    [POLL] AVS in neocar media center

    I have a problem with current version of NMC: Winamp's AVS.

    I've detected that when i do not load Winamp's AVS in NMC, all is LOT more stable. The reason is that i'm not lauching Winamp to make AVS work, but i only send the sound infos to AVS via winamp.dll (a custom user made DLL that is NOT my creation).
    This link between winamp.dll and AVS is ****. And i can't find any other option to work with AVS without Winamp installed.

    And i'm sure: Winamp will NEVER required for NMC to work.

    So.. i've tried to find another good visualisation system to embed in NMC, but i have'nt found anything. I cannot use other Winamp Vis in order that this will be "****" as the actual solution (can't get ride of winamp.dll's use).

    I'm asking me: does i need to keep AVS option or can i get ride of this, and make another basic visualization (like oscilloscope or spectrum).

    I need your opinion. For me AVS is not critical but for you ?

    For me Oscillscope or spectrum will do. I'm 41 of age and AVS is cool (my daughter and wife like it also), but if it compromises stability I prefer stability. My original thought was using it for GPS and MP3 because a PDA sucks. I'm a lot on the road for repairing pc's, so this was the main target. While driving, your eyes aren't that much focussed on the screen ...

    If it comes to stability. My opinion is to get rid of the VIS. No need for it on the road anyway.

    Same here (apart from the 41 )!

    Visualisation is only needed when showing off the car, which could be done by an external application.

    Stability is a must for me! I want to ditch any standard windows applications (windows explorer, any config software etc...) so I cannot have fatal errors exiting NMC

    Maybe an option to disable the AVS ?

    But will it be stable then?

    If so, leave it the way it is and bring out 2 skins

    Before I vote, I'd like to say THIS VERSION ROCKS DUDE! Frankly I've been following your NMC for quite some time now (since carmedia) and I was disappointed. But I am really liking this release. So much better than past releases.

    As for the poll, I'd say get rid of the viz on the audio skin. I find it ugly. Maybe something small and unintrusive like this perhaps:
    But please have a button for fullscreen viz.

    BTW how do I make the album art to appear?
