sXnc, thanks for the skin. I was using some previous version where toggle time elapsed/remaning didn't work, however current (downloaded from here) works OK.

Disclamer: I'm using the newest Winamp v5.601 compiled 9 Dec 2010.

Three questions:
1. Is it possible to remover "Barracuda" logo? The previous version which I used was free of it;
2. Could you please add a counter which shows lenght of all tracks on the playlist? I miss this much from the base Winamp skin.
3. Moreover, while "autosticker" is on - between playlist and the main Winamp window there is a huge gap (ca. 54-55 px) - is it possible to remove the gap (or at least to reduce it)?

best skin ever. used it for a while now. Need some color themes. Different color than just blue, or even branch out into a white frame? .... I hate it when it doesnt match my wallpaper and i have to use a different skin.
belph Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009
i love this theme and using it for a long time now. But i was just wondering if you can make a dfx barracuda theme :D That would be great.
A-dsgn Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009
Awesome skin! Great job. High contrast, simple, clean, ... It looks that good, that I don't want to change, even though it lacks some functional features.

Have you ever thought of upgrading to Barracuda 2.0?

Fleetwing Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2008
Doesn't work on Winamp 5.541
FNHot Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2008
I LOOOOOOVE THIS! ..... can you create some color variants for it? it doesnt match my white theme i've got going on. I didnt think it would be hard to find a nice looking sleek white skin, but it really is!
mchenry Featured By Owner May 8, 2008
Great skin, good job.

I can't choose this one or your MusicPad Classic v1.5.
Elpants Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2008

-speed optimization for vis maybe?

agree with titus and tarrith, please add this preference and this would be the best skin on this site!
GalyPoland Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2007
just gr8 !!!! fantastic work : )
Necromandicon Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2007
Love the look of the player, not a fan of it not having the forward and back track buttons, but apart from that its awesome, keep up the good work. The same theme in red would be awesome as well.
TitusGrey Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2007
Or one that remembers the preference of opened or closed mode?

Anyway, just wanted to say, I'm still using this skin, and I think it still kicks ass. Best skin ever! Hoping you'll do more work with this one..
tarrith Featured By Owner May 15, 2007
I love your Winamp Skin Barracuda.
Simple & Stylish.
The only thing that annoys me about it (still use it though) is that I have to open the control buttons everytime.

Cant you make one with and without the buttons?

artist00 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2007
the best winamp skin out there!!

but you have to work on your playlist man!
scooter :ouch:
Sacr1fe Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2007
Wonderfull skin. I've had my fair share of skins and this one is the best imo.
Sleek, clean, easy to read and easy on the eyes.
So its definatly my default skin atm and will be for a long time. However. Some tips to make it even better.
-Option to have drawer always on.
-Color themes
-Fix missing textures (I have a green scrollbar in my playlist, looks weird)
-Make it a little less picky about where u click to raise volume and song duration.

Just minor things that would be make it the number 1 skin of all time :).
ronsix Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2007
can you make the drawer always on? that would help a lot ^^

TitusGrey Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2007
Oops, I just found out the button slider... Still curious about the rest though... :dance:
TitusGrey Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2007
This one is awesome! I love this skin, are you going to do any more work on it? Maybe a buttoned version, or more colours? Or maybe a complety different version.. Anyway, keep up the great work!
Glendatu Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2007
I love that skin already :)
Just run over it and it's just awesome! :D

I simply adore this skin, nothing better than it around the internet.
GrailQuestKnight Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2006
Very nice well thought out skin.

I second the request for an Orange background.
radicaldr Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2006
hey, great skin! One thing, though...

If you could add a 'close' button to the Media Library, it'd be perfect :)
