If Winamp was still popular, this would dethrone MMD3.

Less is More, Victor - an old principle which you can easily apply creating a Winamp skin.

Hi PeterK.

This is a great update. I'm a fan of the notification pop-up feature. Could you expose the options that let a user select how it is displayed, where it is displayed, and how long the pop-up is displayed?

Thank you for the info. I don't have the skills (other than that needed for simple xml file edits) to modify skins myself. I tried editing the relevant values in the studio.xnf file but that didn't work. The notifier pop-ups based on the script in the Winamp Modern skin do not expose the options in the UI that I would most like to use (location and duration). Those based on the script in Big Bento do.

For a long time after the notifier pop-up was introduced it did not work correctly. In addition, many people consider this momentary pop-up a distraction so they simply disable it. I mainly look at the pop-ups from time to time to let me know when my active playlist is about to run out (when the playlist itself is not visible), so I will learn to live with what Quinto Black CT provides. It is a great deal more usable than the original Quinto skin.

I must confess that I am little bit confused right now since you mentioned NOTIFICATIONS in your previous post and NOTIFIER in the last one.

I thought you were interested in learning how to enable NOTIFICATIONS ON THE DISPLAY. But this is not the case here at all. You were talking about the NOTIFIER and the option of placing it on the desktop. Correct?

No, there is no such option which would allow user to choose where to put the NOTIFIER on their desktop. I am sorry. And the reason for the lack of such option is the fact, that Quinto's NOTIFIER does not truncate too long song infos. If the song's name contains 200 characters you will see all of them. Placing the NOTIFIER in the right corner and showing just 10 of those characters would make no sense here. IMO.

Sorry about the confusion. Proper terminology can be a bit tricky at times. I am indeed talking about the notifier pop-up. The related options in the UI are listed in the main context menu under the Options - Notifications commands.

I know it would not be simple to replace a Winamp Modern based notifier with a Big Bento based one. Ignore my request.

The notifier in Winamp Modern does show in the lower right corner, but the one in your skin shows centered at the bottom of the screen on my computer. I have it centered at the top of my screen for the other modern skins in my collection that let me control the location. The notifiers based on the Big Bento scheme grow or shrink to accommodate their contents. They can also include a scaled down version of any related album art available.
