Don't mean to resurrect a dead thread, but just for some closure: I finally managed to finish coding this skin for Plex and dubbed it quicksilver. More details can be found over at the Plex forums: Quicksilver Skin . More info on the 19th page.
So I've been working on this skin over on the Plex forums for about two months and I thought that I might as well share what I've got so far with everybody here. It's still very early in development but the skin is being built on top of Wir3d's empty skin, so most of the basic functionality should be there at the very least.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. =)

The goal of the project to create a slick and coherent media center interface that can be comfortably viewed on hd tv's from across the room on the couch without super-human vision.
Looking for help
I'm looking for a talented artist familiar with UI and icon design to help out. If you're interested either post or send me a pm.
I want a view that does x or y
Any ideas for new views are always welcome. A carefully thought out and original request will always have a higher chance of being taken up by the project than just saying that a view looks cluttered and needs to be changed.
I found a bug!
Keep in mind that Lithium is still very early in its development and entire windows have yet to be skinned yet. However if you find a showstopper of a bug like the selection getting stuck in a element or overlapping unreadable text make post with "[Bug Report] Selection enters but doesn't leave scroll bar" in bold at the top. That'll get my attention fast =)
I want to make a mod
More to come on this shortly. Feel free to pm me or post if you have any questions.
- Amet's Opensubtitles/Plugin Settings
- Francyboy's EagleEye mod
- Yes, I know it has a horizontal navigation. Aeon, Mediastream, and Minimedia have all been influences for me. =)
- I have no idea why the ken burns animation on the home screen is so stutter-prone in xbmc when it runs smoothly on plex, I'll look into it.
