Vista Stick by juanchis Vista Stick by juanchis
Vista Stick Media Player Skin.
Version 1.0.8

I decided to make a miny version of the newest WindowsMediaPlayer, but ended up with this.

All graphics have been recreated, except the Play and Pause buttons.

Small Windows Media Player 11 style tittle bar. Interchanging Artist, Song and Albume Text. WMP11 Look-a-like progress bar with redesigned thumbs.
Skin has been tested on WindowsMediaPlayer 10 and WindowsMediaPlayer 11 (Both on Windows XP and Vista).

The font Calibri has been included to work correctly with skin. If using WindowsXP please install in C:\Windows\fonts if not already installed. If you are using Windows Vista please don't install anything.

I love the design I've been looking for something like this for a very very long time but (there's always a but) I would like to position it on my taskbar and so it seems better to have the player controls on the right side and also all the icon edges are very sharp and jagged so need to be smoothed. Please send me the files used to make this such as psd files and provide the program used to create this and I will improve it and send to you s you can upload as your work.

Can you make the circle around the play/pause button smoother?

It's like jagged and stuff.

Great! I like this better than the Mini Mode in WMP11
chemicalrubber Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2007
Nice! A bit rough on edges though. Nice compact and useful skin.

excellent, already use this layer to the much time
Chico47 Featured By Owner May 2, 2007
Hi, this look great, but i'm having problems running it with WMP 11 on XP pro.

I've got it to work once, but every other time it has just come up with the default skin.

Is there anything that i am supposed to do other than put it in the skins folder?

the best i've seen but is it available for download coz i dont see the link...

wekk done, youve done a great job.
juanchis Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2006
Thanks, Really makes me want to continue skinning.

Yes the skin is availble for download. On the top left of the image there should be some buttons, Click on the one that has a PC icon and when u put your mouse over it it should say download.

I am so happy to find this skin. I was actually looking for a small skin (I was using the default miniplayer at first), when I came across this!

Escellent work here!

Where does one extract this file to?
juanchis Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2006
You shouldn't have to extract it, when you download the file it should be in a .WMZ and it is not, then create a fold in C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\Skins and extract to there.
rubikscubefreak Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2006
Yeah, I figured it out. It's really nice looking...I think I'll keep using it! :D
Dustmuffins Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2006
Awsome, but I think the Play/pause button rollover can use a little tweaking to look more like wmp11, but other than that, it looks great.

Great, thank you, been looking for a good skin for ages.

Criticism: the black edging round the play/pause button looks a little ragged, esp when compared to the ends. Agreed on the minimize button and maybe also a full-mode button would be nice.

Still luff it though :D
life-is-a-dream Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2006
Ohh my!
This is exactly what I've been looking for!
Well.. almost exactly haha.
I was looking for something a bit smaller, but still, I was looking for something basic, with volume control, song title, and play/pause button.. and preferably a minimize button.

I can't believe I just found this!
Thank you so much for making it. :]
The-Mim Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2006

非常好看 但边缘有些粗糙的感觉
juanchis Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2006
LOL. Can you say that in inglish. Thanks
chemicalrubber Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2007
It means "Very nice, but the edges has a bit of a rough look"
Sharingan-Culte Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2006

i like it very very nice job ;)
ears1991 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2006
Hehe awesome :)
But why vista stick?
If it was vista wouldnt it be glass lol ;)
juanchis Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2006
Why Vista Stick? Cuz I hade no idea on what do name it. I stuggled in finding a Name for 3 days so finally this came up.

Yes if it was vista it woulbe be glass but WMP does not support 32bit alpha blending and I would have to set a transperancy level, witch made the skin look very very ugly.
ears1991 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2006
Fair enough :P nice work
DarkoTM Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2006
precious!! skin man
BWM Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2006
Definetly the best vista/wmp11 skin I've ever seen. It's great.
