Let me introduce here my WMP12 Library Background Changer
This application was a first application what I ever have released to public. I start it in early 2009 and yesterday I have updated it for Windows 8 support.
So, it supports Windows 7 and Windows 8 both x86 and x64.
Note for Windows 7
WMP12 Library Background Changer allows you to use six hidden library backgrounds what exist in Windows Media Player 12 in Windows 7. Also it allows you to replace any of six WMP12′s default backgrounds with custom image. Special button serves to synchronize Windows Media Player 12 Library Background with you current wallpaper.

Here is possible result in Windows 7:

Note for Windows 8
Since Windows 8 some features of WMP12 was removed. They are that six backgrounds, secret registry tweak to switch beetween them. Also now it is impossible to disable image background.

nice little app, sadly wont work for me , i think it may have something to do with the custom wmploc.dll i have installed.

to be honest i stopped using wmp some time ago, as i was sick of it whiting out constantly. wmp11 was better
