Shpeck is a component which can load and run Winamp visualisation plugins under foobar2000. Plugins capable of running in an "embedded window" can be put into a Columns UI panel too.

ZIPed distribution contains a README file with short installation guide and changelog.
Please read the rest of this topic before asking, or at least use the fast search function - see the bottom left corner of the page. And use the [​codebox] instead of [code​] for crash dumps to keep them short. Thanks!

Current version is Shpeck 0.3.7 from 2009/09/24.
foo_vis_shpeck.dll (237 KB)
foo_vis_shpeck-0.3.7.zip (121 KB)
mirror

FAQ:
  • Some plugins like MilkDrop 2 or NSFS are not detected.
    Copy the NSCRT.DLL file from Winamp's root directory somewhere, where the Windows DLL loader can find it (e.g. your directory with foobar2000.exe) - not needed since v0.3.0, they can be left in the Plugins directory too.
  • MilkDrop 1 or AVS randomly crashes.
    They are not compatible with DEP, there is no fix available AFAIK. Edit: Fix for MilkDrop 1.04 here.

Original first post:

Hi guys,

I came across a backup of my old foobar 0.8.whatever installation with foo_vis_bacon and Milkdrop yesterday and I thought it would be nice to see some of the carefuly crafted presets again. So I grabbed some other unused stuff from under my desk and hacked together the following thing over night.

While praising the Nullsoft's eternal wisdom about ingenious plug-in design, I gradually realized it actually works somehow (i.e. with more than one particular plug-in and on more than one machine) and it's quite usable too (i.e. not just with a hardcoded path to one plug-in DLL and half-supported API). So I decided to release it for public use.

I'm sure nobody cares about "WHEEE TEH COLORIZZZED PIXELZ!!!11 AND MOOVINK TO MY MUZAXX!! LULZZ!!" any more, but here is the link anyway:
(removed)

Enjoy!

to clarify the Milkdrop versioning *fun* seen recently, Winamp 5.60x ships with v2.23 whereas Winamp 5.61 was meant to ship with v2.2 but in fact is shipping with v2.21 which was accidental (and not as per the versions stated in the above post or the Winamp changelog).

also the main reason for the reversion is due to some localisation related issues when run in Winamp and with a language pack matching the user's locale which leads to some cases of unresponsiveness in the presets or other compatibility issues. in the context of being used in Foobar that shouldn't be something which happens (unless this component it completely replicating all of the api_language service Milkdrop uses for localisation).

and whilst i remember, thank you to those people who pointed out some issues with Milkdrop running under this component with titles and a few other things - wouldn't have known to fix it over the v2.2x builds if people hadn't mentioned it here wink.gif
