leech winampskins from winamp homepage!?

Hi there !
does someone know how to get all skins, hostet on then ftp.winamp.com ?
its really a lot of work to click all "download-links" on the webpage.
isnt there a faster way, like connecting to ftp.winamp.com and get all skins hosted there ???
I have no port or login for the ftp there.
I tried wget and http-weazel. but nothing really seems to work.
anyone got an idea, or can suggest me something ?

Greetinx,

You must have one hell of a connection... 4200 skins of 200kB would mean at least 820.31 MB of skins.

SURE !

I have DSL FLAT and ? I have enough time and enough place

no prob ...

if the winamp-server is quick, i can leech that within some hours.
my download maximum is at
50-60 KBps...
I can download 2GB within 2 days so what's with that 800 MB ?
LOL

so again:
is there a posibility ? or not(?)
I wrote to the winamp support, but nobody responded until now...
;(

better ?
WAS that to the topic I just started talkin in this thread ???

Dunno...

Then if this is your opinion, that this is NOT the right section... WHY THE HELL did ya read it ? why did ya wrote to it ?
why cant you just IGNORE it ?
NAH !

- "...wrong section!..."
- "... why that ?..."

OK,

You're rude, you're a leech, and you can't use english very well, which would be totally excusable if the first two weren't true.

If you want a big skin collection, why don't you try making friends with a Winamp Major Dude and asking them to send you their collection. Then you'd get all the good skins without having to wade through the hundreds or thousands of lousy ones.

I don't care if you're a newbie or a mod. If you are causing forum troubles you are going to get flamed. The responses you got were mild compared to the flames some people draw.

-=Gonzotek=-

If you like leeching so much, go get a copy of Edonkey2000 and download some movies. That should keep you busy for awhile.

I was away for a while.
But I'm feeling much better now.

to start with this is the winamp 3 section, ur talking about winamp 2

plus a lot of the skins on winamp.com are skinner.exe crappy skins you'd be much better off going to a site such as customize.org or deviantart.com these sites only tend to have good winamp skins not skinner.exe ones, as far as i know there isnt a way to leech all of the skins from winamp.com,

SORRY.

also you appear to have a few posts so im assuming you dont know how these forums work, u post a question in the wrong section if people tell u its in the wrong section u dont go and bitch at them they're only trying to help, u just wanna hope that some of the members of these forums dont see this thread you'll need an extra special flamesuit

(i dont personally like the way newbies like yourself are treated by some of the members but thats just the way it is)

i say tho, dont bitch at my fellow members for giving u advice on how the forums work they've been here longer than u and know more about the forums.

Edonkey2000 is a filesharing program, like Napster, Audiogalaxy, Audiognome, Gnutella, Morpheus, etc. you can get it at www.Edonkey2000.com. I like it for movies, for mp3s and software, you should try morpheus from www.musiccity.com

You will find you get better answers with less effort if you take the time to form better questions, are more polite, and post the questions on the appropriate message board. You also didn't seem to take notice that I gave you a good suggestion as to how you can get a nice collection of skins quickly, but hey, whatever.

Also winamp2 may have a maximum number of skins so if you had 4200 or whatever winamp might have a fit and crash or something.

Why Llamas? Why not Aardvarks??
