    Keeping RR on Top pf WinAmp and Skype

    I was trying the WebRadio plugin but half of the time, WinAmp loaded on top of my RR skin (Reborn), on an XP PC. I was testing Skype and I think the same thing happens too.

    It is actually in the RR configuration. You can edit it with the config tool, or manually edit the rr.ini file:

    [Audio Player - Player]
    Player=Winamp
    PlayerPath=
    HidePlayer=False
    ClosePlayerOnExit=True
    ExitMute=False

    I see it now. I had the Audio Player App set for Windows Media Player since I only planned to use Winamp for WebRadio. It was only when I changed the Player App to Winamp did the other options appear. Of course, there's no need for me to stay with Windows Media Player so.

    I'm just wondering about the main Skype page when Skype is launched. Should I launch it separately first rather than letting RR launch it by being triggered via the RRSkype plugin ?

    Unfortunately the RRSkype plugin will no longer work. It was written to work with an older version of Skype that had an API / way to access it functions outside of the actual Skype interface. When Microsoft purchased Skype, that ability was removed.

    Also, the older versions of Skype will no longer connect or work (I tried that route )

    Eh ? It certainly pops up with the warning to allow RR to use / work with Skype and retrieves all of my contacts and my account balance. So everything looks like it's OK

    Hmmm I wonder if that is because you are using XP. Skype refuses to work with RR on Windows 8.1. I went with 8.1 as the Samsung tablet I have is running it, and allows me to use the modern / metro apps.
