New version of my "Modern Cards" JRMC skin

New version of my "Modern Cards" JRMC skin

Yesterday, I completed a new update of my "Modern Cards" skin for JRiver Media Center. It contains some bugfixes and tweaks, and also introduces several new styles to choose from.

The new styles you can choose from are as follows:

  • Ubuntu (based on Ambiance).
  • OSX (Yosemite-ish, but dark).
  • Windows 8 (same as the original Duo version, but with Windows 8 window buttons).

I'll probably add a couple more in a future update, but these will have to do for now.


As always, you can download the skin from my DeviantArt page.


None of my skins supports Retina/HiDPI display settings. You can find an explanation for why that is in this post I did a while back.

  • 2014.05.01: Added a new duo-toned version of the skin, with a dark player- and bottom bar. Also tweaked the scrollbar handles in the original bright version.
