Custom Visualizations? - Choix - 2009-03-31 17:12

I am wondering if (and how) it is possible to add your own Visualizations for when music is playing.

I remember a few years ago I used to use one called Corona in WMP it is the best Visualization I have ever found and would love to try and get it working in XBMC if that is at all possible.

Corona site: http://www.btinternet.com/~richard.asbury/corona/

Any help would be appreciated. Big Grin

you do code to use them with our api. note that they need to use opengl

Well I wouldn't know the 1st thing about doing that but I might look into it when I have some more free time.

Anyway advice on what I would need to learn?

Be cool if all the xbox ones where put in the pc version, like milk drop etc... Tongue

Xbox = DirectX, Linux port = OpenGL
so unlikely but patches are welcome

Windows version has Milk Drop. It is called ProjectM

programming is all it takes. opengl and basic understanding of how to build a .dll
