Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Idea for rhythmbox and beryl.

I am 100% convinced that anybody who activates this will be bored of it within 30 seconds. Just like spinny cube, raindrops, and painting fire.

Now let me explain my idea a bit further :
As I know most of music players have some sort of visualization effects included, be it from random spawning lines, circles...well you name it! And none of em have a "wobbly effect" that is achieved only with Beryl (i think), so  yes this would be a plugin that user can simply enable, and no this is not intended to be wobbling while a user would be browsing through his media library. I mean just imagine loading your favorite play list, enjoying your music while the window will be simply shaking that ass.

Regardless, sounds like why this type of thing would be a fun and neat
