I give you a link to the "" page of my website, where you can see some screenshots of my KI skin, and download it (the max size of this skin is 1200x847). :)

Can you please give me your opinion about it?

It's been a week and nobody gave his opinion on my KI skin ... :?
Also, nobody have downloaded it to give it a try ... :(
But this page of my website have been visited.

What do you think of it? Is it good or not?
Do you think I should change something on it?
Nobody use Windows Media Player?

I'd like to make this KI skin for VLC too (if I can) when the WMP one will be finished ; so, if you give your opinion, it will help me for the VLC one too.

It is very kind of you, TCB, to offer this beautiful skin to us for download, but as for myself I don't use skins ... I like the WMP and my VLC specifically as they are, with a modern and neutral style, for music as well as for videos ... I use VLC predominantly for watching videos, so, I like to have a neutral and simple background around those, and I love the use and easy of my familiar hot keys etc., but thanks again nevertheless for sharing your creations with us, there might be other Uru nerds loving and appreciating them ... :D

Thank you for your post janaba1. :)

About the video functions, it's the next step.
The video buttons will be where the equalizer is, and the video area will be where the visualisations area is ; but in a "video" sub-menu, not in the music sub-menu of course.

About the hot keys, I think they works ; but as I don't use them, I'm not sure.
If someone which knows them can check and tell me if they works, I'll be thankful (you still can uninstall the skin after having tried it).

Also, the "hover" bubbles are supposed to be in your system language ; if someone can check it too, please ...

Hi again, TCB, I finally got around to try this one out ... I first had to find out how to install a new skin/design to the WMP lol as I almost never use this program and didn't know its specific handlings besides simple playback of whatever lol, and I've told you that I don't like to use skins in general, and now I once again know why lol ... :P

First, I really don't like the KI, it is just ugly (only in-game it fits), not y o u r KI, I mean t h e KI as a media player ... I just like that modern, comfortable, clean and shiny player style ... Besides that, there are not (yet) many convenient options at hand, so you always have to use the context menue to get to the media library etc. for other stuff etc...

Ok, but that's just me, my style of handling media players is not at all representative to the majority of people ... In general, I can tell you that it is working fine with what it can do through the available options, also the playlist is correctly showing up and the graghics equalizer and the visualizations are working beautifully (I'm just listening to 'System F - Out of the Blue', ahh and 'Era - Voxifera', which I haven't heard for a very long time lol ... I don't have very much music files on my hd as I mostly watch and listen to videos) ... I couldn't find an option to adjust the transparency, whenever the mouse focus on the player is lost it becomes almost completely transparent, which I don't like, but that's again just me ...

TCB, I hope that this short review of my tests tells you a bit ... This KI skin will appeal to real, r e a l Uru nerds lol, but I am not one of them, I just wanted to give you some feedback as for your kindness and generosity ... Many blessings and lots of fun further on ... :D

Thanks to have tried it, and for your feedback! :)

:oops: Yes ... To install a skin for WMP a double-click is ok: the skin will be copied in a sub-folder of WMP and be applied (so, you can delete the file you have downloaded).

To uninstall it, you have to go in the big WMP skin, to enter in the skin selection menu, to select the skin (it should be already selected) and to click on a red cross to "uninstall the skin and to delete it in the sub-folder of WMP".

There's no option in this skin to adjust the transparency, I don't know yet if it's do-able but I'll try to find an answer to this question. :wink:

Were the texts in German (I suppose it's your system language)?
Have you tried some hot keys and if you have, did they works?

Again, thank you for your feedback. 8)

You're very much welcome, TCB ... The hot keys are working so far and everything appears in German except the headers in the playlist, they're in French ... :D

Ok, I have to find why the headers in the playlist are in French, and to fix it for the next version of the skin ... :P
Thank you very much! :)

Edit:
Still no other opinion about my KI skin?

Très beau travail que tu as fait!

You wrote: "My KI skin..." and I looked at your page quite a few times already and it just popped out right in my face this time, KI skin isn't it?

On all the occasions, in the last few days, on which I paid a visit to your webpage, I was distracted by the furry monster with red ribbon, forgetting that you were mostly showing us your "KI skin" :lol:

So I always thought the cat was part of the deal...

What mixed me up a little too is the big icons you got for your Myst Series' games. Did you create them or did you download an app that can transform your desktop icons into those?

I'm using both WMP (for music including FLAC, do not ask how I did manage to make them work on WMP, it's purely an unfortunately fiddle from me, I have no idea what I did...)
and VLC (for movies & videos).

VLC is always running in full screen resolution so it disappears to let me watch the movie/video.
WMP is mostly hidden behind a lot of apps while listening to music. I don't stare at my PC while listening to music, I'm always doing stuff...like writing a post on a forum board... :wink:

So, I won't use it but that's a nice product that you made :D !

Neat skin, I lile looking at the pics on your website, I don't want it myself since I try and stay away from WMP these days. However this does bring back Nostalgia! :). Though back in the day WMP 7 was a pig and not worth running compaied to 6. I did love the visuallization that looked like you where going through a wormwhole :). Annways back on topic, keep up the good work.
