    Second odd Vlc Media Player Question?

    First of all I know there's a way to change program icons such as firefox all you do is right click shortcut change icon. Simple.

    I would guess its the same way for vlc media player. But here's the odd question part.

    Is it possible to have 1 program with 2 different icons.

    For example if I use vlc to play .mp3 files and have a cute headphones icon and want the media player to have the headphones icon while playing .mp3 files and then have a different icon for the vlc media player for playing video in .mp4 and .flv files. So all audio file will have the headphones icon for the player itself not the file type icons same for video file types like .mp4 and .flv.

    Like I said its a odd question.

    For example if I used vlc for the audio .mp3 files and used the headphones icon that would be fine but then I would need a different player for the videos then I could use my video icon. For the player.

    If you have windows 10 and are playing vlc media player there would be a orange cone on the bottom with a line under it. I would like to know if I can switch the orange icon to a set of headphones for playing 1 file type and have it show a different kind of icon for videos.

    Like I previously stated its a odd question. hope someone can help me with it though. Plus if I can't do this with just the vlc media player please suggest a second free player.

    Hi, launching a program from a shortcut is one thing- you can easily change the icons for shortcuts and have more than one shortcut with different icons. But I presume you're talking about the icon displayed on the taskbar whilst sthg is being played?

    I would think the only way to change that would be 'Resource Hacker' and you'd have to change the icon in the program's executable file. Really not worth the effort, and would be replaced on any program update.
