Not trying to replace the Winamp gui, more interested in skins for view. However, scripting brings a layer of function to winamp, or any other application. One idea that comes to mind is the "Fatal Car Accident Audio Player"... lets say your driving along, flicking through the stations, then suddenly BAM, CRASH, SMASH. Next thing you know, your lying next to your car, and feeling your life essence slipping away, you hear Barry Manilow singing "Copacabana" on your radio. "Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl..." Now by adding a layer of function to an audio player, you could have it detect the collision, perhaps a port to the airbags or something, and play something more suitable to the occasion, maybe "Stairway to Heaven" or anything by the Crash Test Dummies. Betcha Winamp can't do that :) TB
