info in the now playing window is controld by the user of the skins. or of mediamonkey. right click the header of the column and then you get a list of columns to add to the list view area of the now playing window. :)

I guess I wasn't specific enough. I'm not talking about the now playing window, but the area at the bottom of the screen that displays info about the currently playing track (not sure what to call that).

I don't know what it's called. On the bottom of my screen is an area that shows info about the song currently playing: artist, track title, progress bar, volume controls, start/stop/FF/RW, album cover, file format, bit rate, star rating. It has everything I want, except the Album name.

It's called the player (see: View -> Player in menu).

I'm not sure that there's room for the album name, however. Some people really like the large font in the player; also its really set up to show just title and artist (with the two different colors available).

In any case, I'm working on Vitreous v2.0 and I don't think there will be any more updates to this skin until that is released.

I am really looking forward to see what you come up with.

Would you consider incorporating the Vista\Win7 type graphic in the top border as per DreadM's recent addition to his 7on skin? I didn't realise I missed this until it was there :-)

I'll have to see exactly how he implements it, I did want to include that originally but I was worried about the way it would look when resized. It might be a while before I release this skin, since I'm currently working on my last.fm skin and another yet-to-be named one which I started quite awhile ago.

In any case, it would really be nice if MM gave us the option to use the real aero borders...

I love this skin!!!
The player is the best: album art, big buttons :o , thick seek bar :lol:, rating, etc.

I just don't like the title bar (vista style), would it be possible to get the original one (windows default, or themed)?

Another question, I don't know whether is possible to refresh the kbps when playing VBR files?

Thanks, and congrats!!! :D :D :D

There's a ton of space on my player. I'm thinking maybe just do an Artist - Album kind of thing on one line. When I'm playing several albums by one artist, it's nice to see which album they're from. Just something to think about for V.2.

Dear Guest,

I think I know what you want, you want the Album showing along with the Title and Artist. I wanted that too, as this is a wonderful skin, and changed it in the player ini file. There is a process for this and if you don't know how to do it, let me know, I'll write up the instructions.

Wow, I finally get to help someone!

Thanks for pointing me to the player.ini file. Along with the helpful documentation on skins, it was really easy just to add the - %L and now the skin is just how I wanted it.

I have v1.1.5.1 installed and I'm wondering where I can download v1.1.5.2?
I'm running MM 3.2, so I thought it would automatically be included, but it isn't.
Thanks.
