If you follow this maual you should get Winamp Visualizations to work with Freebox. Just follow the basic steps.

1 - Fresh install Freebox ( any ver. will do )
2 - Fresh install Winamp 532_full
3 - Download vis_milk_jamie_tweaked.zip and extract it to program   files/Winamp/Plugins  Check forum for URL to download it.
4 - Open Winamp and select "view" from the menu bar. Now select "video" and "visualization" from the drop down menu.
5 - Very important. Select "Switch to Visualizer" just under the menu bar.
6 - Select "options" from the menu bar. Then select "Visualizations -> Select plug-in" from the drop down menu.
7 - Select "Milkdrop 1.04b(Jamie's Tweaked Version)" and click on "configure" at the bottom of the plug-ins window.
8 - At "Common setting" there is 3 sections. Select the "Display adapter setting" from the "Fullscreen settings" section and select you second monitor.
9 - Select "Start Fullscreen" at the bottom of the same window.
10 - Select "Dual head" and configure to your setup.
11 - Select OK when finished and close Winamp.
12 - Now run freebox config, open Freebox and setup options. Don't forget to select " Use Winamp visualizations for audio".
13 - Now close Freebox and restart your computer.

If you open Freebox again your Visualizations will work.
Kizer, you can put this in the manual if you like.

It works perfectly for secondary monitor.

In my current jukebox however I only have one screen, if I remember correctly there was a way to have this visualization work on the primary within the NOW PLAYING window only ?

I am trying to figure that out as we speak, if you can give me some pointers I can add pertinent information to the guide

Thanks

coffee

Sorry, I am not sure if it is possible. I haven't tried it yet but I will look at it and let you know if I find something.

No, there was never a way to have this working in the now playing window. Sorry...

Hey Barcrest, can you remove rest of postings from this thread and leave only the tutorial ?

draginit

awsome awsome!!!  it works perfectly now..my juke never looked better! you guys rock,,, and the tutorial was very easy to follow!

-one question tho, when i messed with it before, i remember the visuals would show the title and artist at the first 5 or so seconds of the song, but now it doesnt do that.. anyone know how that might work too, or where in winamp to tell it to do that?

This has never worked... Winamp doesn't know what is playing so there is no way to display this information when using it with freebox... Sorry.
