I am working on a new skin for 1.24.2 Instead of manually taring up the skin every time I make changes, I am going to use git. So, if you want to try out the skin, you'll need to change into your zm/skins/ directory and clone my git repo:
While the original skin works just fine, I am gearing this skin towards end-users who are likely familiar with commercial DVRs and as such are expecting something else from the console. I want a clean, consistent design. I am removing a lot of the less-frequently used features and also removing other features in place of configuring them as mostly commonly used.

It obviously needs a lot of work - but what do you all think?
Personally, I like being able to see the actual camera (with a live snapshot), and then having the ability to click on it, to launch the larger view. This is also less confusing, as the events and monitors are now separated.
The individual monitors are contained in a div that is float:left, so that if you have too many cameras, they automatically overflow to the next row, and adjust to the size of your screen.
Ideally, you would be able to specify an option, which would determine the size of the thumbnails.
Comments / Criticism / Recommendations please.

How hard is it to ...
How hard is it to make the background black and add an image to the default skin of zm?
Haven't had time to work on this until recently, but I have made some progress and am wondering if anyone is interested. You can view a screenshot here
The monitors in the main console can either be shown as a live feed (similar to some DVR solutions (like the montage window)), and will display at the FPS specified for that monitor, or as a single image, which will refresh at whichever interval you have configured for your selected bandwidth setting.
The monitors are currently set to a fixed width, though with some additional interest, this could become a configurable option. The only changes to ZoneMinder that I've had to make so far are to console.php and console.css
The main downside to this is that there will be an extra load on the server when using the live-feed option, due to the zms processes that will be continuously running when the console is open.

Please post the skin. I was just about to start on the same thing, and decided to search and see if anyone else had done this.

Thanks for creating this I hope other will do the same so we can get a good collection of interfaces.
Honestly the reason most people can't figure out the normal interface is simple because it looks like a terminal program and it keeps it simple. Which workes for me but kudos for making a average joe interface.
