3. Now select "Use custom skin" option present in "Interface" tab and click on "Choose..." button.


4. It'll open a new window to select the skin file. Select the downloaded .VLT file and click on open button.

5. That's it. Click on "Save" button and close VLC media player window.

6. Restart VLC player and now it'll look-like Winamp 2 classic interface.

Almost all buttons work perfectly and you'll really feel that you are using the good ol' Winamp 2 media player.

In future if you want to revert back to VLC default interface, again open preferences window and select "Use native style" option. Close and restart VLC to take effect.

  • Winamp is my prefered music player. I've used it before WMP itself on an old PC. So sad the guys at nullsoft are shuting it down. So the last version is going to be version 5.7.

  • Thanks for this man!

  • How I hate when people say that Winamp died. Winamp didn't died, Radionomy bought the rights to it and now they are working on it. The new version supposed to appear in 2016.
