Files available for Download - Updated 8th January 2023
On every page that allows you to Download a Skin or TrackInfo Plugin you will see a list of options/buttons in the Left Panel that allow you to download the Skins, Plugins and Bundles on that page as *.mjp or *.zip files.
The options/buttons are arranged in 4 sections to allow the user to download:-
Individual TrackInfo Plugins or Skins as a MC Version Independent *.mjp file,
Individual Bundle(s) for MC30.0.47 or Higher as a single *.mjp file,
Individual Bundle(s) for Earlier Versions of MC as a set of *.mjp files inside a single *.zip file.
Individual TrackInfo Plugins, Skins or Bundles as a MC Version Independent *.zip file
*.mjp files are used as Triggers for the MC Package Installer
Once they are downloaded you simply Run/Open them to install the relevant Skin, TrackInfo Plugin or Bundle.
*.zip files are Compressed Folders/Files that have to be Extracted/Unpacked to make them usable
Once they are downloaded you have to Extract/Unpack the Folders/Files they contain.
*.zip files are mainly used when the user wants/has to install a Skin or TrackInfo Plugin Manually,
or by Users who want to Modify/Customise the Skin/Plugin before installing it,
or by Users who have Modified/Customised a Previous Version and want to make those changes to the new version before installing it.
To Manually Install a Standard View Skin or TrackInfo Plugin you copy the folder containing the files for the Skin or TrackInfo Plugin to the :-
J River/Media Center nn/Skins/Standard View Folder (for Skins)
J River/Media Center nn/Visulisations/Track Info Folder (for TrackInfo Plugins)
where nn is the Version# of the copy of MC you have installed.
What are Bundles and why are they listed in both the "Bundle(s) for MC30.0.47 or Higher" and "Bundle(s) for Earlier Versions of MC" sections?
Every ET Skin and TrackInfo Plugin has at least 2 Variants and Bundles are combinations of Skin Variants, Plugin Variants and Skin + Plugin Variants in a Single Downloadable File.
Prior to MC30.0.47 the MC Package Installer could only Install one Skin or Plugin each time it is run/used.
The ones in the "Bundle(s)for MC30.0.47 or Higher" section are for use with MC30.0.47 or Higher; they download a Single *.mjp file which when run will install every Skin and/or Plugin in the Bundle,
The ones in the "Bundle(s) for Earlier Versions of MC" are for use with earlier versions of MC, they download a *.zip file that contains 1 *.mjp file for every Skin and/or Plugin, in the Bundle.
Unpacking that file will result in the Individual *.mjp files being placed in the same folder and you have to open/run all of them, one by one, to install every Skin and/or Plugin in the Bundle.
