You can significantly reduce the size of the DLL by modifying the icons to only include sizes/colordepths that are actually used by Windows. Enabling PNG compression also helps a lot.
Useful sizes are:
256x256 (XP colors)
48x48 (XP colors)
32x32 (XP colors)
32x32 (256 colors)
16x16 (XP colors)
16x16 (256 colors)

With this you can fit 40+ icons in less than 2 MB!

Looks good but do you know anyone that can do that for MPC?

There are not enough colors to do that. Why not look at the file extension to know the format? If that's too much hassle you sould get a better file manager. I use servant salamander for like 10 years now. It's awesome.



Next icon pack will just have the sizes 256, 48, 32, 16px. I've made a couple more tweaks and cosmetic changes too. The DLL file is almost ready.

PM'ed you with newly complied DLL's

Below are the extension icon's I have done, If you see a mistake or one missing please let me know.

Code:

Why not use default icons? : P
I was just trying to help. BE edition already does this. Its a bit contradictory trying to make shiny icons and then recommend an old fashioned file manager (not discussing is bad but...)

I don't get me ranting lol. Of course the program has been updated to a newer version in all that time if that was not clear.

I did try different colors. The closest one I was almost happy with was a greeny color. But since all the media files are handled by the same program, it makes sense that the logo on the icons are the same too.

Nice icons mr.duck, especially glowing ones.

But could you change video picture to clapperboard instead of equalizer ?
It will be better to tell the difference between audio and video in image too, not only text

no, and i would guess a lot of this magic is due to some native osx components.

p.s. and exuse me ignorance, but what are format/file icons used for this days? (i suppose most of the modern desktops would generate actual media thumbnails?)

Yeah, I do see one gigantic mistake - the ugliest piece of code since Jeremy Duncan's C' parade.
Please do world a favour and start using switch() { case: } statements instead. The code will be far more readable, less error-prone and easier to maintain for everyone.

If a case-set is used to resolve a single variable, use a compact case-set:
Code:
iconindex = (ext.CompareNoCase(_T(".3g2") == 0)? IDI_VIDEO_ICON
	: (ext.CompareNoCase(_T(".3gp")) == 0)? IDI_VIDEO_ICON
	: (ext.CompareNoCase(_T(".3gp2") == 0)? IDI_VIDEO_ICON
	: IDI_???_ICON;// the last item doesn't have an evaluator, but can often use a comment to clarify why this item is the last option
This also helps the efficiency of the output assembly, as "iconindex" can probably become type-cast as constant (const in C++ code).
If possible, resolve some more math:
Code:
iconindex = (!ext.CompareNoCase(_T(".3g2")) || !ext.CompareNoCase(_T(".3gp")) || !ext.CompareNoCase(_T(".3gp2")))? IDI_VIDEO_ICON
	: IDI_???_ICON;
I just love optimizing boolean logic.

Glad you like it. Maybe the logo does not represent an equalizer, but levels of luma, chroma, etc . Afterall, a clapperboard is so analog and MPC is so digital.

I just go and change bits I understand, I am mostly clueless about programming itself

Nope, clapperboard is identified with film industry.
Film stock is analog, but not clapperboard. t's only tool used before recording.

So can you create icon pack with clapperboard ?

Identified with the film industry, not with media playerback software then

As you say, it is a production tool. So it would be more suited to a video editor maybe.


The icon needs to be unique and recognisable to that specific program. Who says it has to make sense? Firefox makes no sense for an internet browser. Or how about foobar2000... they use an alien cat head thing for their logo. It works.

mr.duck, in case of firefox it must be a story about registered names (i think it was firetruck before, just kidding). with foobar it's about developer having a cat, so no it doesn't make sense in a general view. for players i find filmroll http://radio.ubbcluj.ro/ro/wp-conten...-film_roll.jpg to have some sense, if you need to have a retro-look...

Hey guys.

First of i want to say that i think mr. duck's icons look very nice, although personally I'm still getting used to the whole equalizer.

Now on the discussion being had right now.
Virtual_ManPL is asking if mr.duck could make a 2nd version of his iconpack, using the same style and colors, but based on a clapper instead of the equalizer.

I think its clear that mr.duck personally does not really like this and does not want to spend any time creating it (if I'm wrong, please do go ahead and make it)

I'm only asking about making a difference between audio files (equalizer e.g.) and video files (clapperboard e.g.) in his pack, nothing more
Not clapperboard for all files

I am slightly surprised by the amount of people that think it looks like an equalizer and appear to not already recognise the logo.


But I did think that this was the default logo already. I typically see it several times a day if I watch any TV or videos. The logo concept was copied from MPC-HC itself...




So I was not expecting anyone to have to get used to a new logo/icon for the media files so much.


Yes, I don't really like the idea of doing a capplerboard logo. I wanted the same logo for all the files. If I could make a clapperboard logo in the same style and colors as the 'equalizer' logo then I would try. But I would not say I am an artist, so the chance of that happening looks low at best right now.

And this is how it is (I think) commonly done.

Aren't the file icons (usually) supposed to represent what software they're played with and not what filetypes they are?
