By 1 I believe you're referring to this indicator code:
"STATUS" - This will attempt to show Play|Pause|Stop.gif from the CURRENT SKIN's FOLDER into the defined area. (RR Only)
If so, are you by any chance placing this indicator over any other indicator or button ? cause that would probably not work.. but if you are placing the indicator on its own separate space, then let me know so I can test/fix it, as it's supposed to work.
