Winamp Easter Egg: Change Transparency with Each Beat of a Song

Posted February 5, 2006 by MickeyMouse in Entertainment

This winamp easter egg will cause your skin to change transparency levels with each beat. It is a cool trick to show your friends.


Winamp is famous for their easter eggs. This one is probably the most useful I have seen.

These keystrokes will cause the winamp skin to pulse in transparency with each beat. Here is how you do it.

    1. Open winamp.
    2. Select any modern skin.
    3. Make sure you are on the front of the skin (This is where the play, stop, etc., buttons are located.)
    4. Hold down CTRL+ALT+Shift, and type in nullsoft.
    5. Play a music file, and the changes should be obvious.

This is quite simple. Holding down CTRL+ALT+Shift while typing in NULLSOFT will give you this trick.
