Looking for a modern, no-BS skin with album art

Recommendations welcome. I don't need visualizations, libraries, or browsers.

The modern skin is too big for my taste, so I wanted to know what else is out there. Your first picture is pretty close to my ideal layout, but I don't want album art to add yet another vertical tier. I would like album art to be integrated into the player itself (like in Bento) or into the playlist, but without taking up as much space as it does in the current cPro.

OK, I installed Album Art +. But I still can't get the layout I want. Do you mind walking me through it? Here's where I'm at so far.

Both of those layouts waste a lot of space. I don't want the cover art to take so much horizontal space (example 1) or a whole separate vertical tier (example 2).

there is a classic coverview plugin (by will fisher) http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....hreadid=287638

this one enables you to show the classic albumart with classic and modern skins - now download your fav classic skin (maybe bento classic) and open the albumart window

Bento already has pretty much perfect album art display without any extra plugins, but it's not great for people who don't use visualizations, because a large amount of space underneath the main window ends up being wasted. See my original screenshot, that's the layout I'm looking for.

I believe I had requested a bento looking skin with the playlist just like that but no album art. I'll do some digging.

EDIT/ http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....=&pagenumber=1 here you go.

That's actually pretty darn close to what I was looking for! Going to try to make it work with small Bento. Thanks!

Hi
Have a look on NEO and NEO CLASSIC.
I designed these skins to spare space and show albumart without bells and whistles.
Hope it makes your day.

What do you think about this skin? It's an update to my Orion skin that I haven't made public (until now)...

aaronspuler, looks very nice. Is it possible to have bitrate and time elapsed shown? It can be optional.

Nope, the version of Orion that I have doesn't have bitrate and time elapsed available as options. I rip all my mp3's at the same bitrate, so that info is useless to me. And you can hit the playlist button (the star) to see how long the total song is and then make a guess based on the progress line under the album art.

I know, probably not the answer you were looking for....

Knocks what if the album art could be displayed in the place where the animated beatvis is in ClassicPro? Would that work for you?

I can include this in ClassicPro for all skins:


Or I can write a widget just for the Cpro - Bento skin then it will look like this:

ClassicPro© v2.01 : This plugin allows you to use cPro skins in Winamp. ClassicPro skins are all SUI skins and loads very quickly. ClassicPro skins is even easier to skin than Winamp Classic skins. A new layout have been added since version 2.
Download ClassicPro© ==== cPro Skins ==== ClassicPro© Homepage ==== SC Forums

I do believe the space currently occupied by the words "skin consortium" (I don't use the Beat Vis) would be well fit for album art.

What really confuses me about Classic Pro is the location of the play control buttons. Because people often resize their playlist window (depending on how many songs there are in an album, for example), it feels unnatural to see the buttons move up or down relative to the main window.

P.S. Here's a new upload of my previous pic (the old URL expired)
