Windows Media Player very little can be changed with Windows style builder I was able to change some of the text on the left side and the album text here are the locations but bear in mind these will change text colors in other areas.

Fonts, Colors & System Metrics > Fonts & System Metrics > WINDOWSTEXT:COLOR

Explorer & Shell > Explorer > TreeView > TreeItem > SelectedNotFocus > TEXTCOLOR:COLOR

For some tutorials look here VistaStyleBuilder - Index
and you can join here for free Virtual Customs and here is a link to their tutorial section Windows Style Builder

I guess you may have to try a different theme or use a different browser with a custom browser theme because that is controlled by the background color at
