    Can't get fullscreen visualization

    I can not get the visualization to go fullscreen. Whenever I double-tap (click) on the little visuallization screen, my screen goes black for about 5 seconds and then goes back to the main screen. Is this a driver problem? I have a DSCustoms 7" touchscreen. However, I am using the generic Windows XP monitor driver. My video drivers are up to date though. Please someone help.

    It's going out of range or failing. Just try different full screen resolutions. There are usually many to choose from, like in WinAmp using the Milkdrop vis, there's RGB-565 800x600 60Hz which won't work but XRGB-8888 800x600 60Hz will.

    No, full screen in Windows Media Player 9 doesn't work either. How do I change the resolutions of the visualizations? I didn't see that option in Frodoplayer.

    Well, never mind. I can't get it to work in WMP. In the tools menu, plug-ins, options, you can set the properties on some visiualizations, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Nothing that I've found works.

    All frodoplayer does is play whatever vis is setup in WMP... You just need to load WMP and go to tools/plugins and you will see a list of all the plugins.. The ones that allow you to click on Properties for the plugin will allow you to change the resolution.. A couple don't allow you to change the properties, so they will not work in full screen... Ambience is one that won't work... But many of the other ones work fine.. Just click properties and set it to 800x600... Also you can install other vis plugins into WMP, setup them up, and Frodoplayer will use that... I use GOOM...

    I thought I was the only one who coudlnt get fullscreen visualizations. Fullscreen movies work just fine, but when playing music all I get is a little visualization window with no way to go fullscreen (grayed out button/menu item).

    This is on WinXP pro SP1 @ 800x600 Composite out, 256MB, Epia 800. Not sure what i'm overlooking here, but if anyone knows a solution i'd love to hear it.

    You may can set the video driver to lock the refresh rate to the same as desktop.
    (Don't ask me how, this varies by video card)

    Also you can check to make sure hardware acceleration is turned on.

    BTW in 1.09 there will be an alternate full screen mode, so if you can see the little vis then you will definately be able to use the alternated method.

    I have the same fullscreen issue. It used to work and then just stopped. Any guestimate of when the 1.09 version of frodoplayer will be released?
