Nobody said this is gonna be a new MediaPlayer. Nobody said it's gonna be a mini-framework to rebuild this UI in your App. It's just the approach to use the Sparkle-Palette to rebuild its origin UI. So why do you badger him with such futile statements?
I like it - even if it's quite useless for me
The only thing I really do not like is the ClickOnce-Installation. Please upload your executable in a zip-Archive or publish your project with code - but do not use ClickOnce.

If you have a look at most of the applications in this forum, you will see that they do something different. They may contain a similar visual interface, but intrinsically they do something different. They (the applications posted) have a function or purpose if you will. You are trying to re-invent the wheel and I cannot see why. This is more like a 'coding for fun project', because why would I use your media player, when I have one already?
Even if you finished this and got an exact replica, so what? I already have WMP11 and that works fine. If you look at your bullet points above and Phi'ls notes at http://www.componentfactory.com/blog/?m=200805 it is clear what the sparkle theme is for.
When will you media player have video, be directx compatible etc.? Please take this as constructive criticism, but you are certainly re-inventing the wheel here, and most users are not going to be surprised.
