What's the panel's "Autostart plugin" setting?

thanks for the help here. I actually wanted it setup separate from my Winamp setup. In Winamp I rarely use the VIS but in Foobar I have it
as one of the components. Since moving to Winamp 5.57 and the latest version of Foobar for some reason Milkdrop stopped working.

I downloaded (I think) an older version of Milkdrop from 2E7AH and I was missing a few things in my folder 

Folder is now located here C:\foobar2000\components\shpeck\plugins and I forgot the Milkdrop folder (key part) and included in the plugin folder
vis_milk2.dll, vms_desktop.dll, msvcr90.dll and nscrt.dll. Now it works just fine and with the Shader error resolved

thanks for all the info to help me resolve this and get it setup the way I wanted it. Now I can listen to Dark Side of the Moon 5 channel with the VIS enable.

I got both AVS and milkdrop working with Shpeck in Foobar, and since it took a bunch of trial&error I thought I'd share a setup that works.  If you download this file:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1725225/winamp.7z
And extract it to your foobar folder (or wherever you want), you can then go to the shpeck config and tell it winamp lives in that folder, then you should be able to use either AVS or Milkdrop.
My problem was that winamp 5.51's milkdrop worked, but not AVS, and a more current version's AVS worked but not milkdrop.  So I got a version of each that works, and dropped the setup into my foobar folder (portable install), which means I don't need winamp installed at all.

Hope somebody else finds this useful.

Hi, I think that I've found a small issue with this plugin. For some reason IPC_GETLISTPOS seems to return 0 for a short period of time after changing songs. This inevitably leads my AlbumArt LiteStep module to flash the cover of the first song in the playlist whenever the song changes, and I'd imagine that it could cause some problems for other applications that utilize IPC_GETLISTPOS as well.

Unlikely, but we'll see.

Sometimes when switching to the tab with the visualization does not work. How to fix?
If you maximize the window that visualization works.
Thanks! Nice plugin!
Use milkdrop 2.1 & AVS, Windows XP & Windows 7.

I'm experiencing a bug that's pretty annoying.  I have the latest version of Shpeck running the latest Milkdrop2 plugin (although this also happens on older versions of Shpeck/Milkdrop2) on a tab by itself.  I sometimes switch between the Shpeck tab and other tabs so that the visualization is not always visible.  However, sometimes (difficult to reproduce exactly) if I switch FROM the Shpeck tab to another tab, foobar freezes and I'm forced to end it using the task manager.  It happens more often when I switch tabs quickly.  I'm running the latest 1.0.1 beta of foobar (bug still present with pre-1.0 versions as well) and Windows 7 x64.  Please let me know if there's any additional feedback I can provide.

Might be caused by the "stop when hidden" feature, or just the fact that the plugin doesn't like messing with it much - mind you, Winamp visualization plugins are generally made to run in one static window only.

Thanks, I'll try disabling "stop when hidden".

I just downloaded this and copied foo_vis_shpeck.dll to my component directory. When I launched foobar2000 after, it gave me an error message. Now when I go into shpeck preference page, I only see AVS and Morphyre but not milkdrop. When I hit refresh I get the same error message again. It says:
Code: [Select]
Runtime error!

Program: C:\Program Files\foobar2000\foobar2000.exe

If it's the same it's that the plugin is linked to the runtime but it can't be found, so you need to edit the plugin yourself or download an edited version.

I downloaded the edited version you uploaded. So should I just replace the original in C:\Program Files\Winamp\Plugins with this one?

Thank you Andreasvb, works like a charm; there's never a shortage of good samaritans here on HA

I've noticed one thing, when I load milkdrop2 using shpeck, the settings are the default ones (I changed the autopreset blend time etc). In winamp it's still my old settings though. So does shpeck have it's own configuration for the plugins?

You're welcome.

I would guess so, as it's a foobar2000 component and doesn't share anything with Winamp, AFAIK.

I think there's a small bug preventing me to change tracks from within milkdrop using the playlist menu ('P' key). I see my foobar playlist perfectly fine but when I try to play a track it just restarts the currently playing track (doesn't switch tracks).

I am using:
Windows XP SP3
Foobar2000 1.0
Shpeck 0.3.7
Winamp 5.572 (i.e. Milkdrop 2.2)

I think that might be related only to the fact that Winamp has been using per-user configuration for some time, i.e. separating common read-only and customizable variable data. This is how the next version of this component will handle it, if a certain individual finds the time to release it.

Try enabling "Playback > Cursor Follows Playback" or the other option or disable or something, IIRC.

That did not fix it. If I am the only one having this problem then I guess something could be wrong with my computer.

I'm sorry, it's rather "Playback Follows Cursor", try that.

Oh my God. Milkdrop inside foobar. Thanks so much Yirkha!

would be nice if this would support the alternate visualization directories of winamp. you can read it from winamp.ini (VISDir). otherwise, and much simpler would be a checkbox to ignore the existance of winamp.exe (yeah, one can use a dummy, but still)
