    cool winamp skin

    Found this cool winamp skin, works pretty good in the car too.

    you have to scale all the windows to about 200% or so to fit your LCD screen. Ive been using it for about 2 days trouble free. Its about 90% effective for incar use. Only issues i have is how to scale the scroll bars in winamp (anyone know how to do this?).

    I haven't found out how to increase the size of the scroll bar but i did find this out:

    To change the font size in the playlist editor so its something touchable, go into winamp.ini and locate
    pe_fontsize=11
    change that to about 20 or whatever, it works like a charm!

    i actaully don't like that. i have two favs. HAL eye and Lounge. Those offer the biggest and simplest controls. instead of just every button thrown onto a 4x7 rectangle.

    I found that MMD3 skin cool, but it's too slow and cluttered for CarPC use. Does anyone know of a skin without buttons, just music info/vis? And preferably with high contrast, since I will be using a composite LCD with no touchscreen (I'll use IR remote control)...

    Maybe I'll just design one matching my VW mk4 color scheme (actually there is one VW mk4 skin which is great, but it's a version 2 (classic) skin)...

    Winamp 5.03 takes 8 seconds to launch with MMD3 skin in the 1GHz Celeron notebook I am testing skins at (I'll be using a C3 800MHz EPIA on my carputer), while Winamp launches in 1 second with the classic skin and 4 seconds with the modern skin. I think that makes the skin comparatively slow, whatever machine I use.

    I have just tried Hal Eye and Lounge, but I am a traditional man myself

    hum, i guess it is slow then. 8 sec isnt all that bad, you should hear music playing before the interface is loaded though. After all the skins ive been through, im finding that the default modern skin is good enough, and in a lot of respects better than any of the others as far as in the car is concerned.
