Hmmm, I downloaded your player and it doesn’t work at all. Probably because I’m running Windows 98, the screenshots look good but it’s a shame that inferior versions of windows aren’t supported. I have a question though, did you write the skinning code from scratch or are you using some 3rd party control/dll?

He made it, should be enough for him atleast
You don’t have to code things that’s ‘better’. My music player for instance doesn’t support plugins, nor skins etc, only good thing about it is it’s size ( 6 kB with XP look compared to winamps 658 kB, but mine will grow a bit before it’s finished – aiming at 10kB max + fmod DLL ).
Sure, it will probably not be used outside this house, but it’s fun coding it

QuickPlayer runs on Win9x/ME, NT/2k/XP and should run on any future version of windows. And it doesn’t look worse then the windows media player (MPlayer2.exe)
If you don’t like it… maybe you should install windows XP…? (QuickPlayer runs under XP and supports these new appearances!)
Anyway, the author of the Apollo-player said:
‘Sound quality is not skinnable’
I’m using QuickPlayer as a background music player as well as for testing music files, it’s fast and reliable.
Ok, i took the sourcecode, thanx

Enough features? Some feature missing?
The reason you can’t use Simple Amp 2 on Windows 9x/Me is because I am using the TransparentBlt function in msimg32.dll (i think that the filename)… It is only included in 2k/XP, allthough perhaps it works if you just copy that file from Xp/2k to win9x…
I wrote the skinning system myself, but it’s not very customizable so it wont work outside Simple Amp.
I will fix that download script error soon, I don’t have the time to do it now during the christmas holidays, but before new year it will be working for Mozilla/Netscape/other users.
Thanks for the feedback.

- Skins may look good, but notice that “Sound quality is not skinable”.
- System requirements: Microsoft Windows 2000/XP? Why isn’t it running on Windows 95/98/Me/NT? Not willing to suppoert this suppirior Microsoft operation systems??? Or just not tested? Or some stupid requirements, e.g. Internet Explorer, Internet explorer shell32.dll, Media player, MDAC, … ???
