Thx for posting the new "list.bmp" . Looks very good in "Details" but sadly doesn´t look good in Album Art with Details. Bummer!

New download page: http://mediamonkeyskins.blogspot.com/20 ... -skin.html

Please use that from now on. And yes, my first year as a full-time student is now over and I can focus more on skinning. :)

Do someone with XP 32-bit here have the opportunity to upload wmploc.dll from C:\Windows\System32\-folder? Windows Media Player 11 has to be installed!

Thanks in advance. :)

Yep. Also, it would have been great if someone could take a screenshot of both the vertical and horisontal trayplayer using WMP11 in XP:

Hoping to release the new version tomorrow evening.

Nice skin - two questions. According to your blog "The newest version (v1.2) features bug fixes and the long-awaited vertical player!" How do I get the vertical player? I've tried moving the horizontal player with no luck to get it in vertical mode.

Also, any chance of getting the songs rating in the player section? Nice to be able to quickly update song ratings in the player area as I'm listening to them.

the vertical micro player is only for the vertical task bar.

you want it then you must move your task bar to vertical on the left or right of the screen.

and is it now possible to change the song-time-counter from counting up to counting down or both counting up and the total length next to each other when you click on the time?
that would be cool :P

thanks morten, to put your time into the skin ;)

Guest, this is something I will request from a skinner perspective. Although one can do something like that, it's not how it's supposed to be.

bob61 - I realise that this may be smart for some people, but this is not how WMP11 is. The most important thing for me is not to ruin the aesthetics of the skin and I don't feel the rating buttones would suit it there. Remember you can right click on the MM-icon in the tray anytime to rate the song playing.

Hi, Morten
Thanks for the update. It's looking really great.

There's an issue I'd like to report:
- In mini-player mode, the window frame of undocked Now-Playing window is not skinned correctly. See:

Are you aware of this, or is it happening only with me? :-?

Edit: in fact ANY undocked window has unskinned window frame...

I also like skins that allow direct rating via player, but I have to agree with Morten: putting the rating stars anywhere in the player would ruin the original WMP design. It's better to leave it the way it is...

@gege: Hi there finally again. Actually that entry is going to be replaced by Aero-glass (or XP-borders). This is actually something I'm waiting for Petr to implement.
