I was referring specifically to the vis_milk2.dll file. I'm not bothered what other presets, etc people want to bundle with it (as seems to be the main part of your package - i assume you've gotten permission from the preset authors to re-distribute their presets as needed), just an official solution so that if people are going to re-use Milkdrop in other players that at least it's not going to need people breaking out resource editors to add a manifest, etc. That still leaves you to do whatever you do with your package, but not necessarily having to re-distribute the vis_milk2.dll (which i'm not sure on the position held with doing that as part of an unsanctioned package).

Or maybe i just won't bother and will leave it like as-is so whenever it is altered whoever has to keep hacking the dll's resources... was just trying to simplify things *shrugs*

Just to make it clear, this package was not made by me. I just downloaded it. It was linked here in a previous post, I just added that same link to my howto

Hi everyone,I know that this may have already been asked but i can't find the solution of my problem, also searching through the forum...
I use Shpeck and MilkDrop2 works fine, no problem at all.
Yesterday i tried to use also the Nullsoft Tiny Fullscreen for the first time, searching in the forum i found it here, in the second post:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....9&hl=shpeck
Downloaded, copied it in the winamp\plugins folder, but if i try to load it all i got is this error:

I've made a step-by-step tutorial for newcomers, including the fix for shader errors mentioned above:

MilkDrop in foobar2000 on Windows 8


Hallo.
So I did step by step how its describe on this blog. To extract MilkDrop instalation file downloded from Winamp page I use Universal Extractor.
In it, I pointed direction for extractet file to C:\Users\x\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000. And its extract but didnt create Winamp folder. The folder name is "ß". Even if I rename this folder to Winamp, Foo_vis_shpeck still dont see winamp directory. So I go further. I create empty text
file named winamp.exe. Still nothing. I create folder Plugins and in it winamp.exe and extractet MilkDrop. Nothing. In each setep I type specific
dirtection for winamp directory. NOTHING! Please help me because Im trying turn on this for over 5 years, yes 5 years. Before I have Vaio laptop with Vista Busines. Now its Dell with Windows 8. Every time when I try to turn it on, it so frustraiting that I leave for next few months, and again, and again...

...MilkDrop instalation file downloded from Winamp page...
What page are you referring to? In the link you quoted I see no mention of pages from Winamp site...

http://www.winamp.com/visualizations/

Yesterday I try to download MilkDrop package from link that viktor posted, but there was no page, so I downloaded from www.winamp.com.
Today I try again and its working!!!
THX viktor and Alessandro.

Yes it is my fault. Sorry.
Where I can find more visualization?

so the link in the OP to the fix for 1.04 leads right back to the OP for me. is there something wrong? how do i get v1.04 working? it pretty much just crashes foobar for me at this point

i sort of cheated on installing it when installing milkdrop by making a winamp install directory and renaming a blank txt file to winamp.exe. does that matter? it says winamp isn't required for this to work

When playing Opus files it doesn't seem to send the info to e.g. Trillian, via its fake Winamp v1.x class.
As soon as I play an MP3 it works.

It does display correct when looking with WinLister, regardless codec being used.

Any idea what it could be?

Reading this post here: http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....howtopic=101247 came to my mind that i found a way to solve the DirectX problem on windows 8 without installing all the package, at least in my case.
I had the classic "Directx 9 or later is required" issue in running milkdrop on w8, so i tested which dlls of the package were necessary to make it work.
I ended up that just putting the 2 dlls in the zip attached (see end of message) in the main foobar2000 folder is enough to have Milkdrop working.
Of course that's just my case, i'm not an expert or so, maybe it won't help anyone but... just sharing my experience about it.

Thank you foomark.  I've downloaded the zip and will try this.  Is the guide that Viktor authored available anywhere?  Any help I can find, I will use.

thanks again.

vis_milk2.dll v2, 25, 3, 0 (show as v2.25c) from just released Winamp 5.65 can be fixed by adding Manifest (they use now newer msvcr90.dll version v9.00.30729.6161, so Manifest version should be changed accordingly) and visualizer works normally, but its options can't be configured inside foobar - foobar crashes immediately on Configure... Can it be fixed somehow?
P.S. Of course, I try Manifest with old v9.0.21022.8 first - the same effect.

What do you mean by adding Manifest? What is Manifest? I'm trying to run the latest MilkDrop (2.25c) in the latest shpeck (0.3.7) in the latest foobar (1.2.9) in the latest Windows (8.1) and I'm getting a runtime error. Is there a simple fix?



also just a small comment.. the MilkDrop source code is available on the website, is there anyone here that has the skills to turn it into a native foobar plugin?

the manifest is something that needs to be added into the resources of the Milkdrop plug-in dll so it can tell the OS what supporting dlls it may need to access (in this case it's relating to the msvcr90.dll).

i had said in a post earlier in the page i was going to add the manifest natively, however after further testing, it caused problems when running Milkdrop under Winamp in a number of scenarios and so was dropped (otherwise it would have allowed for direct sharing of things between the players - which i'm not too keen on but was getting tired of seeing hacked up versions of the Milkdrop plug-in dll floating around).

as for it crashing, it's most likely due to the Winamp specific code which is in the plug-in to do things (as that's all we've coded against what with that being the native solution). as the source code is available, there's nothing stopping someone working out the issue and patching the plug-in as needed (but it then just leads to further fragmentation of the plug-in).

Running Milkdrop under Winamp is almost never needed for people who use foobar.
Just for reference: last Winamp version which dll works with Manifest hack is 5.63.

I don't have them, but I feel like I need to look into this. Is it even possible? I think a native foobar component would be great.

Guys, sorry, I migrated from Blogger to Tumblr so the link was changed. Here's the new, correct one:

MilkDrop in foobar2000 on Windows 8

Anyway, just to confirm that it still works, I'm still using that tutorial and the same MilkDrop package on my new Windows 8.1 install with foobar2000 1.3 beta 6 with the latest AMD drivers without any troubles. MilkDrop used to crash foobar2000 in late summer when 8.1 was new and (I guess) the AMD drivers were even worse, but with current AMD drivers it never crashes on me.

P.S.: I've also managed to update MilkDrop to the last (literally) version, i.e. Winamp 5.666/MilkDrop 2.25c. I've updated the MilkDrop link in the article to the new version.

P.P.S.: I hate edit timeouts.

I recently installed Foobar but I can't seem to get milkdrop to show up in my available plugins.

1. In my preferences, under visualizations, I have Shpeck installed.
2. Created Winamp folder and dummy text file in Foobar folder.
3. Copied plugins from Winamp folder to Foobar-Winamp folder. Currently, 5 folders (avs, DSP_SPS, freeform, Gracenote, and Milkdrop2) and various DLL files were moved.
4. Refresh the list but only Advance Visualization Studio v2.82 shows.

I'm running Windows 7. Can anybody point out what's missing?

Thanks in advance!

Do you have winamp.exe (or a zero byte file named winamp.exe) in your installation folder?  Also my Winamp stuff in in a folder named "Plugins", not "Winamp" (if I read you correctly.)

I have a zero byte file named winamp.exe. My folder structure is Programs (x86) -> Foobar -> Winamp -> Plugins. Is there suppose to be a difference between the actual exe file and the zero byte one?

Thanks

Hmm, tho I probably should have put things down another level in folder named Winamp, I misread the original instructions.  Now I see that I could have used a Winamp folder and set the proper location in the Shpeck foobar2000 options.  Anyway, do you have the zero length in the Winamp folder?  If so I'm out of suggestions.

Sorry, I meant "zero length file".  You need a winamp.exe file in the winamp folder.  Any file will do, it doesn't need to be the real winamp.  Since I had my winamp stuff in my main foobar2000 installation folder I have my zero byte winamp.exe file there.  Anyway I'm probably confusing things more than I'm helping so I'll go away
