Default ProjectM (Milkdrop) for Android

So I was searching though Motorola's source code the other day for the Droid X, and I stumbled upon a visualization folder. Looked inside, and to my surprise I see folders labeled as "projectm" Which is the open source port of the beautiful Milkdrop plugin for Winamp on Windows (to my knowledge).

So I dug around a bit, but not being a developer I couldn't figure much out.

Today though I was creating a shortcut to an activity in LP. And I saw "Visualization" category In there there is an activity to start the visualization!

I also finally found where the visualization was originally implemented. I reinstalled Motorola's stock music app, and saw the visualizations there.

So anyways, now that I see the source code is already there, and I am trying to learn android development, I am going to try to get it running as a live wallpaper, and also try to improve on it a bit, as it renders pretty low res, and doesn't seem very optimized.

I am not sure if this is a full port, or just enough to run the few presets Moto included.

But at current I figured I would share with you all how to get the Moto version of this app running Hopefully I can get my standalone version/live wallpaper working soon!

Also, not sure if I can post Moto's apk for those that dont have it. someone let me know.



Screenshot of it running standalone. It reacts to any Media audio.

Wondering how Development was going? I talked to a Dev named kholk who said he would help me and work on this as well.
The Dev seemed really nice and willing to help said he wanted to do it for free.

It's interesting! And it looks funny

Anyway, if we don't have a Motorola phone we can't use them legally speaking...

...but if you upload them and post them here saying that if you haven't got a moto phone you shouldn't download it... well... not your problems

P.S.: I'm looking into it, but this week I'm not at home. If someone anticipates me, well.. good. Otherwise you have to wait for some days :/

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. It seems the project died before it started for me. I simply dont have the time now. (I just got a bunch more web work to do. Yay!)

The source is of course open via motorola, just download the Droid X motorola source code and its in there.

Good luck to whoever tries to do it! And please keep me posted
