vis revolution!

check out the "background visualization" option in the beta of sonique2 (there are four white icons horizontally and three vertically in the upper right of the main window; it's the second of the vertical ones)

that's absolute madness. i HATE visualizations, but i'd use that if winamp had it.

While you're at it, can you just copy the entire Sonique 2 program code? I mean, that would be A LOT easier than me switching to Sonique 2.

I'll say something constructive, when you post something intelligent.

I'm really getting sick of you. I want to know why you can't suck it up, and right-click -> Media Library? I might be able to understand if you had a horribly disfigured hand, and were unable to right click. I'd also understand if you were posting about the main mode not having a play button, but you're not. I'm going to say this one last time, suck it up, and right-click.

wrong thread, by the way.

look man, let's just play nice, ok? really. i'm actually talking gui here and you have come back with juvenile retorts every step of the way. if it doesn't interest you, fine, don't chime in, it's not as though you have a personal stake in it.

You know what's funny? You were the one cross-posting the ml links in to this thread. You brought on my ml response yourself, and this was the right thread for it.

How is this a "wishlist" topic? Sounds like it belongs in GD to me.

more like a confused, "wasn't that obvious from the first post?" sort of thing.

Sorry, but requesting Winamp to steal a feature from another player seemed too retarded for me to take it seriously...... you were joking right?

Yes, but you're talking about something very unique to sonique only. I mean it's not a general feature such as audio ripping, you're talking about using the unique sonique vis in winamp.

video/burning/ripping dont count, dont know about the library.. and portable support doesnt count either, and even if it did, winamp doesnt support portables without an optional plugin..(although video/ripping/burning/library are all optional plugins too >.>)

There is no reset button on life... but the graphics kick ass

well, visualizations are a pretty standard feature of audio players these days. i'm saying that sonique has a pretty badass way of showing them (have you even looked at it?). i'm not suggesting that winamp pick up the particular settings or plugins, but rather the mode of presentation.

even then, unless it's a trademark or something, it's fair game. ipod support, play stats, and smartlists were pretty unique to itunes (and to some extent jriver i guess) until winamp jacked them (and i'd bet that the ipod is a trademark, even...)

that's precisely my point. it was ok for winamp to incorporate all of them, and maybe this one won't be any different. up for the legal boys to decide.

then it wouldnt be a winamp thing, it would be done through a plugin(that you could create if you wish ) and if it became popular enough, maybe they would adopt it and include it in the full installer (like jtfe)

and by the way i'll freely admit that it's so cool and unique (sounds like neither of you have checked it out yet) that incorporating it might not make the lawyers too happy, but hey, it's just an idea...

i dont feel like installing another media player on my computer just so i can determine if some feature that i wouldnt care about(i dont like visualizations at all.. not one bit) is cool enough for winamp to steal

fair enough. i hate them too, and i saw this on a friend's computer first. requires a reboot, so it's even more of a pain...

this issue was discussed repeatedly during the development of wa3 and the wasabi skinning system, and it basically came out as being FAR too resource intensive. Thus, the system was never developed to do it.

However, some skinner did manage to pull it off. I believe you will find it submitted over at the guiolympics.
