I don't think you can post an AVI on Winamp.
Yopu can snag a screenshot by hitting alt-printscreen when the AVS window is active. Where on winamp are you trying to post this pic?

that or go to the thread right below this one that you started, trust me, i started that post, and i asked almost every question possible, and you will definately find where to find a program to make an exe file for your avs's and if that isnt what you want, and you just want to submit one, then zip it up and try it then ;]~
if that aint right... damn.. im a dumbass... and sorry if i confuzed you at all ;]~
:rolleyes: :weird: :igor:

All you do is, when you get to the submit screen, click the browse button beside the image text box. Then you find your image. That's all I know, and it worked for me.

They stupid site doesn't accept my jpeg images could it be an xp thing or am i doing something wrong....
if worse comes to worse ill start my own submit file from one of these post that im sure will work, but it may bring in virus creators :(
if someone has done it and manage to submit one please tell me step by step on how you did it i know im askling a lot but i just am getting so addicted to trying to submit my viz.

here is what it gave me...
ERROR You have not specified a component file.
ERROR The small image file you have uploaded is not a gif or jpeg image file.
but they are they all are i even let it be discolored in gif and it still would work i have just about had it maby this is a sign i dont belong doing this. I'm no prgrammer anyway just a 16 year old kid with extra time on his hands.
Here is the screen shot one of my viz " Ill send each on in a seprate post becouse it wont let me send more than one at once" tell me if its worth it any more.... be honest
This one is called calasping star

Usually people submit the actual presets instead of a screenshot or screenmovie.
Oh by the way, capturing them as pixel-doubled only makes the image larger, but adds no detail.

here is all my viz. u just hafta go threw a few irrelevent folders and they'll be there, this is the real files not screenshots. :)

note youll have to put them in the correct folder hear is the place

Usually presets are posted in the preset forum, not the tech support one. :)
28th May 2002, 01:19
I'm sorry but i dont know how to preset them..
I just found the folder copyed them to my desktop siped them up and posted them.
How do i make them presets this may sovle one of my three problems publishing them:)
Can you tell me.

Each one of these things, these visualizations you make in AVS, are called presets. Just another name for the same thing. Sorry to get your hopes up.
Do you have a pack ready to publish?
28th May 2002, 18:20
Yes I currently have 6 avs to publish, I just found out yesterday to switch them to .exe but now i have trouble with making a thumnail.
I still havn't had anyone look at mine am i doing something wrong or do they just look boring?
What you have to do is copy and past them into the avi folder of your winamp program on your hard drive its a pain but i dont know of a better idea. Im no programer and don't have certain programs. Just netzip and an absesion with getting these look at by another person.

I assume you used PiMP to make them into a zip file. If you check out the developers section of the Winamp website, you can find some documentation on how to set the output directories.
But when you post stuff in the forums, it isn't required to PiMP your presets-(but it's normal to PiMP them whenever you publish them on the main Winamp website). I've gotten a little rusty on my PiMPing skills, but I could probably do it if I took a look at what you're trying to do. You can do all sorts of advanced stuff with PiMPing.
Even though I may not be able to answer all of your questions, if you ask a specific question, I'm sure the rest of the forum will help out if you ask them a specific question about PiMPing. :)
:) Just a friendly message from C. Mountford :)
--Edit--: You probably the reply I made in the AVS Presets sub-forum :)

I have mad pimping skilz :cool:
Well, not really. I just want to say I've got mad pimping skilz. :)
As to the jpeg thing the started this whole thing, still no idea.
You'd probably get better results with posting your presets in the preset subforum. If these are your first presets, I'd advise against publishing them on winamp, just because they won't accurately reflect what you can do, and may discourage you when the untamed masses (people who can't or won't write a decent critique) rip in.
Just took a look at you presets. Some of them are fairly nice, some I didn't like. One thing you have to remeber is any prestes you actually publish with be compaed the Unconed's, El-Vis', Duo's, and heck, even mine if anyone even bothers to look at it with a rating of 3 and 1/2 stars. (I thought it was pretty darn good too (The first person to review it obviously didn't think so):( )
Check it out.
