The only problem is I have very limited skills in skin creation and Photoshop. I hope someone who does could take this and do it right...

Nice! I like it and not just because you did a screenshot with the same song . I couldn't quite figure out the "frames" and "stretching" in the theme editor to rearrange the volume and progress backgrounds correctly - you did exactly what I wanted to do. Thanks for tackling this. Are you willing to share?
The only other things I would want is multi-line text for the track details (I suspect this might not be possible) and the remaining/total track time text somewhere as in the "Glided" MiniPlayer.

Multi-line text: If you resize the text area will it actually wrap? If so, maybe the player could be changed to allow resizing vertically to allow the text area to resize and be multi-line if the user has room for it? Most of the MiniPlayer skins seem to allow horizontal resizing so it seems like this might be possible.
Track Time: This seems to work for the Glided skin. Are they doing something special? I think the time text might look good placed inside the time progress bar?
cncb wrote:There seems to be a bug in MediaMonkey where it always lines up the bottom left of the Now Playing list opened by the MiniPlayer with the top left of the MiniPlayer. This causes most of the Now Playing list window to be displayed off-screen when you have the MiniPlayer positioned at the far right of the screen (where I have all my gadgets). Even if I drag the Now Playing list window to a different location it keeps re-opening to this undesirable location. Is there any way to avoid this?
I was also wondering if there is any way to display the current Now Playing position and count as text within the MiniPlayer (e.g. '3 of 35'). If so, maybe the MiniPlayer height could be increased slightly and this text could be squeezed in above or below the player controls? Thanks.
