if you run AVS, and then go to the display settings -> overlay mode, click the default colour (or whatever) and then "set desktop to colour, it runs AVS visualisations on your desktop. works in winamp3, not sure about earlier versions.

WINAMP is really the best Media Player ever seen !!!

if you run AVS, and then go to the display settings -> overlay mode, click the default colour (or whatever) and then "set desktop to colour, it runs AVS visualisations on your desktop.

AVS = advanced visualisation studio, a little visualisation thing that comes with winamp. to activate in winamp 2, go to preferences (ctrl+p), then PLug-ins/Visualization and choose "Advanced Visualization Studio" and then "Start" (if you double click the little spectrum analyser on the main winamp window it'll start whatever one of these is highlighted here, too, for future reference). in AVS you can choose presets (like different visualisations) and by playing about with the options you can make them change every so many seconds or whatever you want. then just change the options i mentioned before, and it'll mirror the window to your desktop. fantastic.

Wow. 6 year old Zombie thread. Is that a record?

Check the AVS presets forum. 5 seconds of searching got 53 hits on "spectrum".

I didn't know you could :O. Also, works for me , although it pauses when I right click on a icon, but meh. And I wouldn't mind if it paused/didn't chew up CPU when no part of the desktop is visable, but since I doesn't use too much CPU anyway, meh. Anyway, theres always: Taskbar right click > toolbars > desktop

That's because Vista is evil and should be killed
