What happened to visualizations?


#1

Back when I installed my first version of OSMC on my Raspberry Pi a few years back, there were a couple of different music visualizations available. With the fully updated latest version on Raspberry Pi 3, there seems to be none. Am I doing something wrong, or have all visualizations somehow fallen on the wayside and stopped being supported?

See this thread from the Kodi forum. https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=306658&pid=2523345#pid2523345

Thanks, I’ve already added Popcornmix and got the one visualization (Shadertoy) that is available that way. However, my question still stands: what happened to the visualizations, why do I need to manually add stuff instead of something being included with OSMC, as it earlier was?

I dunno. Maybe ask at the Kodi forums. It’s not really an OSMC issue.


#5

You are mistaken. There were never other visualizations installed by default. There are actually very few visualizations that are compatible with the pi anyway.


#6

All right then, I trust you know and I must have been mistaken. I’ve probably at some point installed them from external repositories. Sorry for the confusion.

I too wondered what happened to the “default” Waveform and spinning square/rainbow coloured equaliser bar visualisations. But not for too long, since the Shadertoy ones are better.
