CLICK ON IT, IT'S ANIMATED ------------------------->

This is my take on Windows media player, a rusted on.
It's in 3D, animation, shadows, reflections, rotations, etc.

Don't forget that the preview is in gif format and it's not as good as the real thing.

This is how the animated icons works:

First get the docklet here:

1. put folder "Animated Shortcut" at:
C: \ Program Files \ RocketDock \ Docklets

2. then copy and paste the folder "Animated Icon" at:
C: \ Program Files \ RocketDock \ Icons

3. copy and paste "An animated icon" icon to the folder "Animated Icon"

4.rightclick the dock and add Animated Shortcut

5.rightclick the new empty space on the dock / configure shortcut

6.set the image (navigate to "The name of the icon" in the Animated Icon folder)

7.set the path

8.set the title

Enjoy and leave my some comments, thanks.

If your icons disappear when you restart your PC, this is the solution:

At all with Vista/7 I contact PolyVector and get this answer:

This is due to Vista/7 security not letting RD write the docklet settings to Program Files. A quick fix would be to install RocketDock outside of "Program Files" like in C:\RocketDock...

So I close my Rocked Dock and I move the RD folder from the Programfolder to C:\ -and it work.I make a new start and all my configure are not deleted.. :-)

Yes, we write to each other privately and we understood each other.
I don't think it's possible... it'd good, it's my only icon who's not animated.
I'm using VLC but I think windows media player is the most common use app I didn't see any in 3d.

Voler's trying to say he wants an animated image for th icon of a stack docklet.
Although he should be asking the creator of the docklet, and not you, lol.

Good icon, btw (I use WinAmp, though)
