Just been to both the above site (via Altavista Translate) and theMPlayer website. I can find no listing for transparent skin. Can you provide a more specific link?

You can do that through the command line. Whereas you would normally type 'gmplayer moviefile.avi', you now type 'mplayer moviefile.avi'. The transparency effect is simply amazing, so good you can't even see the GUI at all

I think you did ger what I wanted to say. Normaly, you have a beautyful skin, but in my case, around the skin isa darkgrey box.The skin is visible and normally the darkgrey shouldn 't be visible and so transparent. and this should not be visible. did you get it. otherwise I will make a screenshot.*g*

*grins* Why thank you

Sorry, couldn't resist that one. I'm still not quite sure what you're referring too, possibly because I've never seen it happen before; though I do now it's not a transparancy effect skin you're looking for. The screenshot could very well be useful, if only to make it certain to everyone the exact problem.

I think you may have been looking at a Karamba theme. I use one to control Xmms and it sits on my desktop. It's transparent and looks like a skin.
