Winamp - Visit

A lot of people have Winamp these days - if you don't, then check it out via the link above. It is a completely FREE all-purpose sound player, and is especially good for playing MP3s. I wholeheartedly recommend it. One of the great things about it is that you can customise the look of Winamp by using a "skin". This changes the whole look of the Winamp window very quickly and easily to suit your mood or interests. I have created quite a few such skins myself, and have put a selection here for others to download, completely free as always.

Most skins here I made using a skinning program (see my Skinners page). Many of these skins I have created from other people's pictures - I hope that the people who own the rights to the pictures do not mind. :-) If you recognise any of the pictures here as being something that you own the legal rights to, and you object to my making it available for download here, then please contact me to tell me about it. Thank-you. Click the preview picture to begin download, and select "Run this program from its current location" (or whatever the equivalent is on your computer). This will automatically download the skin, install it into Winamp, load Winamp and bring up the new skin so that you can see it right away! To the best of my knowledge, this self-install cannot possibly carry any viruses as it's the exact same file format as an ordinary .zip, just with a different file extension. However I cannot accept any responsibility if your system suffers as a result of the download or install.

One other thing - there are plenty of other places to download skins than the official website. So if you can't find what you're looking for, try searching for Winamp skins in a search engine or look up Winamp skins in a web directory. And if you still can't find what you want, then why not make it yourself.

[Winamp skin preview - Aaron Carter v2.2]

Aaron Carter v2.2

Aaron Carter - singer. Date of birth 7th December 1987. It's an old picture of him, but it's one I like. ;-) I know this skin makes him look as though he's got 8 fingers on his right hand, but that's just the way these things come out. :-p

[Winamp skin preview - Grand Theft Auto 3 v2.0]

GTA3 v2.0

GTA3 - the latest sequel from the Grand Theft Auto series to hit the world. It was about time I made a skin for this, as I'm a big fan of the game. ;-) Check out my GTA3 webpage for more information. You will probably want to set Winamp's playlist text size to at least about 14 in order to see the text properly, because I've used the Price Down font from, which is very similar to the GTA3 font.

One of my favourite cartoons, this was originally shown as short episodes during "The Animaniacs". It wasn't long before they got their own spin-off series. Egad, Brain! Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

[Winamp skin preview - Queer As Folk A v1.2]

Queer As Folk A v1.2

Controversial gay drama series, set in Manchester, England. First series (about four hours total) screened on UK TV in February 1999, and was repeated one year later, followed by a two-hour sequel, which concluded the story (original and sequel are available on VHS and DVD). Queer As Folk has been imitated by an American version, which I believe has tried to turn it into an ongoing soap opera, but I've never seen any of that. This is a shot from the opening credits.

Queer As Folk B v1.2

Vince Tyler (Craig Kelly, left) and best friend Stuart Jones (Aidan Gillen, middle) are pushing thirty, hitting the gay scene every night, and wondering where their lives are heading. Then Nathan Maloney (Charlie Hunnam, right) explodes into their lives. He's fifteen, and instantly falls in love with Stuart. But Stuart doesn't do boyfriends, and the resulting events are dramatic and at times hilariously funny. These three main characters are shown here as they appeared on the front of the soundtrack CD.

[Winamp skin preview - Queer As Folk 2 v2.3]

Queer As Folk 2 v2.3

The sequel to the original series Queer As Folk. Not quite as good as the original, but still well worth watching as it introduces new storylines, and draws each character and the story as a whole to their respective conclusions. The ending itself is a little Python-esque. This I made from my own scan of the DVD case.
