Removing the visualization

I'm rather new to skinning and was wondering, is it possible to remove the visualization in the default skin?

In both the classic and modern winamp skins you can turn the vis off by left clicking on it, that cycles through the available vis modes.
Bars > Osc > Off.

If you want to remove it totaly from the modern skin, then you'll have to start hacking around in the xml files that make up the skin itself, in the classic skin that's not possible, only the options to turn it off will work.

Be aware if you remove the entry for the vis in the xml the modern skin may fail to work correctly as there may be other scripts running in the skin that rely on the vis being present in the xml.

Plus each time you upgrade your winamp client the default modern base skin will be written again so any changes you make will be overwritten.

hmm, so it's best not to remove the visualization. How about just preventing it from showing up (that is, taking up space)? Any ideas on that?

Oh you can remove the vis from the modern skin, it will still work.
This is what you have to do:
Look in the xml folder inside the Winamp Modern skin folder for the file "playlist-normal-group.xml".
Open it and search for this part (it's in line 364): "<vis ... colorosc5="255,255,255"/>".
Surround it by <!-- and -->. Example: <!-- <vis ... colorosc5="255,255,255"/> -->

This way, Winamp will ignore it, but if you want it back, simply delete the <!-- and -->.
You can do that too with <layer id="visualization.background" etc. />. That will hide the background of the analyzer too. It's above <vis.../>.

The layer under <vis.../> (<layer id="visualization.overlay" etc./>) must be left in place in order to keep the skin working correctly.

I hope I am clear.



@ nspmangalore: you can use the pre-made customvis script for that, by frisbeemonkey. You can get it from his tutorial site: http://www.frisbeemonkey.com/winamp3...ences/maki.php
