I am looking forward to a more final version of this one. I like the idea and might end up using it a lot when done.

Keep up the good work.

ahahaha... someone noticed!
I can honestly say that the two shirehorses albums are the worse pieces of music I have ever heard.

Total comic genius.

Also, feature request: I'd like to see AVS in the slot above the playlist.

Is there a way to port custom color themes from the modern skin to Single GUI without doing it manually? IE a file you can copy?

yeah...gammasets.xml..that should work. take it from the xml folder of the modern skin and put it into the xml folder of the single ui skins...then add
code:
<include file="xml/gammasets.xml" />

into the skin.xml where the rest of the file includes are unless its already there.

Or this way:

The custom themes are in either winamp\plugins\ColorThemes\winamp modern or winamp\plugins\freeform\wacs\ColorEditor\data.
In the first case copy all files from that directory to ..\Winamp_5_Single_UI, otherwise make a copy of winamp modern.xml called Winamp_5_Single_UI.xml.

It would also be helpful if the lenghts can be seen just below the the playlist ... as in other playlists. I mean, the total time and the time of the selected files!

I just wanted to say that this little project is freaking awesome. I had wondered why the ML didn't have play controls, I could almost have gotten rid of winamp's main menu then... This project represents what makes Winamp so great: the player is super-extensible via skins, plugins, etc. and if someone likes the interface a certain way, odds are someone has coded a way to make it work. The SingleUI skin is exactly what I happened to be looking for from winamp. I keep it running on my 2nd monitor in windowshade mode where it makes a perfect mini-player while an album is playing, then a double-click turns it into a full-screen media information center! Too rad.

If only I could code as well as I skin, I'd get motivated to make some contributions myself

So... Thanks. I really enjoy this here Single UI!

Bit of a problem here... I set the in-player video size to 1/2, then to 2x, but for some reason that stretched the skin horizontally and vertically. I got the horizontal stretch fixed no problem, but the vertical stretch is another matter. I cant move the window up far enough to get to the bottom! Do I have any options here, or is the skin screwed over?

[EDIT]
Nevermind, there was a little stretch on the right side next to the playlist that I was able to drag upwards. All fixed now You should probably get that bug looked at though

This is incredible!! I normally have my Winamp windows set up in a similar layout to resemble the layout of itunes and this makes it so much simpler with everything physically in one window. This should be distributed with Winamp as an alternative to the default skin.

That was kinda the intention... to distribute it as an alternative option with 5.04.
However and alas, time is running out... unless it's completed, like very very soon.

Me too don'tknow about itunes thou.
I mean some kind of a full screen winamp.
Now i use resurgence skin, it has all playback controls in pled, so only 2 windows open filling the screen (pled & ml)
But this skin has it all in one!

Only i miss the total playtime in playlist editor window,
and where is the equalizer, i don't see it even when chequed.
Could the weith of pled be adjustable like the left ml view?
Even more cool would be some kind of party mode to this skin

Well... its been a default for me since it was first brought on scene. Am just wondering why no updates have been out for sometime... Ofcourse I know of the lives that on'es got to get behind all this, but then think of our lives Don't we all live for this

Looking forward to:
1) Having the time/ length just below the playlist ... as in other playlists. I mean, the total time and the time of the selected files!

2) Having the option to see the viz in place of video when a video is not playing.

3) The Max/Min/Tray/Close buttons!
Max to Maximise (fit to full screen).
Min to Shade mode
Tray to Send to tray and...
Close to Close

4) Having an option where I could switch / define plugins choices. For eg. there are users who would rather have the Dynamic Library in place of the Media Library.

Certainly looks like 5.04 is on its way. Would rather have it by the end of the month as I go on vacation early next!

Cheers!

Question Media Library Share

Not sure if this dude is still working on this, it's been a while but I was wondering if he was going to include a panel for plugins like ml_www so you could access it without a separate browser. I currantly use the "Now Playing" section in the library but that reverts back to now playing every time a new track starts.



Whassup with the progress ion the skin?

Sweet skin! I wish I had this for the party I brought my song collection to last weekend, this is exactly what I needed (having the winamp controls in the media library, so I could have the ML take up the whole screen) exelent work!

This skin is as exciting as a new winamp version

Wow, this skin rocks. The clutter of multiple windows has always been the only thing that kind of bothers me about Winamp, and this takes care of that problem. I can't wait for the next version of this to be released--I'm already using it on all of my machines.

I'd like to report a bug that I haven't seen mentioned yet: I can't click and drag in the playlist to select multiple tracks.

Also, it is doing really wierd things when I play certain video files. I tried to play a Divx file (Star Wars - A New Hope), and Winamp suddenly grew to about 3 or 4 times my screen size. It took a minute of resizing and dragging until I got it back to the size it was supposed to be. Then I went to full screen, but when I tried to return to regular mode Winamp crashed. I'm not sure if this second occurance is related to this skin or not, but it's never happened to me before. Other video files, though (Along Came a Spider) worked perfectly fine.

I hope that these bugs can be squashed relatively easily, as I am looking forward to seeing this skin included with Winamp soon!

Ditto again. Also, in windowshade mode, the ML, EQ and PL buttons dont work. Also, the blue LCD area contained much more information in the Modern skin, such as vis, beat detection, kbps info, and all that Jazz. I miss it in this single GUI skin.

Can't wait to see the final of this skin! Come on spoons!

One thing that irks me about the modern skin, and it irks me even more on this huge all in one version is that eject/load button sitting all the way over the other side of the interface, kind of floating in space.

I kind of like my contols grouped together for ease of use.

If it was me, I'd try and pull that button back into the main group somehow, but that's just me.

iPlayTheSpoons Can we PLEASE have a Total Time below the Playlist too? Please... something I would really like.

Also... what would be the possibility of switching between ML and DL (Dynamic Library)? Maybe, if iPlayTheSpoons is too busy, just maybe, someone would be able to write a small set of instructions. I tried switching plugin names ... no luck ... Winamp seemed smarter than me

Cheers

I second that! specialy the first one, it's been asked for many times already, and shouldn't be so hard to do.
This feature is a must have!
For now i'll stick to resurgence skin, it has total playlist time displayed and opens winamp in not only one but 2 windows (ml& pled, controls can be shown in pled), but i prefer that over loosing total playlist time
I also can't wait to see the playlist resizable (long titles are not shown completely)

I like this skin a lot, suprised me that no one came up with a all in one window before, i've tried workstation, but it's nothing like this skin at all. Still there is some more work to do on it yet.

When the issues can be fixed, this would replace my default skin

I whipped up these real quick in photoshop, showing a couple ideas:

http://www.hotyams.com/images/full.gif

I've restored the modern skins LCD functionality, and added a collapse button to the ML, so you can collapse the ML away just like the PL. Also, where what in the modern skin is show/hide the video/vis drawer, you can show/hide the bulk of the Single GUI.

http://www.hotyams.com/images/fullnoml.gif
Here is the ML collapsed away.

http://www.hotyams.com/images/collapsed.jpg

Here is the bulk hidden. This would give the coolness of the modern skin and the single gui skin!

About the Idea of having a DL/ML switch implemented, it would be cool but a lot of work, and the DL author is considering a version of his plugin that is a ML plugin, so that would work just fine.

I also like how the Single UI skin's windowshade mode is exactly the same as moderns, except unfortunatly right now the ML/PL buttons are broken.

He badrad, i like your ideas.

I made one myself, i like controls on top, and control buttons grouped together instead spread. (i've read this higher in this post already)
I also added the total playtime of playlist.

Your hide/collaps drawers would be cool,
The ML/DL toggle has to be done in the DL plugin i think.

Now lets hope thespoons can spare enough time to work on this skin. If users will keep comming with usefull ideas, it won't be finished soon But it wouldmake the skin the absolute top favourite.

another progress shot, more lcd info, toggle button for vis/video (still trying to find a good mix of auto and manual show/hide), pl time (ugly still)

i dont know i could really integrate the dynamic library...if it were made into a ml_plug that simply took over the ml, it would just do itself, but as it stands now, its a weak maybe.

and as for all these layout change suggestions...no. im bascially going from the original drawing by steve...so ya.
