that being said, I've install foobar2000 and found it has really good UI customization.. but I cannot work out how to install a theme like that.
...to the point where I think something's getting confused and it's not possible.
so you think I'm crazy well test the skin out with foobar,
test out foobar, and if you like that then get out of media monkey and go use that. stop trying to make media monkey look like some other cheap a... media program that does not do anything but ramp up the cpu cycles with fancy unneeded code to make a mirror effect. there are already mirror effect codes for html that can be used on your art work if you so wish to view it in a mirror effect. just view it in the ie and leave the effect out of monkey.
its useless and provides no usefulness in monkey at all. i don't know of any other media player program that would even consider making their program look act and feel like any other one. what makes you think media monkey should be a copy of boo bar or any other media player.
when you change the media player you use to media monkey toss out all the stuff you did with that other program and use media monkey find areas that need fixed in media monkey and get them fixed then if there is something that will benefit media monkey suggest it but don't suggest media monkey look like another program that is just wanting your old program to be like media monkey, so go back to it and try to get them to make theirs like media monkey. you more then likely will be told to come to media monkey if you like it.
trying to make mediamonkey work act feel and smell like any other media player program is just trying to make mediamonkey loose its identity.
if you want to do that then get someone to make a script for mediamonkey you can download and muck up your copy of mediamonkey.
i use to use jriver's musicjukebox until they screwed it up and told everyone to get their mediacenter. i then found media monkey, and am staying with it strickly media monkey i try to make different looking skins so media monkey does not look like any other player in the market. name me one with a light show?
you can't none have been made like that until i made my concert skin for monkey.
how many skins are there for jet audio? not many why? because they want 10,000 images changed for thier skins.
how many can send things in to jriver mediacenter ?
anybody as long as you're aproved by them to send in things.?
i made about 10 av effects for them when i was using it. they took them and tossed them out. and kept changing how they were made with every update to their skin because they did not want user submits back then. if they do now i don't know and don't care to send to them.
i use to use quicktime until they got to big for their britches.
same thing with wmp i still have them though so i can play wma files with out trouble in monkey.
i use to make skins for winamp but they wanted cookie cutter skins that all looked the same just different colors.. then they went to the modern looking players. and had too much to do to make those skins. then sold out to aol. so i am not going back to them either.
so why would i want to use skins that look like those or other media players on mediamonkey?
you call me crazy for wanting mediamonkey to be mediamonkey?
i call you crazy for trying to make mediamonkey some other program then mediamonkey.
