Do I need modern skin support?

Hi, I'm just wondering what the modern skin support does. I just want to use the media library (haven't tried it yet) and expand my old classic skin so the library window looks like the rest of winamp (if that's possible). So my question is, do I need modern skin support to display the media library?

Another thing that just came to my mind:
Is there a description of all the installation options, like what's the winamp agent for or what does 'Extended Jump To File Support' mean?

cheers, gringle

Modern Skin support allows you to...
  1. Use Modern skins and not be limited to just Classic skins (many Modern skins also contain extra features that Classic skins don't/can't have)
  2. Modern skins will also skin the Media Library which not ALL Classic skins will do (especially older ones)
So, with many Classic skins the Media Library will not be skinned, as it would using Modern skins. You do not "need" Modern skin support to display the media library. As long as you've installed Media Library support, the Media Library will be displayed (but perhaps not skinned) and you'll be able to use it. If using a Classic skin other than the default Classic skin, and if that skin has not been updated by the author to also skin the Media Library, then the Media Library will instead "fall back" to being displayed using the default Classic skin (bundled in Winamp distribution).

*Note: You will find that the majority of the thousands of Classic skins available for download at winamp.com are in fact older skins and have not been updated by the authors to skin the Media Library.
__________________________________

The Winamp Agent is used (enabled) to protect file associations and to prevent other applications from stealing or hijacking file associations from Winamp. Windows Media Player is notorious for doing this, especially when you open media files from Windows Explorer, and then suddenly you find that your media is playing with WMP and not with Winamp any longer. The Winamp Agent also places an icon in the systray for right-click menu options to open Winamp and access/open Winamp via Bookmarks, when Winamp is closed. When Winamp is open, the Winamp Agent icon right-click menu contains practically all options/ features available in Winamp.
__________________________________

"Extended Jump To File Support" refers to DrO's Jump To File Extra (JTFE) plugin, which is included in the Winamp distribution and is checkmarked by default in the Winamp installer. It's an invaluable feature and I suggest that you do not UNcheck it in the installation process.

Another plugin created by DrO, Skinned Preferences, will allow skinning of all Preferences windows and other related dialog windows as well. Another very good plugin developed by DrO.

Another plugin developed by DrO that is invaluable if you have downloaded many Classic and Modern skins, but have too many to easily distinguish which is which, is DrO's Skins In Submenu plugin. The plugin splits the Modern and Classic skins into their own submenus.

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

Thanks for your detailed answer and the explanations. However, the things I mentioned, the Winamp Agent and the "Extended Jump To File Support" were just examples. I was looking for a complete list of explanations of all the features you can choose (not) to install with Winamp. I mean, when you don't know what for instance the Jump-To-File thing does, how are you supposed to know if you want/need it? I just thought I wouldn't be the only one who would find such a list useful. So, it's a suggestion. And thanks to you, I'm half way there

Well I thought that you wanted to know what they were for, based on your question. If I had thought otherwise I would not have wasted any of my time explaining what they are for. You asked about them specifically, and I answered.

You will not find such a list. None exist. You can suggest this in the Wishlist forum but I doubt if anybody at AOL/Nullsoft will bother to compile such a thing. And since the Moderators here are not paid in any way, I doubt if any of us would tackle it either. I certainly won't. But what I will do is try my best to answer questions (such as yours) in these forums if possible.

How are you supposed to know if something is wanted/needed? Do what I and just about everyone else does... install the Full package with all features checked. Then as you try each feature, you can decide if you don't want it or not. In most cases, such as with JTFE or any other plugin, if you don't like it, the plugin(s) can be easily uninstalled via Preferences > Plug-in > Plug-in category/type > highlight/select the plug-in > click "Uninstall plug-in" button

An alternative method would be to first close Winamp, then browse to the Winamp\Plugins folder on your hard drive, and physically remove the DLL file for the plug-in.

In the rare case that a feature/component cannot be removed in the above manner then just uninstall/reinstall Winamp 5 Full but at that point you can UNcheck the feature that you have already "test-driven" and do not want.

Note: You can still use the CD Ripper if you uncheck this feature and ASPI is installed (Win9x-only, pre 5.5 only) | Info | ASPI is not required under Win2k/XP, and if Sonic is not installed, Winamp will attempt to use the native SPTI engine instead (though if ASPI is erroneously present, eg. if it's been installed by some other app such as Nero or Adaptec, then ASPI will take precedence over SPTI).

You did not waste your time, I wanted to know what they are for and I appreciate that you explained them to me. I tried to say that I wanted to know about them AND the other stuff that is optional which, thanks to DJ Egg, I do now.

Winamp Library
Filename: gen_ml.dll (387kb)
If you don't know what this is then you shouldn't be here.
Too bad, as this information is the main reason I searched this thread. Ah well, will have to continue searching for a more detailed/comprehensive explanation of the winamp components.

This is one excellent guide, you should really make it a sticky. Exactly all the info I needed! Thanks, DJ Egg!!

On a side note, no, ML isn't all WA is about I'm using the Dynamic Library plugin, and am a very happy user; it's very sad that it isn't developed any further.

Hi DJ Egg,

Hi DJ Egg,

Thank you for attending to this so quickly.

The original and the current post appear to be the same. There are still references to things no longer available (e.g. the Winamp Essentials Pack, some online media, etc.). You would know better than me exactly what all of these things are since I don't use the complete suite of Winamp features. I assumed a comprehensive update would not be a quick or easy job.

However, I was thinking that this info would help new users and may help those still using older versions to see how to upgrade and mostly keep the 'look and feel' of the versions they are using.

I removed a heap of stuff from the original... 3rd-party Bundles, OpenCandy, Browser plugins, AOL Search, Gracenote features, and more.

Yup, I missed some stuff in the decoders & ML sections, which I've now also fixed.

How's it looking now?

I'm sure you updated or removed a lot of stuff, after-all it's been over 10 years since the previous update. I was thrown off by the following link at the end of the post that just pulls up the current post instead of the original one.

"Original doc: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?threadid=199851"

Another missed edit at the beginning of post, that may confuse people. 12 screens are mentioned instead of the current 9, that are described.

"Note, the following section is akin to Screen 4 ("Choose Components" page) of the installer.
Full details of Screens 1 to 12 can be found below."


Thanx again for responding to my request so quickly.

These two sites offer thousands of high quality Winamp skins:DeviantArt has even more skins but of mixed quality.

Customize.org has the best browsing options but, unfortunately, downloads are blocked by Google Safe Browsing and Microsoft's SmartScreen Filter:

Or if you are on Facebook, you might want to check out the Winamp Enthusiasts Group's Winamp Skins collection.
