I came back to this thread after a LONG hiatus, and what do I find, but the project has been abandoned by its creator. I'm an iTunes convert, but my new MP3 player didn't play well with iTunes, so I switched to Winamp, and not being able to quickly resize all windows at once has bugged me ever since the switch. I was reading through the posts and when I saw that iPlayTheSpoons had converted to WMP, I nearly cried. After the man put two years of his time and effort into this skin (and I've looked at the code, I don't know Maki but the stuff looks DAMN intimidating, and well written) only to abandon it for something that, while a huge improvement over the previous versions, is still nowhere near as efficient or as customizable as Winamp, or even (in my opinion) the BETA of his own skin. Sorry for the run-on sentence. But there is hope! I was pleased to discover that a few posts (and about 5 months) later, Kebabrov took the initiative and put out his own improved version of the skin, and managed to fix the window-resize-on-video-open bug, which is what kept me from using the skin in the first place. I downloaded it and am messing with it as we speak. From what I can tell, I think I've finally found my solution to the iTunes/Winamp problem!
However, there are still a few bugs that need working out:
able to break the skin (playlist covered minimize/max/close buttons) but only after extensive
experimentation and judicious resizing in ways that probably weren't designed to happen. This is not a major issue to me, because I was able to completely undo what I did without deleting studio.xnf, and I have yet to duplicate the problem.
The overall look and feel of the whole skin is that of a beta, just a general polishing up of the graphics, repositioning some of the buttons, less flicker, stuff like that, although none of that really matters to me (function over form is my preference). The main issue here is that the buttons that Kebabrov added have very different edges than the ones that iPlayTheSpoons made, so it looks like a bit of a mash (no offense intended Kebabrov, it's still great work).
My question: Would it be possible for Kebabrov to get together with krckoorascic (who helped iPlayTheSpoons with the original skin) and tighten things up a bit. All that would be necessary is a few graphical corrections for alternate color themes and a look into the resizing script for the ML/PL border (it does some weird stuff sometimes, possibly because it behaves kinda like it's based off the absolute position of the bar on-screen, rather than on a location relative to the window.)
P.S. MAJOR kudos to Kebabrov for the ML/VIS/VID 2 button combo, the way that works is absolutely genius, all the functionality of 3 buttons, in 2, with no possibility of erroring out the skin by closing all 3. Also, the ability to switch the position of the vid/vis window is amazing. I do believe it is safe to say: http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~wdhf2/u/SuckMyBallsITunes.gif
