Use skins to change your look
One of the accessories that helped fuel the growth in the MP3 player/ripper category was the extensive use of skins. This creative application allows users to change the way their player/ripper looks when viewed by the user. The level of creativity is limited only by the skin creator’s imagination. We can now explore the wild world of skins, and be ready to be amazed.
Step 1: What is a skin?
A skin is an add on application to your software which allows you to change the look and feel of a variety of computer applications including your player/ripper. You start with a standard player and you build upon it like a blank canvas.
Step 2: Where do I find skins?
Skins are generally available at the website where you downloaded the player. The company that makes the software encourages their use. Look around the download or special skins section.
Step 3: Do skins affect performance?
No, skins are merely a shell, but the underlying engine remains the same. The only difference might be the extra visuals associated with the skin will likely chew up some processing power and make other programs run slower.
Step 4: Are all skins universal?
No, skins are created for specific players. Because Winamp has been around the longest and set the category for skins, it has the most available. However, every major software company site has skins to download for its particular player.
