Version 206 is comming along nicely now - the zip file reader is done and the new playlist control is looking pretty solid. The only job left on 206 now is the import of old format skins.

Once this is done - the plan (at the moment) is;

- New skin system for the rest of the player (float actives/multiple targets/animation/better language support in song titles)
- New skin selection system

- Import other players skins (any preferences on this one???)
- The new "TrackStack" system (will replace the current dodgy random play with something more useful - also support for "Play this track next" in the playlist)

For other players' skins, I would say Winamp3, QCD, and Sonique if possible.

I've got a better Idea: Write a skin converter programm. That will keep Coolplayer small and people who don't need skins from other programms [like me winking smiley ] as well as the ones who want them are happy.

P.S. excuse my bad english

how about a option to not use a skin at all, i nearly always have many many program open on my computer and a mp3 player will bog it down so i cant open anything else, coolplyer is the best thing i have found in relation to ram usage grinning smiley
but i would still just like to see a little box with a few buttons the song name and that be pretty much it, when i play mp3 and oggs i dont open the program to look at it, i open it to play music

Can you say "needless bloat and useless consumption of system resources"????????

The filename tab for the playlist doesn't seem to be resizable. =P Hmm...and is there a way to use the old default playlist skin...that is, no skin so that it uses windows default colors?

Kim: It sounds like you're either looking for a commandline interface for coolplayer (which i believe already exists), or a super-lightweight skin to work with.
The skin I could help with. If you'd like, email me, and i can whip out a quick one (w/o playlist) that has those features on it in a very short time. =)

I think it would be nice if it could support winamp 2.x skins, if only because there are so many of them out there (and some of them are very good indeed).

What about OGG tag support like title number, artist info, track title and so on?
