The media controls (buttons) when you use taskbar preview have disappeared randomly.

I have recently done a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro x64 and installed the latest version of foobar2000 with the columns_ui component which allows taskbar preview. It worked fine for a few weeks before the buttons (play,pause etc.) on the taskbar preview randomly disappeared. Iv'e tried re-installing foobar but no difference was made.

Also note, itunes can still display media control buttons in the task bar preview.
The only thing foobar related i did before it happened was use OblyTile to create a custom tile for foobar.


Thanks for any help.
