# How to remove box and text from media9 'draft' mode?

I am making a document that includes many audio files. I also need to create an identical version that does not include any audio files. Since I am including hundreds of audio files, it is not ideal to simply remove the audio code. I tried using \usepackage[draft]{media9} but a box still appears with the text 'APlayer.swf'. Is there a way to remove the box or at least the text in draft mode? Or is there another way to easily make a version without the audio files?

Here is the code:

\documentclass[10pt,oneside]{article}
\usepackage[draft]{media9}
\begin{document}

\includemedia[
width=0.3cm,
height=0.3cm,
activate=onclick,
transparent=false,
flashvars={source=11.mp3}
]{}{APlayer.swf}

\end{document}


Below is a screenshot of the box and text that I would like to remove:

• Could you redefine the \includemedia command in your preamble so it provides no output? Then simply comment out to enable the standard behaviour. – penguinpreferred Dec 2 '14 at 23:44
• I tried adding \renewcommand{\includemedia}{} to the preamble but then '[ width=0.3cm, height=0.3cm, activate=onclick, addresource=rec2/Rec2-11.mp3, transparent=false,flashvars= source=rec2/Rec2-11.mp3 ] APlayer.swf' appears in the pdf. – Brad Dec 2 '14 at 23:58
• It would also be nice if the text box were still there but just transparent so that the text spacing and layout is the same as the one with the audio. – Brad Dec 3 '14 at 0:02

\documentclass[10pt,oneside]{article}
\usepackage[draft]{media9}
\let\oldincludemedia\includemedia
\renewcommand\includemedia[3][]{%
\leavevmode\phantom{\oldincludemedia[#1]{#2}{#3}}}
\begin{document}

aaa\includemedia[
width=0.3cm,
height=0.3cm,
