iTunes Visualizer gives you a full-color creative light show with the click of a button. You can also install your own visual effects plug-ins to use with iTunes. Note: Plug-ins are for either the Mac OS X or Windows version of iTunes. Be sure to use the Windows plug-ins for the Windows version of iTunes.

To install a plug-in in Windows Vista:
  1. Open /Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer.
  2. Open the iTunes folder.
  3. Drag the plug-in to the iTunes Plug-ins folder. Note: You may need to create an iTunes Plug-ins folder here if no previous system-wide plug-ins have been installed. To create a new folder, on the File menu, click New Folder. Rename the folder "iTunes Plug-ins" without the quotes.


To install a plug-in in Windows XP and 2000:

  1. Open the My Documents folder (Click Start, and point to My Documents).
  2. Open the My Music folder.
  3. Open the iTunes folder.
  4. Drag the plug-in to the iTunes Plug-ins folder. Note: You may need to create an iTunes Plug-ins folder here if no previous system-wide plug-ins have been installed. To create a new folder, on the File menu, click New Folder. Rename the folder "iTunes Plug-ins" without the quotes.
