Hi, guys!

I'm already in the process of creating a completely customized, visually 
good-looking icon set. It still takes some time, because I am busy with 
the FFmpeg picons at the moment. Then I'll do the audio icons. And at 
the end I also redesign the icons for the controls. I have some great 
ideas on how everything can look more beautiful.
