Winamp Enthusiasts Group HiFi Rack



A few out there may be interested in this software to play Winamp.
I just made my first widget.
:-)

Animated turntable platter with click to scratch sound effect
Animated VU Meters
Animated Dancers
Animated Mirrorball
All animations stop when music is paused or stopped
Dancers and mirrorball can be turned on or off
Random, repeat, Play/pause and Stop buttons
Best used with Winamp!
Enjoy!
Please give credit if modifying this widget.
Xwidget required to run this widget.

I would put the dancers on the sides of the rack and pay attention to the other suggestions from Jimking. Don't be despotic if other people want to use other players!! hahaha

PS: "The scratch me baaaaaby" is hilarious!!

...Nice rack.
The widget looks good too

II can't find a download option. Do I have to sign into Deviant Art ?

I think I had an account many years ago, but don't use it enough to warrant getting another.

This is good fun while I have people round and I'm just chatting.
I keep trying to interact with it more !
It feels like it should do more real stuff (eg. I keep trying to pull out a record sleeve to look at what is playing )

Since Afterdark (showing my age) I don't tend to use screensavers much, and Electric Sheep makes me waste GBs of space.

After wading through the XWidgets catalogue I can see this is a rare widget.
Most of them are just clocks, volume gadgets and weather widgets.
There are a few nice PC info widgets so I grabbed a few cyber-punk desktop toys.


If you do any updates, here is my opinion and I'll only suggest things that would be "natural".
I'm wondering if there is a way to show the album art as a record sleeve ?
Click on the records and it sits either in the current empty space, or centre-front on the floor.

Perhaps using AjaxAMP would allow you to see the folders and just show the local pics ?

If you can use it to control Winamp then maybe clicking on the records could show 3 album pictures ?
Previous, Now and Next.

Finishing touch. How about the arm uses a 5 or 6 frame anim (This is probably the average LP track per side count).
If you can call a specific frame on-demand then you could have it hop inwards on every track, then return to the outside.
*I have no idea how much is possible, but I'll keep rolling
If you can change the FPS of an anim on-demand, then a higher frame anim could be used to track the length of the song across the deck (assuming the widget can know the track time).
Perhaps both are possible and could be optional.

I feel I must end this on a sour note....Sorry.
Upon first using it I was rather confused to get an impromptu mashup between Winamp (currently running) and a mystery new task
Looking in Process Explorer I could see WMP had launched as a minimised task.

Could you perhaps change it so Winamp is the default ?
There, not so sour, just messing
