Absolutely lovely skin mate. Registered just to leave a comment for it since nobody has yet (though it's only been up a day or so). I especially like the graphical browser, but the over all look is fantastic and, you picked the right name for it, smooth.

I was looking for something that wasn't too cluttered but offered many of the commonly used functions I like to get to. This fits the bill perfectly.

Thanks for the time you spent making this.

I don't understand how to set the cover art to my songs. I know how to search for the covers with the program, but I don't really need that. I already have all the cover art of all of my songs in my computer. Is there a way to use the covers I already have for my songs with this skin?

@carmenm: the album list plugin can be accessed over a button in the new version, but i think i will integrate a new tab with a bigger window for the graphical browser and embed the album list panel next to it. check back in a few days ;)

This is absolutely great, but I'm having a few problems.

1) The lyrics aren't showing. If I click the button to search them manually, nothing happens. Any idea what I need to change?

2) Next album shows up blank (and shows the default "no album art" record player pic). I'm not sure why this is, because I have another album in my playlist set to play after this one.

1) download the latest version and see if it works now.

2) how do you save your album art? it'd be best if you save it as folder.jpg or cover.jpg

your skin is just perfect^^

but there are 2 small bugs:

-when i select several songs, if i clik on "properties" icon, it shows properties of only one song, whereas with right clik then properties i can modify properties of several songs at the same time

-now, sometimes lyrics of another song that the one which is played are showed... and also it shows some text which is a bit "ugly" whan no lyrics are found

but very good job !!
i love it lol

radecke says:

you can change the text that is being showed if there are no lyrics. just go to the settings and you'll find the option.

and the other two things are not my faults ^^ these are things i can't change.

Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble with coverflow. I've followed all of your instructions and changed all the settings as you said to on your homepage, including copying all of the code.

However, my coverflow looks like this (sloppily-drawn arrows to illustrate my problems). Also, you'll notice that my reflections seem a lot more pronounced than they should be. Assistance?

maybe you should update your graphics card drivers to the latest version. if that doesn't help you can post your problem here:

the RAR file I downloaded doesn't include the coverflow component and only has 3 tabs (playlist, album art, options). Am I missing something?

Sun, May 4th at 02:19pm (9 years ago)

Can you update this? It seems most of the components don't work with Foobar 9.6.2.

Mon, Feb 2nd at 08:11pm (9 years ago)

I really can't seem to make it works... I downloaded everything and copied it in foobar folder. After choosing Panel UI everything what happens is switch to some ugly window without any features. In Panel UI setting i cant set it to smooth.pui . it is just impossible for some reason! It looks really wonderful. Please help!

Could you update this skin to make it work with latest versions of foobar (1.x) ?
The version of Foobar you require for this skin is not very stable on Windows7.... :(
