YummiYogurt

YummiYogurt is a fun colorful WinAMP skin that despite the odd controls, attempts to be easy to use.

If you know WinAMP, then you already know where to click to do things. If not, the important flower colors to remember here are yellow, green and red. Yellows mean you’re changing song, Green means GO (Play music), Red means STOP. Just like a traffic light, eh? Easy to remember. You also have Pause, Eject, Random and Repeat buttons next to all that.

To change the volume, you grab the ladybug, and move it left or right. As you increase volume, the flowers grow more. Lower the volume and the flowers sink into the ground. It doesn’t really make much sense but it looks cool.

The butterfly next to the ladybug is the balance control. I would suggest to leave the butterfly alone. They do not like to be bothered.

The worm crawling across the middle of the grass, shows you how far into a song you are. You can grab the worm and move him to any part of the song. Think of the worm as the needle on the record. What is a record you ask? You are too young.

This skin is best viewed with the EQ visible, since it’s a garden of freaking flowers! The EQ has been replaced by flowers which you help grow up or shrink down. Problem being, when you arrange your garden here, the music starts sounding weird. That’s normal.
