There is another way to change the skin of WMP, i even do have Transparent try creating an account in it is cool site with a lot of customize theme. Speaking of WMP skin.. by changing the wmploc.dll of it. Try googling around and you'll find solutions using also Resource Hacker. Go to and search for "WMP skins" . Try also Zune Player : Zune Music + Video |
