Build. Hack. Play. It's just what we do.

All the comments about Winamp and the end of its development, made me go and reinstall it in all of its (glory).

One of the things I had to rehunt for, was a skin browser, the kind that lets you preview, rename, delete etc Winamp skins, independent of Winamp itself. Windows Explorer doesn't have a way to preview skins like you can with other file types. So here's this thing:

The program runs without installation. It doesn't even need Winamp to be installed at all, in order to view whatever skins you may have stored in some folder or other. If you *do* have Winamp installed, it can autodetect your skins folder.

Warnings: Though it works, more or less, for me it crashes on close. No biggy, I guess. Also, if you use it to Delete a skin, you have to refresh the view with F5. Lastly, it only supports thumbnail previewing of "classic" skins, not "modern" ones.
