WMZOpen was the first program
to be developed under the original SkinDoc project. This program
designed to work in a similar way to archive programs like WinZip only
for Windows Media Skin files.
The program has the following
This allows the user to open
an existing file and view a list of the contents.
Extract Selected Files
Extracts all of the selected
files to a location specified by the user.
Extract All Files
Extracts all files in the
currently open skin file to a location specified by the user.
Adds a single specified file
to the currently open skin file.
Adds several files to the
currently open skin file.
Directory Into Skin
Creates a new skin file out
of the contents of a specified directory.
All selected files are
deleted from the skin file.
Delete Files Of Selected Type
All files with the chosen
file extension are deleted from the skin file. This is useful when
creating a basic template file from an existing file.
Uses the internal viewer to
preview the selected file (or first in the case of multiple selections).
This works with sound, text and picture files (with the exception of
animated gif files).
SkinDoc2 is an existing
program in as far as it is under development. Code is in the CVS and an
early alpha is available.
Presently although a lot of
functionality is present under the skin the program has not yet reached
a state which makes it useable for anything more than a preview.
The program is designed to be
fairly flexible, through the use of template files which are xml based
files different media players and versions can be catered for. Widget
files are also xml based and cater for the variety of widgets available
for a media player to use.
The first version of SkinDoc2
will contain a certain amount of internal hardcoding to cater for the
differences between various types of media player. Therefore template
file and widget files will only cater for version changes between
supported media players.
Future version planning
involves making SkinDoc2 a fully configurable plugin based ide.
As can be deduced from the
name this will be a version of WMZOpen specifically for Winamp skin
