Thanks, but the files are not blocked.

Maybe also interesting: sometimes MM works vor 30 seconds or so, untill the error occurres. when I click OK, the error window opens again.
But I can use MM normaly, there are no problems, only the error window is there, the visualisation is embedded.
When I close MM the error window reopens 10 times or so, until its really closed.

Sorry to bring up a month old thread but I just wanted to see if there has been any further development on this. :)

This question really should be asked to the MM developers instead.

Sorry to bring up a nearly year old thread, but:

I am using the Visualisation Embedder script i.e. with milkdrop. Currently when I start MM 3.0.6.1190 the visualisation embedder panel automatically opens but the visualisation itself - milkdrop - does not, so I am left with the empty panel unless I manually open the visualisation (i.e. with ctrl+alt+v or from the view menu). Is there any way to get this all to start at once on MM opening? From other posts it seems possible, but the script alterations - the ones suggested in this thread- didn't appear to work for me.

UpdateL I have now removed this and will start from the beginning. A step by step guide to getting this to function in said way would be great.

I'm not using that script anymore, but I think you have to start the visualization manually. Also, as you said, this topic is old and if you are using one of the last releases, there could be some incompatibilities.

It actually seems to work fine in MM 3.1, Fraxav. No problems at all yet. I've used it (with Album Art for G-Force) a few times, not often. Nice one, Steegy.

But as you say, Unchange, you do have to do all that fiddling around.

I think I've mentioned in another of Steegy's scripts' threads that I'm really hoping that an official stance can be taken on Steegy's great scripts. He's said quite clearly that he's 'away' from this forum. When he came back in and made a post and then someone said "good to see you back" Steegy said "I'm not back; I just came in to have a look" or something like that. Then he was directly asked for permission to take over the script (or amend it and post the amendments, you know) and Steegy said "the stage is yours".

Steegy has shown himself clearly concerned about common decency and respect, so it needs to be done properly. There are a few scripts of his that have always been very good but you feel that if Bex or Trix or MoDementia or someone was 'looking after' them, a few tweaks and updates would have been made. MediaMonkey has come a long way and I think we are now a bit more demanding. If we use the Visualization thing, embedded in MM, we sort of want it to open in one go.

I'm really hoping Steegy's going to drop by again soon so we can ask him what he thinks. What do you think everyone?

Yeah the script is pretty old, somebody should keep it up to date as new releases come out. I used to love that script, but I'm not that interested in it now, cause I don't see the point of a visualization but in full window mode (and embedding it too big would 'steal' space to what MM is for...tracks). Anyway, like every good work, it deserves to be brought to the next level.

Hello all

I've always thought that a dockable visualisation should be possible in plain MediaMonkey, i.e. without a "script" to try to embed it.
That's the only way this functionality will be available for all and that it's going to work properly.

For this reason I'm not going to try to modify the embedder. I'm pretty sure that most problems aren't bugs in the embedder. Visualisations just aren't meant to be brutally embedded like that.
A dockable visualisation window is probably easy to accomplish for the MM devs.

Cheers
Steegy

Ok. It works like a charm, both milkdrop and its embedder...Now it's possible to autostart milkdrop with mediamonkey so I haven't to start it manually? (I know..I'm lazy :lol:)

i can't script either.

there is a program called auto script it.

that you can use to make simple scripts but i could not figure out how to use it more then to open one program like notepad or have it post an alert.

i think they are on auto script it 4 or 5 now?

but that i think is using vbs

This addon works.

And combined with Monkeyflow, this is hands down the best audio media player out there for its customization, especially for syncing with my Droid.

Bravo.
