Flatrofied now!

The MPC-BE seekbar is closer to a flat style, so maybe porting that to your version would be easier to work on? (also, the OSD menu with the close and lock buttons that hover on the top-right of the video on BE would be a nice addition, if Flatro-fied!) - I'm not a coder at all, so I'm sorry for asking things and not being of much help to execute it...

But I'm pretty sure the BE team would be glad to help you on getting the code resources to do it!

I'm not really sure how to say this exactly but you have no idea how thankful I am. I moved to BE a long time ago because I couldn't stand the 20 year old looks of HC and how you fixed it while keeping things clean and fast. Really, you're a blessing to this software!

MPC-HC Flatro Theme v1.3

@nautilus7, Thank you and if you have any feedback or suggestions, feel free to post them

@vBm, I'll be sure to add the requested file extensions from user Stanzilla in the next coming days. Thank you.

@Dark Eiri, Sounds great! I look forward to seeing your port I plan on expanding the icon library with any requested file extensions I receive from users. I'll have the .ico files available to you and anyone who would like to build their own custom lib.dll in upcoming Flatro Theme versions.

In regards to the seekbar customization, I've been researching how to change the look of the MPC-HC seekbar since I began work on the Flatro Theme. But according to MPC-HC's Project Manager

And if anyone considers doing that they might as well rewrite the gui in QT to make it not only faster but also completely skinnable (to the point that you could even change the gui to look like a star if you wanted to).
Since I am not very familiar with the programming languages used in MPC-HC (such as C++ etc), I would definitely need assistance from the MPC-HC project developers to make such a large undertaken happen.

But I will keep on improving the Flatro theme and maybe even compile a custom installer (instead of the end-user having to replace files from a pre-existing install).

Whenever someone asks me what is a great multimedia player for them to use, I always recommend MPC-HC. But unfortunately, the first thing I hear out of their mouths is how dated the GUI looks. This reason alone is why some users switch to other media players like VLC and Potplayer. But to me, because of MPC-HC's small footprint and overall playback quality (among many other advantages), I've always preferred MPC-HC over the rest. Especially with the addition of madVR.

In terms of customizing MPC-BE, I'll have a look into this media player when I have some more downtime.

I also want to personally thank you for your support, feedback, and kind words on my little side-project. I too have been a fan of MPC-HC since I discovered the multimedia player one year ago. Put off by its current GUI, it has led me to customize bits and pieces of the player to help give it a more updated/modern look based off of current metro/flat/semi-flat design trends.

Here are some elements and overall design changes I would love to integrate into MPC-HC's GUI with the help of the MPC-HC team...

You can find our devs on IRC ( #mpc-hc / #mpc-hc-dev at Freenode ) during evening hours in CET timezone. Feel free to come around.

btw. Armada is doing research on modernizing the GUI without the loss of simplicity and usability.

Thank you for the dev IRC information. I'll be sure to drop in during the evening (CET time) to talk about the possibility of updating MPC-HC's GUI and hear their input on the matter.

Thank you for the link to Armada's Github. Looks promising.

@twtrade:

I finished porting the icons to MPC-BE. Below there's an image of how they turned out - if I have your approval on them, I'll upload the .dll - can I call the set "Flatro Dark (twtrade's Flatro for MPC-BE)"? Or would you prefer to be credited as "bycycleestate", as on DeviantArt?



Also there's no problem if you don't like the results and don't want it to be public. If that's the case, I'll keep them for my private use only
