VLC has been a very functional media player with great UX since its very beginning. However, it's UI has not been changed much and does not look great on modern systems. After many years of development, VLC has been improved much but its legacy UI remained almost the same. Rivals of VLC currently have a much more modern look and this makes VLC fall behind of its rivals in terms of visual beautiness.

The ultimate goal is to make VLC stand out from its rivals regarding its look. This project consists of a set of contributions to VLC Qt GUI module for the purpose of renovating its UI / UX and helping transition from the old UI to the new QML based UI. The project is mostly focused on Playlist and Miniplayer parts of the new proposed UI.
