Music playback is done while in the main XBMC GUI or the full screen Visualization. XBMC will default to staying in the main GUI.
1 On screen display (OSD)
Music control can be done while in the main XBMC GUI or the fullscreen/visualization screen.
While in the fullscreen/visualization screen you can bring up the on-screen-display controls by pressing ↵ Enter or M.
2 Mini player controls
While in the GUI you are able to browse all of XBMC and even look at pictures while playing music or videos. During GUI playback you can call up the Mini player controls at any time. In the default skin Confluence, you can do this two ways:
While the sidebar tab is present and while media is playing, bringing up the sidebar/blade menu by navigating to the left will reveal a small selection of player controls.
A pop-up window with mini player controls can be brought up in Confluence while media is playing. For a keyboard press M while music is playing in the background.
One of the most impressive features of My Music is its integrated support for visualizations, which are a way to make your music come to life on screen. XBMC offers support for many visualizations and some of the following may be present in your installation:
- Saville Blue
- Spectrum Analyzer
- Boxalizer 1 and 2
- Milkdrop - Arguably the best of all, with its mind-bending effects and the ability to fully customize it through the User Interface
