Will you make a dark/black version of the icons instead of just the light blue?

I found a BETA release of CCCP that includes a version of MPC-HC that is compatible with this skin/theme. Here is the official download link from CCCP.

Or at least, would you please provide a download link for v1.3.2 of your theme? 99.9% of us are using this with CCCP, and CCCP only has MPC-HC versions 1.7.4, and 1.7.6.

Hey, you should make a version for MPC too. There's MPC-HC and MPC-BE. I think this should be called MPC-FT (Flatro theme) because you know, you got your own icons and extensions and style. It would be a great addition.

While the thought of compiling a stand-alone MPC-HC installer that includes the Flatro theme has crossed my mind (would be easier for the not so savvy end-user), this project will continue as just a theme.

Dirty-Wondah, if you are running the 64-bit version of MPC-HC, please place the x64 mpciconlib.dll into the following directory: C:\Program Files\MPC-HC

Once you've done that, open up MPC-HC, navigate to the following: View > Options > Formats > "Association" section > Select "Modify"

The same dialog will pop-up again. Navigate to the "Association" section and click the "All" button (also make sure you have "with icons" checked) then click "Apply".

If your icons still do not update, feel free to let me know. Keep in mind, both x86 and x64 mpciconlib.dll are working just fine and have been tested on several comps. running either Windows 7 or 8 without problems.

Your screenshot implies that the mpciconlib.dll is still not being applied to your video file icons. Trying re-building your icon cache with the following .bat - www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/…

Make sure to restart your comp. and retry the steps mentioned above your comment.

Thanks for your awesome work :).

There is one problem with the x86 version where the surround sound icon in the statues bar are still the same ugly old one after applying the theme.

the x64 one is fine.

Wow! This is so awesome! Truly beautiful icons and resources! I even moved back from MPC-BE to HC!

Only one issue I found: 
- WebM and MP4 icons are showing as audio icons.

WebM and MP4 are actually video files. MPEG-4 audio has M4A extension as a standard.

Could you please fix those on the next update, changing them to video icons?
Also... will you keep releasing newer builds with your theme? Or do you plan to make an auto-resourcehack utility to allow us to manually update newer builds?

I really think you should make this a permanent project, it looks amazing!

Hello guimagination, thank you and I appreciate the feedback!

I've gone ahead and updated the Flatro Theme to v1.2.1. This version addresses the MP4 and WebM icon fixes.

When time permits, I'll be updating this theme in the future to correspond with the latest builds for MPC-HC.

Enjoy!

Your icon theme doesn't seem to be taking effect for me. :( (Sad)  Do you have a hacked version of mpciconlib.dll with your flatro icons in it?   Or could i have the icons and i'll try and edit mpciconlib.dll myself?

bicycleestate Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014  Student Interface Designer
Skrell, when replacing the .exe files, please try the following after: Right click file any media file > Open with > Choose default program > Select "MPC-HC" as your default. This will refresh your file icons.

Skrell Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014
tried that and it didnt work...the thing is i looked inside your *exe using resource hacker and found no icons in there for the filetypes...so i guess i'm shocked you got it to work without editing the mpciconlib.dll file.

bicycleestate Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2014  Student Interface Designer
Unfortunately, I was unable to reproduce the problem you are currently having. I've tested MPC-HC .exe x86 & x64 files on Window 7 OS and Windows 8 OS on several different machines. Working just fine.

Note: If you're using Resource Hacker, the "Icon Group" folder > 128 > 1033 is the responsilbe folder for also overriding and changing the file image icons.

However, I've gone ahead and updated the Flatro Theme to v1.2. This update now includes a working "mpciconlib.dll" for both x86 and x64. All 43 supported formats have been customized.

Make sure to follow the instructions provided in the download and enjoy!

1.  Thank you SO SO much for your time and efforts!
2.  I think there might be a problem with mp4 files.  Every other filetype icon works but that one.   Can you double check it?
