How can i handle to see the VLC playlist beside my main window?

Example: I have a bunch of movies which i created a playlist for. But on my 27" iMac, i don't want to see every movie in fullscreen. For that, i want to see my playlist beside my main window.

Is there a skin or a workaround to do this?

It is rather simple. The question is old but since I was just checking myself for the same problem and others might to.

Hit CMD+, to open the vlc preferences. Uncheck the "play video in main window" option. In the interface tab the one that usually opens first. Videos will spawn in a seperate window and the main holds the playlist.
