Featured Skin, March 27, 2003.

Winamp3 build 488 skin. Again updated! Thanks to all Winamp3 users for comments, criticizms, recommendations and suggestions. 4 in 1. Player, eq, playlist, AVS. I tried to make this with as less as possible bitmap for minimum size (no bitmaps, no animated layers, no extra scripts) simple but useful like Minima. I tried to force Winamp3 skining machine. A good effort to show what can Winamp3 skining machine does.

Compact - Featured Skin, March 27, 2003.

Staff review

looks basic,

but is actually really nice.


He does it again ! - Very nice looking skin again Pertev. Nice idea to try to keep it all in one screen area instead of multiple screens. Now I dont know whether to use minima or this one !!Great work mate.....keep it up.:o) - December 24, 2008 by Chris OBrien

The best skin I've ever tried! - So perfect! It is one of the few skins with integrated avs... really easy to use, and although its not too unique looking, it is certainly unique in its awesome AWESOMENESS!No other skin is good enough for my winamp after this one! - February 25, 2008 by L T

my two cents.... - I keep trying different skins, but nothing satisfies like this one! thanks so much for what I think of as the perfect skin.` - March 16, 2007 by pam satterthwaite

This is the best skin i ever saw after Winamp Classic - Everything i want is in it. Simple and useful. I like skins not degrading full usability of Winamp. That's one of them. You've done a great job. - June 18, 2006 by Lord Gauron

I love it - Its great and practical. the picture you have here is a litle diffrent from the final verson, but its still great If you plan to make an new verson, i have some ideas. More color themes, maybe a new modern look...and the function to turn the AVS area into Video. - May 21, 2006 by Sandar Kleven

gets the job done! - very compact, gets the job done (playlist, equalizer, function buttons all in one window.) great stuff... been using it for years. - May 12, 2006 by peter nguyen

5/5 - I have always doubted that a compact winamp with static windows could be good. This proved me wrong :). First of all, it has the perfect size and each button is positioned perfectly. the AVS window is smoothly integrated and suddenly seems like something that should be there like a VU and not just a CPU killer. The only thing I can complain about is the rounded edges, but I say that to everything :). - March 29, 2006 by Divo Blaze

compact - ola - September 9, 2005 by cris fresi

My fav! - This is my favourite skin because its all together in one component. Its small and doesn't get in my way, is not clunky, and has everything I look for in a skin when it comes to Winamp. The ONLY complaint I have is that I wish there were more colour themes to choose from. Thats it! Good work on this one. - June 26, 2005 by Duck Cool

Compact - this skin was designed very well. It does exactly what i want and doesn't leave a mess when you want it to grow ;) - April 18, 2005 by nick morzov

very very nice - nice and small. and everything on the skin is clear. that is an awesome skin. how skins should be. --- - January 24, 2005 by despondentrock_tk __skatepunk_mp3s

cool skin - this is a really cool skin, everything you need is here in one resizable screen. Also it\'s easy to use - October 10, 2004 by wei zhao

Nice, very nice! - THis thing roks! it has everything that i want on one sceen, but remains unimcumbered. - March 25, 2004 by Tim Catalano

Great. - I can safely say that this is my favourite skin. Ever. - March 23, 2004 by Aquatakat the Kat

Awsome! - This this is Awsome! i have 2 Skins! The MMD3 and this great Awsome Skin! Thats All Keep up the good work. - January 28, 2004 by Brian Onofre

Great, but... - Good news first, this skin kikcs ass. And then the bad news. When I try to scroll the playlist up and down, volume increases/decreases. Is there some option to change this? Or can you fix it to the next version maybe? - January 25, 2004 by Olli Saukkonen

PERFECT - The shade mode is *perfect*. Everything there, easy to read and use, together. I editted the normal mode to get rid of the equalizer and AVS, and let the playlist width resizeable, and then the normal mode was *perfect* too. - December 1, 2003 by sss sss

Keythumper - I rotate my skins once in a while so that I don't get bored with any, But this one is fast becoming one of my favourites - November 27, 2003 by John Todd

It is compact &tidy ! - I like the skin because it is compact & tidy:) - November 25, 2003 by Iyad Mizwaruddin

COMPACT IZ COOL - IT IZ COOL - November 24, 2003 by Desmond Mason

Great! - simply great! all in one!!! :] - October 19, 2003 by Leandro Ardissone

Awesome - The only thing keeping this from getting 5 stars (and this is nitpicking) is the lack of tool-tips for every button and the inflexibility of the visualization window. If that window could be used for video too, this skin would be amazing. That said, it'll stay on my desktop for a long time. - October 7, 2003 by Newton Jennings

easy to understand - pretty nice, it's easy to see. but you don't get the option of hiding the equalizer or the playlist. - October 7, 2003 by kko n

Stylish, user-friendly and resizable - This is fantastic! I love the clarity, the detail and that all options are available from the one window. Also you can resize to remove the AVS screen or enlarge the menu window. It's well thought out, intuitive and very easy to use. Five stars! - September 30, 2003 by Iain Templeton

Cool - Wow, this is the best W3 skin i've seen yet. The layout is awesome and the little shrinky button to make it small enough to be out of the way is useful too. I'd really like to see the equaliser able to be closed and the playlist to take up the space where the eq was... i dont use the eq, and i would sure find having a large playlist in there good. Other than that, perfect :D - September 29, 2003 by me myself

great - easy to use, i love it, cosmetically okay, just one thing, the color themes are a bit boring - September 21, 2003 by joe groves

Sweet - I like the built in playlist and visualation. In the expanded mode, it's kind of bulky, but in the smaller mode, it's compact and easy to use. The only reason I didn't give it 5 is because it's not as aestetically pleasing as others I've seen. It's still a well planned and executed skin. - September 21, 2003 by Dante _

Sweet!!!! - One word:Sweet I mean in this catagory this skin rox! - September 16, 2003 by Fredrick Galoso

Best Compact Skin EVER! - I love this sin, it is just great! it is small so it doesn't take up all your desktop yet has every feature you could ever want! and with the "Show Only in system tray" option it is your best bet! - September 7, 2003 by albert lewis

its sorta forcing - it forces you to use the visualazation'ism :) anyways, it forces you to have that and so because of that it jacks up CPU usage, and if your like me, i play games and winamp at the same time, and i need all my CPU usage, and winamp 3 in general takes a lot, but i can handle it because if its not a super tough skin its only 3% cpu usage adn this skin and the visualazation forces more cpu usage and that really sucks like this skin and the color options sorta suck too there are only a few and they are pretty shitty, i dont think this really shows what the new winamp 3 can do i think it just shows how much winamp 3 can be demoted also like that otehr skin i ran across haha it got a 5 and full and perfect by the winamp people and the users it got like 1 star because i think the admins at winamp did it accidentally because the one right above it got a full and the same review, so thats why i think thats why it got such a good rating and someone said in spanish that it is an isult to winamp, im not saying this is an insult, it just sucks and for the L33T language people, it sux0rz yessum - September 3, 2003 by Adam m

Freaking Awesome! - This is the greatest skin ever. It is the only one that I use. It automatically has the playlist built right in, which is a great feature. It is very eyecatching... Great Job Pertev! - August 31, 2003 by Shasta Kurtz

Best skin yet! - Great color, easy to read, and the best layout. This is by far my favorite skin. It looks alot like a tascam 8-track, which is awesome. I like to drag the left side over to get rid of the visualizations. Thanks for thinking of that! Pertev has a great eye! Keep up the great work! Many thanks! - August 13, 2003 by James O

Completely complete!!! - Nice look, smooth feel. Everything is there, no submenus needed. Finally something with vision! - August 9, 2003 by Bom Bolena

Its ruined my winamp! - Its completely mucked up my winamp. I can't play anything, its stuck on the settings menu, and it won't let me change skins. - July 13, 2003 by Amy Garrard

Same - Great! Mini AVS is hot! its small not much RAM, and still rox! The MMD3 of Functionality! Just enable us to disable the miniAVS 4 wen we r doin otha stuff, like surfin the winamp site - June 22, 2003 by Estepha Francisque

almost perfect! - overall, a great skin. but why is there no way to disable the visualization and still keep the main window open? i was going to give it 5 stars without blinking, before i noticed this omission. also, some buttons are missing tool tips. looking forward to more simple and functional skins from you! =) - May 31, 2003 by K. Shier

Grrrrreeeaaat - This is absolutely excellent!! Everything is there and sooo compact. If that's what your looking download this - May 26, 2003 by P M

Perfect - i like everything on screen at once and for it to fit the screen perfectly... at last i have found my perfect skin - May 15, 2003 by Metin B

bobo - good enought - May 13, 2003 by babo babo

Great Skin!! - Love the concept!! Great skin! Keep up the good work! 70 - May 11, 2003 by Gunnar Schwede

Best One!! - This skin is great!! It has everything that you need and it is east to read and follow everything! It is a sleek design and I am so happy with it! Won't use anything else... Awesome job! It needs 10 stars... - May 10, 2003 by Bianca Sprague

Most excellent - I love this!!!! it's almost like WMP. When I want winamp open it's all right there which suits me cause I don't need these itty bitty things. Thats what minimize and winamp agent is for. - May 8, 2003 by Jennifer Bowers

Nice change - I think I had an old version or something... recently I gave a review asking for the visual to be part of the main window instead of video... seems you changed that, so I re-downloaded it and now It is a 12 outta 10. Nice Work! Thanks for listening to your users! - May 8, 2003 by Cayce Collins

All in One - I like how this skin has everything wrapped into one. Nice. - May 6, 2003 by Planet Abyss

nice - nice! - April 20, 2003 by ramil ricamara

Better than MMD3 - This is (so far) the best skin I've ever had. Great work. I'd give it 6 stars if it let me - April 19, 2003 by Tanner Gregory

lovely !! - great skin!! >W - April 9, 2003 by So Polly

Woohooo!! - A new direction! Atlast! Its nice to see intiative shown, Not many skins offer something new, and this offers what i have been looking for... no loose playlists flying over my desktop.... one neat lil bundle (probably on usefull for users with dual monitors) Issues - as Micheal stated, the EQ isnt one of the most important features, and it would be excelent if the Video screen could be a Visualisation screen... Apart from that 5 stars! - April 8, 2003 by D p

simple and easy - I like the chrome-ish looks and the feeling that everything's just right there in front of you. No messed windows or anything makes it even better. - April 8, 2003 by C H

Dangerous Bug with this Skin! - With this skin, I was able to manipulate the main window so that only certain parts were showing, then close certain parts directly with the rightclick-windows menu. After that, I switched to another skin (Minima), and only the playlist was showing, but the main window was hidden. The skin is nice by itself, but has a nasty bug when skin-switching... Everything worked fine, so I thought I'd play with this 'playlist-only' mode, and tried it on a few skins. But then I quit Winamp3, and the next time I started it, every time I tried to do anything (even change skins), it crashes in nasty ways. So I can't get it to go back to Compact, so I can't reverse the problem... - April 6, 2003 by shifty utilator

Small, Compact, nice and very practice! - This is small, Compact, nice and very practice skin. Is perfect to put in a window corner and take it every time in action. - April 5, 2003 by Ignacio Poletti

it only lacks design and a compact mode - i wanted to design my own skin that would be an all in one feature but you juste made it!! it only lacks a compact mode and a bit of art ; ) very good job indeed - April 1, 2003 by xx xx

Awesome - This is probably the most uselful skin I've ever seen. Awesome. - April 1, 2003 by Reilley Adamson

So far.... - this is very nice, I still want to mess with it more :) seems fun - March 28, 2003 by Sully Sully

Wowowowow! - This skin is very very cool and useful!Not this many Windows but one for all!You should be kissed for this skin a thousand times! - March 27, 2003 by Jessica Schafer

wohoo - very good skin, but please mak some buttons to toggle the video and eq window or to toggle between components windows and let them show there where the video window is. ;) - March 26, 2003 by VooDoo`

Good ++ - VERY NICE compact skin. Only downfalls are the lack of color themes. You have some but all they do is just add red or whatever..they do not change the skin completely blue or on and so on...also. It would be a real nice feature if you added in "scale" and "Opacity". All in all your skin is really nice. One of the best compact skins I have seen. - March 23, 2003 by Damian M
