Copyright/Acknowledgement Issues

Hey all.

Is it ok if we distribute a skin we make to include the default winamp playlist window etc etc?. This means including the xml and maki files found in the winamp modern skin folders and acknowledging them in the readme file.

I only wanted to skin the main window.

Yeah, but it makes you a lazy SOB and people prefer their components skinned to match the rest of the player otherwise it just looks fugly

Yeah, you can distribute it, but not on winamp.com.
It would be rejected by the reviewers as incomplete.

OK yeh I'm a lazy slob but thats just because I cant seem to work out how to skin windows other than the main one.

All my attempts have resulted in zilch for windows other than the main window.

So if you can suggest somewhere with a good tutorial on the area, post it up.

Or what would be even BETTER, post up a generic template for skinning windows other than the main one that I can modify with my own elements, layout, etc etc.

The one included with the base skin is about as generic as you are going to get.

As for tutorials and so on, there are hundreds of threads on these forums, just search for standardframe, here are a few examples.
