    Recommend a good winamp skin with big buttons

    Hi
    I have always been using WMP for my main computer, and I am also using WMP for my carpc. However, it is a bit difficult to operate WMP in the car environment since WMP has very small buttons. I could not find a good WMP skin with fairly large buttons. Now I am thinking maybe I should try using Winamp in my car. After a bit of searching, I still cannot find the perfect skin to use for winamp. I am curious. For those who use winamp in their carpc, what skin are you using?

    I think most of us running winamp are using a front end program like roadrunner to control it.

    Try hitting ctrl+D. It will double the size of the buttons.

    If you run the 'modern skin' your able to scale the window to the full screen. Go to preferences > Skins > Modern > 'Link all windows in all skins' (change that slider to make it bigger)

    Smile Winamp Triton Skin

    I have been looking for the same thing for a while now. The best winamp skin for button size so far is the TRITON winamp skin. Bare hand use is perfect but with gloves on certain button area is still on the low side. If they would have made all the buttons the same size as the PLAY/PAUSE button of this skin, this would have been the perfect winamp skin.

    I am using a 7" lliput touch screen

    Searching for that huge winamp button skin that does not exist lead me to design the winamp skin myself. I am using a 7" touch screen. This WAL displays title, album, group permanently without using the playlist. Volume is not installed but for that I use my car amplifier.

    http://www.geocities.com/apostasic/c...in/hkcarts.zip

    Download and nename the extension from ZIP to WAL. For some geocities does not allow WAL extension.

    .... And for "Enforcer"'s benefit, in winter when it is -20 you have gloves on your hands not too mention people using driving gloves for high speed driving, can't believe I have to explain that ....
