Winamp3 build 488 skin.Again updated! Thanks to all Winamp3 users for comments, criticizms, recommendations and suggestions. I tried to make this with as less as possible bitmap for minimum size (no bitmaps, no animated layers, no extra scripts) and simple but useful. I tried to force Winamp3 skining machine. A good effort to show what can Winamp3 skining machine does.

Minima - Featured Skin, April 3, 2003.

Staff review

Simple, but effective...

basic, yet appealing.


not working with v5.21 - it looks very nice but i can't use with winamp version 5.21 - April 11, 2009 by hakan engin

Fantastic Player - I have loaded this skin over the years whenever i loaded Winamp on my system and this skin was always my first download. Very clear and easy to use. Nice looking and very well built.Other skin designers should note the effort that has gone into such a usable and nice looking skin. There are many that are too over the top with graphics and are unreadable.Nice going Pertev.:o) - December 22, 2008 by Chris OBrien

The best... - The best, cleanest, smoothest, coolest compact player EVER!!! - Bad_Mojo88 - November 21, 2008 by E Dahms

Perfect skin - My screen resolution is only 1024x768px and this skin makes it possible to feal like having a greater resolutionTogether with this skin for xp; 155_milkydreams-1.0 it's double up on great :DChill and thanks again. - April 16, 2008 by Jonas Rasmussen

Small and light - Small footprint good for all size screens and full winamp setting and view. - September 13, 2007 by Sam Morris

almost perfect. - A damn near perfect skin, if only the rightmost of the second indicator digits in the main window didn't get half-hidden behind the progressbar when in time-remaining-mode. - August 18, 2007 by Johan T

I like it very much - - May 4, 2007 by Oleg Gumennikov

MINI BUT EVERYTHING - I really like this skin because it's very small on the screen. However, the function is complete. I like it! - January 14, 2007 by Basil Chou

clear and complete - The skin has got everything I need. It is straight forward and looks really nice. Thanks! - September 27, 2006 by Peter Kaune

very nice - very good :) - July 12, 2006 by Caudy Caudak

Minima: simply the best - One of the best skins ever. - June 30, 2006 by dIEGO P.

Simple, just how I like skins! - Nice, clean look without sacrificing functionality. Scaling and opacity functions are also very nice. However, I do wish you could customize the text on the windows to display something other than "Minima". Also, I miss the "File, Play, etc." menu. Other than those tiny gripes, it's a great skin! - June 1, 2006 by Melted Banana

My hunt is over - This is the best skin I've ever found, in all these years. I'm never changing it again. God bless you Pertev. - May 28, 2006 by Ricky Cornell

Simply Perfect! - Ive been looking for a skin like this, amazing I havent found it before. Its simple, readable, understandable yet stylish and functional! This one is going to stay on my player for a while. - February 23, 2006 by Dekoth _Smith_

Smart and stylish - It looks smart and easy to use. I don't like gussled up things. - December 16, 2005 by Alexey Klyukin

Smooth - Best skin the Internet has to offer. - December 12, 2005 by J H

Great stick mode skin. - With the equalizer and player side by side at the top of the screen Minima takes up less desktop space than MMD3 in stick mode and takes no more clicks to open anything than does MMD3. Very functional, easy to work with and nice looking. Super skin! - October 19, 2005 by Ray Evans

An excellent minimalist skin - Just what I was looking for -- a professional-grade skin with easy-to-see, easy-to-understand buttons. A lot of the skins are pretty gaudy, so I definitely appreciate it when developers go the other direction and make a quality minimalist skin. The only improvement I might suggest is changing the PLAY/STOP buttons (to the left of the play time) to red- and green- colored icons. On my current monitor's settings, it tends to get too crowded.... but besides that, I wouldn't change anything. - July 20, 2005 by DeathTo Spam

Great! - Some of the best skins i've seen! But the current position slider looks different than in the screenshot!? Very dark and no triangle at the end... Why? - July 19, 2005 by Solution Vega

Perfect - I love this skin. - April 25, 2005 by Scott Byrnes

extremely nice - like compact, it's a nice simple skin with everything going for it due to it's simplicity and clarity. The only thing that bugs me is that i like having a seeker in the windowshade of either the playlist or main window, which this aint got. but it's still very nice :) = = = - January 22, 2005 by despondentrock_tk __skatepunk_mp3s

Great! ...sort of - It's true, this is the only skin I ever use, I just think it's so damn sexy. I have however, noticed a glitch that bothers me to no end: I can't scroll the playlist with my mouse wheel. Ugh. Any other window works, but when I click the playlist it just works the volume. Oh well, I'm just anal, I'll keep using it anyway. thanks for the skin Mr. Erenberk! - January 1, 2005 by Daniel Malony

simple....yet Perfect - sometimes people do tend to go a bit overboard and this is simple and yet so sweetly constructed and visable "name of song" times of track and bitrate which can be a huge issue with alot of the theme i have gotten here.....ya put focus on what mattered now "your name o fancy trays and gadgets that are for extras ya can get thru menus anyway and made a very nice project :) ty made you my night - December 19, 2004 by Damien SatansSon

Absolutely perfect! - I'm certain that many people spend countless hours creating complicted skins, but for me, the beauty of this skin is it's simplistic, yet elegant design. Functional, compact, uncluttered and easy to read, this skin has quickly become my skin of choice. Kudos, and thanks to the author for sharing this masterpiece! - December 16, 2004 by Jeffrey Kreth

Small and fully of function! - When most of us listen to music on our computer, what are we doing? Usually something that doesn't involve looking at our media player. So why get a player that's all form and no function? This skin keeps my player taking up the top row of pixles along my screen. It's there when I need it, but never in the way. Yet I don't have to go hunting for the simplist buttons. It's all there in a simple, easy to use, easy to find manner. I can hack it up and move the parts around if I need to, I can resize the playlist window to my heart's desire. I don't need a fancy skin. I need something small and functional. That's exactly what I got with this skin. My only complaint is that there aren't enough colours. - December 12, 2004 by Deramin A

almost perfect - perfect for those looking for a fully functional skin while giving a minimum of screen real estate. the only thing I'd like to see is the file info take up the entire width of the window if visualizations (spectrum or osci) are turned off.. - November 18, 2004 by ivar v

Minima is Maxima - PRIMA!!! - October 26, 2004 by Alte Ente

Small, nice and effective - Great size, color and looks! - October 6, 2004 by ruben langerak

Super - It\'s AMAZING skin!!! It have my favorite size, my favorite color!!! (Sorry for my English). - September 17, 2004 by Aleksandr Korolev

small and cool - ; ) - July 6, 2004 by Durgonics J�nos

Damn Near Perfect! - ...BUT... the 'Time Remaining' feature doesn't work. As a frustrated amateur DJ, that is REALLY important! Still a sweet skin, tho! Keep up the great work! - July 5, 2004 by Rev. David Clark

Skin of the future - I've love it immediatly! - June 23, 2004 by Jessica Rattini

Wow - Just found this. Love it. Will be used as primary skin until the end of time. - June 8, 2004 by John Gill

AWESOME - The best skin out there, in my opinion (and from the skins I've seen.) This skin has it all, even the media library. And not only is it extremely functional, it is very well laid out and easy to use. On top of that, it looks good! what more can you want? - May 16, 2004 by Jack Attack

Make the main window look good if enlargened! - This skin sure looks great, and I understand it's made to be as small as possible. Anyway I'd like to be able to enlarge the main window without getting all buttons etc enlarged too - as it is now they look like "zoomed in" which is not very nice. As the other windows can be enlarged without problems I suppose this issue should be easy to solve. - May 3, 2004 by Love Eklund

perfect compact skin - great skin, very compact. functional, good-looking, and easy on the eyes. works for me! - March 2, 2004 by Mike Laflamme

Best skin ever :) - Great skin, exactly what is was looking for! No fenzy design just simple buttons, but still nice to look at. Great work! Thanks! - February 26, 2004 by Peter M�ller

Simple As It Should Be - Lovely simple, clean, and complete skin. Great work! - February 22, 2004 by Malte S

Good - Simple and cool - January 11, 2004 by Domas Dumse

Sweet - This is the only skin I prefer to use! Very functional and straightforward. One criticism: it needs a total play time indicator for playlists as well as the individual track times! Beyond this, simply excellent! - January 9, 2004 by Robbie Gregory

The Best ? - This is a good skin, except for one thing... You need to enable a double click for windows shade mode in anywhere of the skin, not only this button. - December 22, 2003 by Zatanus_Matrixx 666

Simplicity at its best - Very effective in keeping things simple. Overall it keeps the theme of keeping things to a minimal.. Great stuff. - December 18, 2003 by decrypt d

clean, simple, beautiful and awesome! - this skin is really nice. I've never see such a simple skin like this. It is better than MMD3 or other skins. Nice work! Keep it up! - December 13, 2003 by Ahmad Naim

VERY nice - wow, 52k and it looks great and everything. awesome job. - November 30, 2003 by jeremy gates

Perfect - This is a great skin, it looks sweat, it has the same features as the normal one and its size is perfect :) - November 2, 2003 by JoWie _

Simple and effective - Very Clean and yet is stylish. - October 17, 2003 by Joe Burns

Simple and Stylish - Great creation! - October 2, 2003 by linda scotti

Simple but great... - This skin is very simply but very effective. You can see all important functions at a glance. - September 24, 2003 by Ronny Siegert

Nearly Perfect Simplicity - This skin is great for users who don't want "All that jazz" and just prefer a very simplistic yet styled skin. The only thing I noticed that doesn't work is I cannot minimize/maximize the screens by double clicking as you can in the basic skin. - August 23, 2003 by Thru Cat Eyes

G R E A T!! - It's a GREAT and compact skin for Winamp3! It's VERY easy to use & it has a NICE look! - August 18, 2003 by Bernd Erbert

Simple, but effective - The staff reviewer said it best. One of my favorites. - August 16, 2003 by Eric Hysen

practical but nothing special - its easy and pleasant to use, but theres nothing special in the design. a little more imagination would be good. - August 13, 2003 by N. K.

Cool Like A Cucumber - This is one of the coolest mini skins i've ever downloaded - August 11, 2003 by Ricardo Heirs

WOW - looks amazing, can see all options. WOW - August 3, 2003 by traci ketchum

Simple and beautiful - It worked great, everything's easy to find and I love the different modes. It doesn't take up much space in your desktop. A must-have. - July 29, 2003 by Diana Arreaza

NICE - Simple and very nice - July 10, 2003 by Anish Kumar

Stays Crispy...EVEN IN MILK! - A smooth, crisp, well layed out skin. Doesnt overdue it. A must for functional skin fans! - July 8, 2003 by Blue Eagle

Tebrikler - Basarili bir skin olmus.Yndirdim ve kullaniyorum,tebrikler. - July 5, 2003 by Bulent Donmez

Simplistic yet Elegant - If you looking for a perfect skin to hide in the corner of your screen - this is it !!! Simple, intuitive, not-too-small yet small enough... What else can I say... I guess PERFECT - June 25, 2003 by Jerry Zak

minima - is fantastic the best - June 20, 2003 by mario rodriguez

My favorite so far! - I love this skin it is my personal favorite. It was the first I've downloaded so far & I came back to try out a few others, to see which is best and I kept coming back to this one. I looked at them all and I liked this the most. The coloring is very nice, everything is clear and functional. Everything is very smooth and efficient that I've noticed. And for people thinking it is too small, they need to set it to 150% or something, or get some glasses, cuz this is just the right size. - May 28, 2003 by Miss Deceptions

Where's it gone??? - When i first downloaded this skin I absolutely loved it, clean, functional, just the right size, and looks amazing, i thought i'd found the perfect skin. However for some reason it now refuses to show itself when i switch to it, I don't know if it's only me who has this problem, if not i hope it's fixed soon as this is the best skin i've seen yet. Had it not been for this fact, it would be a definite 5 plus! - May 28, 2003 by Colin Peden

Nick - its alright..but a little too small...other than that its pretty good - May 24, 2003 by David ensinger

and in this corner... - weighing in at 63kb...the best bang for the a very simple and compact mode...easy to use with no flashy,complicated or confusion...the new contender for all the "mini's"...let's give it up for "Minima". - May 21, 2003 by jerald deal

Clean, simple, - Big fan of minimalist skins and, in full mode and minimised, this sits nicely in the corner. Functional, clean, simple, unostentatious - everything a skin should be. - May 13, 2003 by Bob Boob

I LOVE THIS SKIN - I never EVER rate ANYTHING, EVER. But I HAD to tell you that I LOVE THIS SKIN! We definitely need more 'simple' looking skins without all that fancy stuff and messy colors. GOOOOOOD JOOOOOOB - May 9, 2003 by Jon Raven

Best Gawd Damn Skin Ever! - This skin kicks ass! All the features and buttons are easy to find and use. Minimized mode not only looks cool but give you all that you need. This skin is a class act and wont make your desktop look like some Win98 lamer ;) - May 9, 2003 by gakker .

GOD AMONG INSECTS - This is the best skin i've seen since the basic...or "default"...that's's just the best! - May 9, 2003 by Ben Langworthy

Simply Pleasant - Pleasantly Simple. Functional and easy to read. Comes with a few nice colors too. - May 6, 2003 by Jennifer Bowers

Simple - Sometimes I need a break from the other skins. I don't want to go back to the classic skin. This provides an alternative. Thanks! - May 4, 2003 by Planet Abyss

gratulations - the best skin i ever had ... thx - May 4, 2003 by Michael Hilscher

simple and bright - the skin is so simple and the color is bright, so it is easy to use anyway... - April 28, 2003 by david talalo

Simple & NICE - This is something simple BUT nice ! Everything you need is here. And it works perfectly. It is light. If you want something clear ... That's what U need ! - April 26, 2003 by Julien Lois

Minima - Will there be a Minima skin available for Winamp 2.91. I don't like 3 beacause a couple of features I use are missing from it. - April 25, 2003 by Brent Marginet

The easiest solution - As everyone else has said: "Round and simple". The blue color scheme matches well with my other programs and blue themed-Windows. You truly do deserve my five stars and a "Recommended by Polho" -stamp *insert smiley*. - April 24, 2003 by Henri Nykanen

greatest solutions combined!! - It's build like the ordinary winamp, but much more functions on display - but still very easy, and of course....VERY NICELY done!! I'm impressed* I've been looking for something very clean (not the rectangular types of skins that won't fit in to the screen anywhere!!!) And this...I'll use this for a very long time.....very clean - soothing and all...thanks man!!-whoever made it* - April 24, 2003 by chris just

SUPER - thank you - April 21, 2003 by URY URY_L

good - thank you~~ - April 17, 2003 by Su Karen

Minima - Slick, clean, smooth. Easy to find the buttons, it's very ergonomic. Something to replace the original skin. - April 17, 2003 by Max Payne

Very Nice, Very small - As a [email protected] user, I like skins that don't get in the way, but that I can use in "Always on top" mode. This does both. - April 15, 2003 by Damon Toal-Rossi

5 stars, dude - Pertev seems to have gotten hold of some kind of time travel technology. Pertev, bring some more of this futuristic stuff back with you next time. :) - April 15, 2003 by Adam Sinclair

greeeeeat!!!!! - Best skin which I've ever seen! congratulation - great job! - April 9, 2003 by natalie ladwein

Excellent - Absolutely brilliant. Crisp, clear, functional, solid and what I most want from a skin, minimalistic without compromising functionality. Well done. - April 9, 2003 by Bruce Swiegers

Very good! - This really is a good skin at all. It's simple and effective, with no capacity-trashing features. Why I ain't giving it 5 stars? Because there are too less colour themes between which you can choose. But great work, though! - April 6, 2003 by Michael Arnold

yeah, another kewl skin - smaller than Compact and just as cool! - April 6, 2003 by C H

Cool - Sorry, I'm wrong just now, it should be 5 STARS! - April 5, 2003 by Peter Pan

Clear, small, simple... nice! - Another clear, small al nice skin from Pertev (very similar to "Compact" skin). - April 3, 2003 by Ignacio Poletti

Good...Very Good - really love it... ordinary...but good...i mean very good....been looking everywhere for this type... - March 28, 2003 by Shin Wong

Dudsy! - Dude, you made it there where only MMD3 came... Excellente job dude! - March 28, 2003 by Alja? Dvor?ak

I love this - Will you have my children??? I love you but i am not gay - March 27, 2003 by James Chapple

Shiny - I don't know why I'm drawn to it. It's so minimalistic, so clean, so perfect. Great job! - March 26, 2003 by Tweak Bionic

Perfect! - PERFECT! just simply perfect!!! - March 24, 2003 by Debra B.

Don't like it, but love it - The skin is very ordinary. I mean just look at the screen shot. Ordinary. But strangely it's very good. Strangely it's very very attractive. I recommend this skin :) Try it. It will grow into you. - March 23, 2003 by Clanss :p

Awesome - Cleanest looking skin I have ever downloaded. Way to go man. I like the classic look and it looks great sitting in a corner. Only one thing Id like to offer up, make the scroll bar boxes a little bit bigger. The larger ones in the default skin are easier to grab. All around an excellent skin. - March 22, 2003 by marco polo

Not very creative - OK, it's clean, functional & appealing... but it looks more like a Winamp-2 skin than one for Winamp-3. Maybe a five-star skin it it was made for WA-2. - March 21, 2003 by Prashanth Srinivasan
