Problem with Player on Windows

I have been using the player for "decades" on mac and windows for audio only by locking the height to ~20 pixels and it has always been visible regardless of whether it has a filename or not. It also appears in 8 on mac.

Let's see if it does better with the new player for windows in 8.1 otherwise will submit a bug report

I suspect that without a filename, there is no size to calculate. So
it's visible but has no width or length.
