    Alternate close of Visualizations

    Hey guys, I'm just wondering if anyone else has an issue with closing the Vis from winamp with a touch screen?

    I push Vis and it pops up to full screen and that's how I want it, but when I want the vis to minimize or close completely I run into a problem. If I double tap the screen the Vis returns to Windowed mode which is fine but the 'X' at the top corner is to small to push on the TouchScreen.

    Has anyone discovered a way to just touch the screen and have the Vis stop?

    I'm just having to push the x in the top too.. ***** I know; frodoplayer doesnt have that difficulty if your in the mood to try something else

    However I press vis, then have to double-hit the screen to make it change to full-screen mode.. did you have to change anything in Winamp?

    Well it depends on the Vis i guess. Milkdrop for instance has the option to Start in full screen mode.

    I suppose I can use the esc key on the OSK but seems like a pain while driving....

    i use milkdrop, when i click the vis button it goes full screen straight up, then use the touchscreen to double click, milkdop then is windowed, but still looks nice aligned ontop of the brushed metal skin, then i can simply press the vis button again, and the milkdop vis window will disapear..

    After reading this bothered checking mine out, I've used milkdrop the same way (full screen start) then when double clicking it it goes to desktop, which I resised to fit just over the track listing, closing by clicking the vis button again too.

    Just click near the top right hand corner in MediaCar!! It's about an inch square and that closes the vis.
