Mplayer Skins

Im confused at how to install skins for mplayer. I unpacked the tar.bz2 file that they came in but I cant seem to find any installation files or file that is the actual skin.

I moved all the files to /usr/local/share/mplayer/ but I still dont know how to get it to work?

The man file says something about mplayer -skin name
But mplayer doesnt even realize skin is a viable command!!!

Help please Thanks!

firstly, did u compile mplayer from source? if so, u had to enable gui during configure. if u did do that, then.....

all skins should b in /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin. y don't u try opening up mplayer than browsing for a skin then. or, in your home directory, u should have a .mplayer directory. there should b a gui.conf file there where u can specify which skin to use. c if either of those work.
