Ah, just in time for the holidays! Sean Alexander has released an updated Yule Log Visualization for Windows Media Player. Originally released as a part of the Windows Media Bonus Pack for Windows XP
, this visualization is simply a fireplace complete with crackling logs and dancing flames perfect for bringing a bit of holiday spirit to our PCs.
Although the Yule Log was a popular visualization for XP users, it had not been updated for later versions of Windows. But now, thanks to Sean’s (unofficial)
version, you can enjoy this holiday treat once again.
To install, first download the executable (works for both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows),
then go to Now Playing –> Visualization –> Yule Log. Now, just play your music!
If you want to tweak the effects, choose "Options", then select the Yule Log Visualization and click the Properties button. There you'll find a slider for sensitivity which you can adjust.
Thanks, Sean, and happy holidays to all!
