    I wouldn't bother trying to skin windows media player. Anything you do skinning wise will only work in IE. I recommend flash video. www.gotoandlearn.com has some good tutorials. The Riva 2.0 FLV Encoder is decent when it comes to encoding video files to .flv format though the FLV Encoder that comes with Flash 8 IMO is the right tool to use. Good luck.

    Every player on that site is done with flash. Maybe you are looking for a flash mp3 player then? Also its not the skin that is the problem its the javascript functions needed for anything to work. They are IE only.
