A new release of the popular Quinto Black CT skin for the good old Winamp player is available. Version 3.2 adds a number of interesting improvements, including new VU Meter (digital horizontal), a FullScreen option for Album Coverflow, and more!
Winamp is one of the most popular media players available for Windows. It's also one of the oldest ones. From my personal experience, it is one of the most versatile and feature-rich media players, has an enormous variety of plugins and skins available and is stable enough for every day use.
Winamp is still loved by a huge number of users. Many people continue to create nice skins for this classic media player. One of them is PeterK, who is the author of the popular Quinto Black CT skin.
Quinto Black CT v3.2 comes with the following change log:
- added: new VU Meter (digital horizontal)
- added: FullScreen option for Album Coverflow
- added: wide Side Panels
- added: new options to Notifier's context menu: "Show/Hide song's duration" + "Show Track"
- changed: Loudspeaker Box, Progress Bar, Volume Bar and Notifier change color via RGB Color Changer
- changed: Text "ShoutCast" to "Online Radio" on Playlist Editor's Fileinfo area
- changed: Notifications context menu names are changed so Winamp does not mix it with Bento and Modern Skin.
This also means that you will see those new entries in English.
- removed: following modes from VU Meter (analog): Exponential, Hybrid (Exp+Lin), Hybrid (Log+Lin), Logarithmic.
Only Linear mode is left.
- removed: Light Reflection from Album Coverflow
- removed: Playlist Directory (too buggy and I could not fix it)
- removed: Light Blue color from the Visualizer on Main Player
- removed: Brown scale color from VU Meter (analog)
See the following screenshot.
