Damn, your media player is ugly.

Damn, your media player is ugly. You should fix it. This site has one of the best collections of skins for various programs I have ever seen under one URL. They almost make WinMedia worth it.

Am I missing something? I couldn't find any skins to download, just a bunch of marketing hype. Link to the actual skins, s'il vous plait?

Link. Note that the most interesting ones are for Window Media Player 7 and something called Mediascience Sonique.

Do WinAmp skins have to be rectangular?

Whoops, sorry, that link doesn't go direct to the skins either. Over on the left side, under "The Factory", click on "Our Portfolio." They're organized in pages of five.

Their skins might be nice (I've yet to find any) but their website design skills suck. I've clicked on just about everything on that page and have found nothing interesting.

Huh. Nothing could make WiMP worth my time.

I like RealJukebox skins.

That site is such an obvious rip-off of The Iconfactory.

not even a decent player that can handle media and not make everything look fuzzy and gross while buffering 100 times each minute?

I swear, there's nothing there to actually download. Jfuller, you did notice the frameset means that index2.asp is the only URL that appears in the address bar, no matter where you click?

There's a "downloads" section, but that leads to the players at their vendor sites. There's a demos section. There's a guidelines section.

I'm afraid this site IS all hype, unless somebody can come up with actual "skins". They may create them for some high-falutin' clients, but they don't make 'em available here.

i think the design is nice, and the skins are great, although i really cant stand WMP7.0.

dayvin- i looked at the iconfactory site and it was not even close in design... ?

for those who cant find the skins - just go to the portfolio section - if you look closely you will see a bolded link that says "Download this skin".

fuzzy = encoding & connection
buffering = encoding & conection
