Spliting main window and playlist ?

EDIT 2: writing the topic again... :P

Hey guys.

The question was how i could sepperate the playlist with the main window, with the new skin (BENTO) and as JonnyMac wrote you can't without downloading this skin:

With the Bento skin? You can't. The Bento skin is a SUI (single user interface) or All in one skin. The panels can not be separated or moved.

If you want separate windows/panels, there is a Bento look-alike classic skin. However because it is a classic skin, it will not have some of the same features as the Bento Modern.
Bento Classified

If you like the SUI concept but want to separate the panels try the following skins…
Kameleon DUI skin
mMonkey DUI
However, when attached the positions are still "set in concrete" therefor can not be moved within.

[edit] Well, because I replied just about the same time you edited your thread I will keep this open and make a reference to this in the other one. [/edit]

While the main/player window is in focus (currently used), Ctrl+D to toggle double size.

For classic skins the main/player and Equalizer windows can only be normal or double sized. The playlist, ML and video windows can be expanded by clicking & dragging in the lower right corner.

For more info on changing Winamp's size…

It makes it totally useless for people who have 2 monitors hooked to there system. Who want to watch the video in screen while do something else in the other.

Winamp is whole doesn't like multi-head systems. Visualization takes over all monitors by change resolution on all monitors. MilkDrop 2.0 is getting better at handling 2 monitors.

I love the looks of the Bento skin but without the ability to detach the video, it is totally useless.

OK. Then....

Don't use any single UI skin (Bento included) and instead use another skin that has detachable/separate windows. There are thousands of skins to select from.

Problem solved.

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

I find myself in a similar position here, though to say it is "totally useless" would seem a bit juvenile, sorry.

I love both the appearance and the functionality of the Bento skin and if I had the choice I really would prefer to use it. It is excellent not useless.

However, I need the ability to detach the video screen for independent projection and without that function it looks like I am stuck with using the Modern skins. This allows me to continue, but its hardly a problem solved.

Unless anyone knows of a Modern skin which has a "Bento" panel to display the file info as it plays.

Here's one for the wishlist:

Can we take the Bento skins out of the main distribution, that way we don't get these stupid problems where people think Bento is the only skin available and it does not work for them. (If this idea of mine catches on, dump the modern skin from the client installer also. We do have the skin database where these skins could be DLd from).
