Now playing screen saver or visualization

Post by EvilPeppard » Sun Aug 21, 2011 10:38 am

Hello all,

I have done some searching for a 'now playing screen saver' but almost everything I have found is dated 2006 or earlier. There has to be something newer that will work with Windows 7 and Media Monkey. Is there a plugin or a setting I can change in Media Monkey to display in large letters what is currently playing? I would like the text easily read from across the room.

I would even be okay with disabling the screen saver and using a visualization that displays what is currently playing.

I appreciate your help with this question.

Many visualization plugins can display song title. You can find out by activating one and display its help (Right-click, F1 or H).
Example : MilkDrop (v1.04b) toogles Title display with F2 and F3 keys.

Another interresting script is Now Playing Visualizer : http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=49705

Peace and Love :~)
Skins for MediaMonkey: Cafe, Carbon, Helium, Spotify, Zekton. [ Wiki Zone ].

Thanks for the response. I noticed the Milkdrop one displayed the song info when you first launch it, but then goes away and just shows graphics. I will try using the F2 and F3 keys to see if the song info will remain on the screen the entire time.

I will also check the other thread you linked. Thanks again!

Well, the text is displayed in the visualizations, but the text really isn't any bigger than what is on the 'now playing' bar at the bottom. I am looking for something that shows large text for what is currently playing, so I can see it across the room.

Is there a skin perhaps that has very large 'now playing' text? There has to be something out there.

Thanks again for any help or suggestions. :D
