Hi there,

I love the original Milkdrop visualizer a lot, but struggle with the old fashioned plugin, which started working unreliable recently and causing constant crashes for me nowadays.
Right now - I just found Butter Churn Viz (https://butterchurnviz.com/)

"Butterchurn (2018) is a web implementation of the original source code of Milkdrop released on the WinAmp forum in 2007."

https://webamp.org/ Butter Churn in Action!
https://github.com/jberg/butterchurn/ Butter Churn SourceCode
https://www.wikiwand.com/en/MilkDrop



Immediately I tried to find a way to use it with / respectively getting it implemented into MusicBee somehow.
Since it can be displayed in a browser natively, I just wonder if it could get loaded/displayed into MusicBee as a Website somehow too ...

"Butterchurn v2.6.7.1e-complete (2020-08-20) is easy to implement with example webpage and extended functions and implementation manual."

There exist a Butterchurn Chrome Extention as well.

Otherwise, it's maybe just an inspiration but also a reminder to focus the attention again onto a very beautiful aspect of musical enjoyment - Visualization - and the support of these kind of plugins.

Greetings

I don't use visualizers, nor do I use Chrome,  but you might be able to link to this via Preferences > Internet > custom web links. You'll have to experiment on your own, but this might provide some insight in getting started with custom web links (scroll down a bit to see it)

Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

user raul has added a lot of visualisers recently so it might be worth checking those out
