Publisher's Description

Winamp Deskband is a toolbar docked to the taskbar that is fully configurable and fully skinnable. It comes with a built-in sleeptimer and playlist resumer. It also supports system-wide hotkeys for almost everything. Furthermore, it supports multiple languages and it allows you to play your bookmarked files without clearing your playlist. It can be used to control Winamp 2.x and Winamp 3.0 and even Windows Media Player.

I like the piece of software; though i'm not totaly happy about some of it's mechanics. SirDarius i've seen your WDB, it's pretty decent, though it lacks features. You won't happen to know what he was going to change the name to would you?

This desk band is a good and featureful soft, even though I think the resizing of the taskbar is a bit of a problem...

if you're looking for a simpler alternative to this plugin, check the Winamp Desk Band I've made: http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details.php?id=82271

Please note that since my plugin has been first released in 2001, I'm not responsible for the names similarity.
The author of Winamp deskband promised me he would change it when it would be complete...

I have usesd Winamps Tray Control and an external sleep timer before so I'm happy to have a better solution now... if they only could change this taskbar-reszing-thing ._.

I like this very much.
It has great potential.

I wish I could control its length in the task bar and that it won't change the size of my taskbar.

Definitely crushes other 'control' plugins. Does have a stability problem.. Works pretty well with 5.01 (since other's are having problems, I won't update). Problem #1: The instability seems to appear after the bar has been running for a bit (and a few songs have played). Once you try to move the bar, explorer will crash and not come back automatically. On NT/2K/XP/2003(?), hit CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to get task manager. Select File, New Task, and run explorer to get your desktop back. Problem #2: The ID3 tag reading and tooltips seem to take a really long time and hangs explorer while updating the toolbars. Otherwise this is a great app probably shouldn't be running on Servers, especially in while it is still BETA!!

Great idea and implementation for the most part, but it also has instability issues. Could use features like customizable/variable-based title/time scroller, and why not start winamp when you press the "active media player" button?

Crashed itself and desktop on Windows 2003 Server. Reason? May be WinAmp 5.02?

Absolutely brilliant. This application puts all other winamp toolbar and hotkey programs to shame.
