    I think you can create your own media player by using flash.... Action Script 3 will support to develop the media player...

    Now since your concern is a windows platform, I think its better to go with C++ as your development platform. Now you don't need to think deep into "media playing" as such. Windows API can do this trick for you 😀

    The current windows media player is based on windows API. So you can find a lot of tutorials on it.

    All you have to do is focus on creating the interface 😀
