    Hi. I am looking for an old program that is called Skinnertoo v2.08. Archive name: sknr208.zip. It makes Winamp 3 skins. If you have this program, or know where I can get it, please let me know. Thanks. :-)

    Google brought up some reasults.. I found a link here: https://ftp.sunet.se/mirror/archive/ftp.sunet.se/pub/simtelnet/win95/musmisc/

    Is Winamp still a popular app? I know it was around 20+ years ago as was the original XMMS for Linux. Back then I had the #2 stream on shoutcast... mainly due to the fact that I only had 8 channels available. I fed it with Winamp
    and a few plugins I had which I can't recall the names. My playlist took
    days to generate and I had enough music on my server (it was a former DSL.net mail server) so that it didn't need to restart for over 3 weeks straight. I would regenerate a playlist each season of the year. This would capture new music I'd add as well so the thing sounded somewhat fresh.

    Fun times.

    Hello Nightfox;

    I don't think WinAmp is nearly as popular as it used to be. I was
    still using WinAmp as one of my favorite music players for quite a
    while, but I stopped using it because it seemed that WinAmp lacked
    support for UI scaling. When I got a 4K monitor, WinAmp looked really tiny on it and was hard to read, so I stopped using WinAmp.

    I'm sure it was quite small to read with such a great monitor.

    I remember WinAmp's development stopped years ago, but I think perhaps development had been picked up again at some ponit.. I could be wrong though.

    They also stopped dev on XMMS, they came out with XMMS2 but I never found it half as good as the original. There were some really cool plugins and skins
    for it as well. One I had was an analog VU meter that I put some peak LED thingers into it on... was sorta neat. If I can recall, the biggest issue
    with the original XMMS was remote attacks.

    I think now a day most people just settle with apps like iHeart, spotify, etc.

    I still have my library of my own music on my computer, so I like having a good music app to play it. I don't want to always rely on streaming.

    I alway have a local copy of anything I consider worth keeping.

    I use Music on Console as a music player. It is a terminal program but it is quite handy. No issues with resolution and scaling...

    Same here, and I have backups. My main system storing it all is an old Netfinity 5000 with hot swap Raid 5. That's saved my butt on a few occasions since SCSI drives are OLD.
