As it says...how can I switch OFF the (awful) bouncing visualisation when listening to audio ???

I found a link in settings to visualisation....but when I select it....it seems to just take me to the audio player page, and show me the visualisation (bouncing bars) I am trying to get rid of!!

Thanks....but WOW...that took some finding for me!!
OK....I can open the file as a text file...and can delete the text you describe....
then find I can't save it...and get into an endless loop...being asked to save.
But it doesn't save....I'm doing something wrong no doubt!!

    Since the file resides in a protected Windows folder you need administrator privileges. So open your editor from its context menu and select Administrator before opening the file. You’ll now be able to save it.

    Alternatively save your file in another location, eg desktop. Then move it to the respective folder using Explorer. You’ll be prompted for admin confirmation, so that’s just a mouse click.

    What skin/theme are you using?
    Thanks for getting back....I've been away for a while!
    It's Titanium extended...the Blue theme.

    TBH....I'll be doing the same removal with ANY skin I use in future...as I can't stand the visualiser!
    Am I in a minority here...perhaps the only one not to like the bouncing bars???!!

    Keep in mind that future releases will override your changes. Set the file ReadOnly in the file properties (not sure if our installer digests the fact hat it cant write a file).

    Definitely.

    No, the second that we hear from - honestly!

    Wow...that's really surprising.
    Would seem an ideal candidate to toggle ON/OFF to me!!

    OK...have now edited file, and saved it back to original location...still bouncing silliness remains!! (For me, and one other!! :) )
    I have converted file to text, and attached below.
    I deleted all text between the brackets <......>...the brackets remain.

    Please could you check that I've done this correctly???
    Thanks!!
