    anyway to stop a song in RR?

    I'm running Iphone skin RR and I noticed that I can't really stop a song from playing. there is always a song either paused or playing.

    I ask because when I choose a video to play, and then close off the video, the song that I had chosen before seems to already be playing in the background. (even though I can't hear it)

    It's not really a big deal because I have a xp2600 and 1 gig of ram so I can run a bunch of crap at same time.

    but there has been other times where i'd like to stop a song and not just have it paused.

    is this only an Iphone skin thing, or all RR? (i've never used RR before except for on iphone skin)

    This is a skin thing.. there's a "STOP" command you can add to any skin.. by just making a button for it.. or create a gesture/hotkey etc for it.. the BMV2 skin has a stop button for instance.. but RR should stop the playback of the song when you launch the video player, and resume it "relatively close" to where it was when you first got into the video section. I'd say, if it was actually playing, you'd hear it cause RR does NOT mute winamp while in playing videos (it really just stops it).

    ok, thanks.

    maybe because my computer is powerful that it starts the song back up so quickly that I just assumed it was in the background.


    thankyou for your info that other RR skins have a stop button.

    i really like the Iphone skin because it looks great with any background picture I put in it.

    do all RR skins let you change the background pictures easily as Iphone skin?

    There are a couple.. just do a search for "transparent" in the skins section.. DigitalFX and Shock seem very popular, and there's a new LSX skin coming out with that too.. they all tend to look really nice due to the level of "personalization" possible.. plus, when you get bored with a background, you can just change it..
