Large-Font Song Title Banner

I have seen the question asked in these forums, but I have not found the answer:

Is there a way to display a much-larger-font Title + Artist banner for the currently playing song? Can the size of the banner be increased within a given skin? Or has someone created a skin that has an unusually large banner? I would like to be able to spot the "Currently Playing" info at a glance, rather than having to walk up close to my tiny monitor. As you can probably tell, I know nothing about writing skins - - so I need to ask this question.

Thanks!

No (well sort of), no (again sort of) and yes. See Nullsoft Media Player 10, 1010 Fullscreen, KameleonDUI for some large songticker skins.

As for the first two, on Modern Skins you can manually change the font for the songticker by using the font mapper in Prefs -> Skins -> Modern Skins -> Font Rendering tab. But if you make the font too large it will start clipping on the edge of the songticker area so this is of limited help. A bold font might be easier to read.

Or, try a title display screen-saver.

Also, click here for the skins that J_Darnley mentioned. Anunaki110 and Alpha Media Player may be worth a try as well.

Many thanks to J_Darnley and JonnyMac for the suggestions. I was spending a lot of time trying dozens and dozens of skins. You have provided some great shortcuts for me. Can't wait to get home and try them out tonight.
