What about old winamp users who want skins but don't want to switch to winamp 2 or 3?



Essentially you at winamp, by taking off the old skins, are making people upgrade. Well I have already tried a newer version, and didn't find it to my liking at all. But now that I have went back to a lower version I can't download skins anymore, and I am stuck with the basic ugly default skin that is winamp. Don't get me wrong I love using winamp, it is the best mp3 player out there for the pc. But if I have to stick with this boring default skin then I just might have to use the mp3 player that was installed on my computer when I installed the OS. And seriously I am in now way looking forward to that. But really winamp isn't winamp unless you can change the skins.

Thanks for letting me vent.

If you find a WA2 skin that you like, but you're not able to download it from this site and use it, do this...

Right-click on the download link.
Choose "save as..." from the context menu.
Save the file as NameOfSkin.wsz into your Skins folder.
Open Winamp2 and switch to that skin.


By default, right now all the skins on the site save as NameOfSkin.wal instead of NameOfSkin.wsz... Winamp2 doesn't recognize the *.wal extension that WA3 uses. I'm sure the skins database is going to be fixed sometime.
