Introduction to 3.x Skins


Unlike previous versions of MediaMonkey, version 3.x no longer permits the use of skins designed for Winamp. This includes both 'Modern' Winamp skins (for use with Winamp 3.x/5.x) and 'Classic' Winamp skins (2.x). Winamp skin files have the filename extension .wsz (Winamp Skin Zipped) for version 2.x and .wal for version 3.x.

Skins specifically designed for MediaMonkey have the extension .msz (MediaMonkey Skin Zipped) or .mmip.

The default skin for MediaMonkey 3.x is Morten's Glided Skin; the other skin included in the install package is VitreousBlue. Users seeking a skin similar to Winamp's default skins should consider Nohitter151's conversion of Black Monkey.

Note that only when using skins that have an included 'mini-player' format will the mini-player option be accessible from a button in the upper-right corner of MediaMonkey (adjacent to the minimize, restore, and exit program buttons). The mini-player is the feature through which MediaMonkey shrinks to basic player options and which most resembles other MP3 player programs.

Installation of Skins

To install a MediaMonkey skin:

  1. Download the .msz / .mmip file (You may need to right click and use the "Save link as" or "Save target as" option in your internet browser).
    1. For .wsz/.msz files copy and save it to the MediaMonkey Skins sub-directory (usually C:\Program Files\MediaMonkey\skins\).
    2. For .mmip files, just double-click the file and it will automatically install.
Special note for users of Internet Explorer: (Internet Explorer may automatically change the file extension of your skin file to .zip. If this occurs, manually change the extension of the file back to .mmip or try downloading the file with a download manager or another browser such as Firefox or Opera The skins can also be in zip files so don't just change the extension, First explore the zip file.
If you see one file called install.ini in the zip file then rename the extension to mmip, if only an msz file is in it then unzip and put the file in the monkey's skin folder. If a folder and other files are in the zip file then rename the extension to .msz and place it in the monkeys skin folder.)
  1. Restart MediaMonkey.
  2. Go to Tools | Options | Skins and select whatever skin you wish to use.
