I use the DX players in my themes, but I set it to use my default media player, not object media. I don't even install object media. DX player will use your choice of several media players installed on your system. I almost always use one of my media players when playing music. But then, I don't care about visualizations, and such. I do not understand how to use active x controls to make better media players. I would like to add an equalizer to my media players.
When I try to use WMP or WinAmp I can't get menu function to work. AS far as the equalizer part that's all built into the DXplayer and so far that part does work for me. I have the equalizer included in the MRX4 theme take a look at it to see how it was made. If you have any questions I would be glad to help out.
I am on Vista SP1 and volume and balance work for me.
Thank you for that information. Now I know it will work on SP1
