Any chance the fullscreen bug will be fixed? Or could you at least disable that option if not, because it causes the program to crash?
Would be much appreciated, love milkdrop :)

Fullscreen didnt work for me... so installed the DirectX update (even though I have loads of games that have updated it recvently)

AND I deleted the milkdrop MSVC runtime dll from the plugins.

Fullscreen now works =)

Ooooh. Scratch that.

Clicking on the MusicBee titlebar (focus off milkdrop) THEN press ALT+ENTER works

Clicking on milkdrop and pressing ALT+ENTER black screens and crashes

Hope that helps others.

Steven -- Ryan Geiss put the source code up for anybody to use as of May 15, 2013. You can get it here --> http://www.geisswerks.com/milkdrop/

Maybe you or someone else who knows how can use it to bring new life into Milkdrop.

Was there any changes? MB is already using Milkdrop2. If you are having any problem running the plugin, consult the following thread. It should work regardless of your Windows version:

hopefully this will work better with desktop mode and also better with winamp visualisers generally:

the installation instructions for the milkdrop visualiser itself are on the first post

its my own implementation of desktop mode so it might not behave exactly as desktop mode in winamp

Hey Steven, thanks for the updated EXE, this is wayyyyy better now. No more crashing on exiting full screen in a weird way, much more stable. However, I have noticed, and I think this has been brought up before, that the visualizer does not really respond that much to the music, kind of just does its own thing. Do you know of anyway to fix or improve this? Thanks for all your hard work, I came to MusicBee after Winamp announced their shutdown. I gotta say I it really is like an improved Winamp, except that it has way more features and is much more customizable.

Working fine for me. Try with different output/sound devices setting on player preferences.
Also, many presets are not good at detecting the beat. "Rovastar - Future Speakers" preset is my first choice for testing beat detection.

I tried other sound outputs but its the same for all of them, here are my current settings. I tested that visulizer preset in Winamp and its much more responsive, in MusicBee it pretty much is flat and not doing much. https://www.dropbox.com/s/piza5842pxoqf70/settings.PNG
