Customize Tabs in Bento Skin

My suggestion is simple:

- An option to put the Playlist as a tab alongside Media Library, Video, Visualization and Browser tabs

i think it's a great skin, but i don't use it because i can't display the lyrics when i do. i use the leo's lyrics plugin, but it disappears whenever i click on the main winamp window. kind of annoying.

integrating the leo's lyrics plugin into the bento skin would be ideal in my opinion
Why not make Custom tab(s) in Bento skin. Now winamp finaly after many years and many poor attempts has a decent single gui skin, we (winamp lovers) still have to deal with multiple windows for our favourite plugins

A good idea, but probably hard to implement...

Why would that be so hard to do?

because a lot of the requests come against integrating (old) 3rd party plugins on the main part which won't work as well with the integration, etc from my understanding. and considering how a lot of the popular ones aren't updated anymore, you'd potentially have to go down the hackish type root which isn't ideal for anyone to do. would be nice but i think there's far more important things to be worked on

but creating some kind of api for future implementation would maby be possible? (basically leaving it up to the plugin devs)

I still want the "playlist in tab option" even if other implementations won't be done.

Yep. We know about the feature request and hope to implement it eventually. No guarantees on a timeline, but we're already working with Jonas to get a tab in for Dynamic Library, if it's present.

When i talked about 'our favourite plugins' in my first post here, that's exactly the one i had in mind . As for other plugins, I don't know about all the tech stuff, but if DrO confirms it's not that easy i have no reason to doubd the opinion of an expert. Still someone might come along to give it a try maybe.
For me personaly just a DL tab would do. It's a more than worthy alternative to ML, could even be bundled/integrated in winamp imho.

Yes, this is a great idea
Possibility to remove "Video, browser, and vis" and adding... explorer.exe browser, ml_tree ml_tree and other goodies

Tab Suggestions

Another useful tab would be a file explorer, or an empty tab that you can add anything into, upon dragging in it (eg a plugin). Also a big problem is of album art,so you can really just display it in the main window(?), saves space.
has anyone used amarok?

Also have the gods thought about winamp+firefox integration?
the IE+winamp toolbar was a very good effort, but (i guess) not many use IE. (just a thought.. i am happy with foxyTunes)

Thanks!

Anything new on this part here? I'm waiting for a PlayList Tab. I'm using the Skin from http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....postid=2427332 for now, but it's a little buggy. So a native possibility would be great!
