It''s not a bad skin - I''d say that you''re going right way. But there are still a lot of things to do in order to make it usable.

Try to keep one thing in mind during developing: your skin must be very usable and intuitively clear to end user.

- It''s not clear that minus in left core is aimed to show hide different windows. It''s better to have separated button on the main window
- video window cannot be manuall resized
- video window cannot be move by just dragging it on any place, only thin top bar bar can be used for moving a window. otherwize just window resizing takes place
- video controls and video sreen are separted. this is commonly used practive and I really can''t understand why developers do this - this is very inconvinient. all video related features MUST be incopsulated into video window. BUT! Video window must not be overburden with all the video functions (there are many of them like Play/Pause, Constrast, Brightness, etc). In order to keep video free from this functions (as they hamper to watch the movie) you have to create something. Example is SASAMI player, where all buttons are shown when user moves mouse over the screen. This is very good idea of usability.

So, usability it the main thing!

its quite nice reeses, but its TINY. at higher resolutions it is really hard to click the right buttons. other than that, i can see what youre trying to do and i think the direction youre moving with your skins is a good one. well done.
