    Hey all,

    I hate the way the icon of realplayer files on my comp. Is there an easy way to download a new one, or change this somehow? it's just so ugly, its this little dog-eared piece of paper...

    I think you may be able to find what you're looking for if you delve into RealPlayer's package contents. (Find the app ctrl-click it, and click show package contents)

    1. Find an icon you like (icns file)
    2. Back up RealOne Player.app
    3. Right/Ctrl-click the RealOne Player.app and choose Show Package Contents
    4. Navigate to Content -> Resources and find the file RealPlayerDocs.icns
    5. Replace
    6. Restart
