will there ever be a version of VD that sits in the toolbar like most virtual screen apps have ?
This will be easily done when the author adds command line options to it. I already do this for foobar2000. I create a folder called toolbar - add in five shortcuts to foobar2000.exe, and then append /play, /pause, etc, and rename the icons accordingly. Right-click, Toolbars, New Toolbar, navigate to your special toolbar folder. Turn off icon labels and the title and you're set.
