Thanks for upload your skin, Zacca.
It seems like you have spent some time working with skins. Maybe you have some suggestions of how to improve the skin system?

This skin is not all what i wanted to do....
I wanted to add, near the video codec, the audio codec and the number of channel of the first stream but i failed.

A good idea to make all graphically better is to associate a picture to the codec.

Some other idea is:
To use the fields more than once
To use all the fields justify left center right

For now it's all
Thanks to you  :D

I like all Zacca's suggestions. But I think what's needed most at this point is some good documentation. Minor tweaking is not too difficult, but the learning curve for building a skin from scratch is rather steep. The fact so few users post skins or ask questions suggests not many are even trying.

As a starting point, I would suggest a brief overview of how the whole system works, plus a comprehensive listing of all the commands available, their syntax and where they can be used. Some instruction as to the necessary structure would be helpful as well. Not being a programmer, I'm easily confused about how to structure rows and columns to get the result I want.

With such technical documentation in place, users could help by providing instructions an examples for how to do specific things.
