    How do I get that taskbar music player back? I had it a while ago, but i reformatted and can't find it again. Someone said it came with WMP9, but i've never used that before, but used to have the music player.... and I tried XP power toys but couldnt find the one that included that... anyone know where i can get it?

    It should be in the official Microsoft Powertoys as far as im concerned, its a nice little app.
    It was probably just some sort of test for Windows Media Player 9

    WMP needs more skins that look like WAMP, such as the Mafia bar skin (I like that one). etc. yeah.

    You can get a plugin for windows media player (8 only i think *shrug* ) that allows you to use Winamp 2.x skins for it, cant remember where the heck its from, but i remember thinking it was cool when i used it :D

    Ahar, im not going senile!
    here is the "PowerToys for Windows Media Player for Windows XP"

    Which includes a converter so you can use Winamp (2.x) skins with Windows Media Player. Here's the description...
