Plex Media Player - Audio Visualizer

plex-media-player

#1

Hi Folks,

I've just replaced my front end player with a 4k enabled GPU, at long last (yay for me!).

HOWEVER! It seems that the new PMP is a bit limited to customization.
In this I mean, no option for addons.
In particular MilkDrop2 which I had on my PHT.

This is a game killer for me as I used to hypnotise my guests/kids/pets for hours!

Now I have to actually find good content to play them....

Any future plans to implement a decent audio visualizer (on par with itunes/winamp)?

It's not a feature that is requested that often, but I'll add it to the list.


#3

I love that feature, too!


#4

Echoing the thunderous support for this feature, specially in the Browser or Xbox 360 players!


#5

Any update on this?
This would add so much value when playback music and have something interesting on the screen rather than just a static image.
With projectM there already exist a Milkdrop compatible OpenGL powered implementation for Linux/Windows/Mac.

Ditto!

Something like this would mesmerize most guests at my house: Vizualizer


#7

Visualizer! Yes! How hard can it be?


#8

I would also love this!!! I have also seen the projectM opensource api: https://github.com/projectM-visualizer/projectm


#9

Everyone we know that uses Plex want this feature


#10

Adding a "me-too!" as well. I miss projectM from XBMC/Kodi.. would love to see it back in PMP :smile:


#11

This is a feature I would also like to see in the app. It's not much but I stream music from my server often and I miss being able to turn on a visualizer.


#12

How about we focus on getting the thing working correctly and added the features it needs to function before we suggest a useless feature.


#13

Regarding project M, this looks pretty much like a blocker: https://github.com/projectM-visualizer/projectm/issues/11
(We'd have to force desktop GL on Windows, which would cause tons of problems.)
Not very promising from an integration point of view.

(Note that I don't know if we have any plans at Plex to support fancy visualization - I'm just looking at this from a technical point of view.)


#14

I've been hoping someone would come up with something for this the whole time i've been using plex.


#15

Please add this....Really something missing in Plex...


#16

I'm planning to move my music over to Plex too (from Media Monkey). ** Would love this feature.** Is necessary to make a big code change or is it something you can just run in parallel (i.e. just kick off the process?) These are the options media monkey has http://www.mediamonkey.com/addons/browse/appearance/visualizations/ I would be fine buying one of these if Plex could kick off and kill the process as needed. If I remember right G-force/SoundSpectrum just need some parameters passed to it at the command line like artist, song name etc.


#17

This would really be a fantastic 'cherry on top' feature!


#18

I can understand people love seeing a visualizer while playing music, but don't you agree most of them look tacky as hell?


#19

I want to give my +1 for this feature as well. as long as it has a decent visualizer... most visualizers available through media player plugins (such as ProjectM are outdated and ugly)


#20

+1 audio visualizers please
