    Windows Media Player Visual Style? (wmploc.dll)


    Hi Guys, I'm new here

    Windows Media Player, yeah it still exist on Windows 8
    but the UI's still same like windows 7, so I have an idea to make new UI based on metro UI style for Windows Media Player.

    there are some problems that I have encountered, about like where should I change / edit the resource (bitmap, image, etc)

    I'm using a resource hacker to open the wmploc.dll, but still confused which one should I replace.
    I didn't get instructions to do this, so can someone can help me to find what resources must be replaced?

    I do not like Music Player from Windows 8, because Music Player Windows 8 doesnt have an equalizer .


    Thanks

    Welcome to the Eight Forums. Most of their resources/images are in the 257 folder. Here someone has part of it broke down WMP 12 Resources by ~Legacy-Code on deviantART Jerry

    Hmm

    I got an error
    I finished edit all resource, and replace it to wmploc.dll (System32 and SysWOW64)
    but WMP player doesnt open (when I click WMP player doesnt show anything)

    then, I changed my mind to make a WMP Metro Skin
    this is my concept, Please comment/suggest something. This is just a concept
