Winyl-Player mod
« on: September 18, 2021, 11:19:59 AM »
Recently, I took a fancy to the Winyl player, having "upgraded" from Winamp (don't laugh). I only listen to lossless files, so no streaming off the Net. I've looked at JRiver and similar players, but being a frugal kind of guy, Winyl suits me just fine.

The problem is, Winyl has been hard coded for a minimum window size that exceeds my TV screen size at the resolution and text size that I prefer.

I'm wondering if someone who is C++ savvy, can change the source code to a smaller window setting and recompile it for me. I only have Delphi and Visual Basic experience, not C++ and I'm certainly not interested in putting in the hours to learn C++ just for this.

Had a look at the code, the minimum size compiled into the code is 20x20.
The actual minimum size is determined by the skin.
For each skin, there is a "Skin.xml" file with the sizes defined. See, for example, line 4 in the "Dark" skin:

Oh wow! Thank you for that. I'll try it and report back here.  :Whoohoo:

Yes, mine too. But have a look at Winyl. And with the https://www.deviantart.com/zorro72/art/ZorroDark-769399980 skin it looks great.

@DACMan1  It's works. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  :notworthy:

Bye-bye Winamp. You served me well, but time to move on.
