    Description
    Milkdrop Plugin will NOT full screen while playing an internet radio station via .pls or .m3u files in the regular "Music" player. The result is the same with every skin I try. Playlists pertaining to mp3 files do not have this problem.
    Milkdrop only works in the small window(Reacts to the beat of the music and everything) but will not full screen.
    Here is the contents of one of the .pls files that points to an internet radio station:
    Code (Text):
    1. [playlist]
    2. NumberOfEntries=1
    3. File1=http://lemon.citrus3.com:8062/
    4. Title1=FILTH.FM
    5. Length1=-1
    6. Version=2
    Steps to Reproduce:
    copy this to notepad and save with file extension ".pls" or ".m3u":
    Code (Text):
    1. [playlist]
    2. NumberOfEntries=1
    3. File1=http://lemon.citrus3.com:8062/
    4. Title1=FILTH.FM
    5. Length1=-1
    6. Version=2
    With Milkdrop installed properly via wiki instructions...
    Open with the regular "Music" player in MP.

    Confirmed.

    I am able to get Milkdrop in fullscreen when I play music through Last.fm. However, Last.fm uses a "waiting" animation between each song and after each animation the screen stays black.

    'ello

    I've played around with the source a little and can get it to work by only changing the following:


    if (!HasVideo && !IsMusic)
    {
    return false;
    }
    to

    if (!HasVideo && !IsMusic && !IsRadio)
    {
    return false;
    }
    in ShowFullScreenWindowVideoDefault() in g_player.cs

    Maybe there are some other issues that I'm not aware of - I only listen to radio streams, so maybe there are other issues when listening using a DVB or FM card.

    Maybe Scythe42 can comment on this?
