I am wondering if (and how) it is possible to add your own Visualizations for when music is playing.

I remember a few years ago I used to use one called Corona in WMP it is the best Visualization I have ever found and would love to try and get it working in XBMC if that is at all possible.

Corona site: http://www.btinternet.com/~richard.asbury/corona/

Any help would be appreciated. Big Grin

Xbox = DirectX, Linux port = OpenGL
so unlikely but patches are welcome

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
