The Winamp Base Skin
The Base Skin is a copy of the default skin built into Winamp. All you have to do to skin Winamp is paint over or replace a skin component with your own design and voila, your own personalized version of Winamp. You can replace any or all of the components in a skin. Anything you don't replace will use its Base Skin counterpart. Naturally the Base Skin components will look out of place, so we suggest changing every file.
The Base Skin Breakdown
The Base Skin can be split into 6 logical segments which consist of the following files:
