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, voilà, 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 can be split into six logical segments, consisting of the following files:

1) Main:
