Enhances how Winamp docks to top/bottom of the screen by giving it eXclusive desktop space. Kinda like how ICQ docks.

I'd like to call it eXclusive docking. It makes Winamp "push" down/up all maximized windows when it is docked to top/bottom of the screen and hog that part of the desktop so further maximized windows won't go underneath it. It becomes like a "solid" part of the desktop (something like the taskbar). It's similar to the way ICQ docks itself.It's fully customizable. You can turn on/off docking for top, bottom, or both, while having complete control over how many pixels high of the desktop it should hog in each mode (look at screenshot). It's also very smart. It'll get out of the way when Winamp is hidden or not docked to top/bottom and can detect switches between normal and winshade modes, responding to them properly.That's all it does.. I hope some people find it useful =) btw this is my first attempt at writing a Winamp plugin. -Lavashaq

Docking plugin to help organize your desktop

Only works for the main winamp window, so this won't work if you have the PL, EQ, or MB attatched. Useful for dealing with desktop window clutter. For those familiar and happy with the way ICQ docks, then you'll probably like this as well.

Video - Have you seen how Windows Media Player docks in the task bar and a little window pops up so you can watch videos. That would be a great feature to add to this plug-in. - October 15, 2009 by egsays


can't use w/ Modern Skin - Really great, exactly what I was Searching for. It just too bad that we can't use it with the modern skin (v5)docked. Well, if it's possible, I didn't find how... - March 28, 2004 by MatP P


request for new feat. - if you could make it possible to dock winamp to the side of the screen like ICQ can it would be cool. Else it is a cool plugin - July 31, 2002 by Butter Fly


Yes! - I emailed Winamp about this last year! Great job, wonderful, now I don't have to minimize Winamp when I can't read the IE/Word/etc. status bars :-) - May 25, 2002 by Andrew Conkling


Woohah!! - Using Xdock 24/7 for the last month or so, docked to the top, can't live without it. :D - March 14, 2002 by BillionPa BillionPa
