I love media monkey's interface it's so easy to manage the libraries. It is even easier then wmp11 is.

foobar requires some configging to get it likable, while MM is easier to use from the get go.

I would love a "cirq" skin for Media monkey. Originally made for winamp.

Is there a MediaMonkey skin that looks like Windows Media Player 10?

Darling I have to confess something. I did pay the neighbour a visit one day, but it didn't make me feel good. But now I'm more determined you're the one I'm looking for and I'm sure we can improve together.
It could have been the lines of a scene in a cheap soap story, but they are true.
I did install foobar2000 on my computer (in fact it's still on it, but the library is f*cked right now because I changed the driveletters) and implemented the foolars skin which is nice and clean. It works perfectly and...ah well...let's get on with the but:
but you need to learn how to use foobar. each search ended up in the playlist, even though I didn't want it to (intuitivity 0.1)
but the nice interfaces (elegance, fooXXXX, ..) are just hacks and unsupported in the most recent version

I really, really hope the next version of MediaMonkey will focus on excellent output plugins and the opportunity to have a more clean interface (ribbon implementation as used in office 2007 or switch workspaces as used in adobe products)

Hmm! It is always o.k. to take a look into other programs to see innovative things. I as a foobar user did that with Media Monkey - i use very often the feature to burn data cds and the tagging iconsistencies script. But if you take a look so please open your eyes! All the people are wrong who are praising foobar for its customizabilty: foobar was never meant to the most customizable player - take a look into winamp preferences and you will see hundred times more options. That misunderstanding was provoked by some third party components and by a bad designed Ui component "PanelsUI" wich won't work anymore with the newest versions of foobar. Foobar never supported and will never support skinning - PanelsUi was just a big hack to give the illusion of skinning.

I just can second what roving cowboy said: it is nicer to see new skins than to have a copy of an already existing skin.
If someone is interested: In Media Monkey i disabled the skinning - very cool option! :wink:

Victor.
SAME THOUGHT HERE.

it will be a killer app.

Oh wow. That would be beautiful. I wholeheartedly second this suggestion.

You wouldn't go to a Jungle, Concert, Diner or Truck to listen to, or to organise your mp3's... cause they don't do what you want. Just like the other programs don't do what we want - but we still might like the aesthetics of them.

so while we personally don't want MM looking like another player, it should be easy to understand why someone does.

Dale.
dale? the jungle is like a forest or like a park?

i find that statement funny. :D
why because i drove semi truck where i did go to diners, parks, and the truck, to listen to my music and i been to concerts and know other drivers that haul the stage lights around to them and sleep in the truck, or work on their computer in the truck while the concert is going on, so they might organize their mp3's there at the concert.

so that is a funny statement to me. :lol:

i do understand why some want it to have some different options. which is why i make the different skins. different strokes for different fokes.

lona i forgot to say in the other post that the stage light show is not a picture only. it is the volume meters for left and right so that is how the light show is controlled.
