Transparent Skins?

Hi,

I have a couple of questions:

1. Is there a modern Winamp skin/Bento theme that is fully transparent?

2. Failing the above, is there any way to get Winamp to use the native Windows theme instead of a Winamp skin?

I'm looking for an effect similar to this Opera skin: http://my.opera.com/community/custom.../info/?id=9281

Thanks in advance!

Question 1
The preview/screenshot of the Opera skin was too small to make a good view of the skin. However, check out MusicShow, GlassAmp and/or WinVista.

Also, don't forget that you can change the opacity/transparency of Winamp's modern skins. By Ctrl+'right click' on a negative/"empty" space on Winamp ans selecting Opacity or in the Alpha Bleding tab in Winamp Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins


Question 2

Sorry the answer is no. However there are some skins made too look like the various Windows UI/themes. So, you might want to try searching for skins at Winamp.com/skins using various key words like Windows, Xp, Vista, etc..

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

Okay, I think I'll stick with Elemental for now then; it's nice and simple and classic skins seem to be better at handling large music collections.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Do you think you could create some skins that represent certain styles of music - blues, hard rock, classical etc?

I'm actually eagerly awaiting a Windows 7 savvy Bento skin, but at the moment, it seems as though WinAmp development has ground to a halt.

development never ceases
right now they are getting kinks out of the program that have been reported since the last released version (some that have dumbfounded them for the longest)
