Afraid of balloons - HATE media player icons!

I HATE hot air balloons (chock it up to a BAD experience). Therefore, the Windows Media Player v.11 icons really freak me out. I hate using the program, but sometimes have no choice.

is there ANY way to change the program so the image does not show up within the program. I can change the look of each files icon – but the program lists video files with the damn balloons.

Any suggestions?? – thanks!

Use Winamp. :)

Ouu, and for video sakes, VLC.

Sorry for double post.

I can't seem to get the screenshot on here – but in the latest WMP, the video files within the program are shown with a bunch of H.A.B.

Also, as much as I love VLC for video, I have to use Windows Media Player to sync my mp3 player. Even though I don't use WMP to play video the rotten images still show.

Is there a way to delete the icon from within the program??

I think you can hide it with album arts. ...

Not sure if you can delete it though.
