Bento: Editing the Album Art Window

So, I've been making tweaks to the Bento skin. I managed to turn the Album Art Window into a video window by replacing the following line in player-normal-mcv.xml:

code:
<group fitparent="-2" id="info.component.cover2" />


with

code:
<group fitparent="-2" id="wdh.video.resizable" />


Now, I'm trying to see if I can turn that window into the visualizer instead. However, when I replace the line with

code:
<group fitparent="-2" id="wdh.vis" />


Winamp freezes on startup.

Any ideas how this might be accomplished?

Since it appears that the maki scripts limit current instances of the visualizer to certain component frames, is it possible to write a new script that would allow the album art window to be populated with the currently selected visualization?

Edit: Just found the Skin Development Pack. Looking into it.

Managed to get it working! Required commenting out a few sections in load_handles.m and recompiling suicore.maki. Uploaded the skin to

http://chinagreenelvis.com/projects/winamp/

Included player-normal-mcv.xml_vid and player-normal-mcv.xml_vis which can be swapped out. The default is Vis.

It's great if it's working for you, for me is not showing anything (tabs are hidden and there is a big blank space above the Playlist which doesn't show video or vis regardless which XML I use).

Yeah, forgot to mention that Bentover also removes the tabs and some top buttons.

In order for the visualization to work, you have to set it to start up on playback in the Plugins menu.

Not sure why video wouldn't be working, unless you're testing with a filetype that isn't properly set up in Winamp.

I'd like to find a way to auto-switch between visualizations and video depending on the file being played, but I'm sure it would require being able to script the visualization to stop.

Does anyone know if there is a maki command or script function to start/stop the visualization plugin? (Specifically stop.)
