You must have seen so many visualizations for Windows Media Player, but this one is awesome. I mean this is the most simple and yet captivating visualization. Here is the screenshot for the visualization.

enrgy bliss visualisation

The dancing bars and the moving clouds look very charming.You can turn the album art feature either on or off by clicking in the Video and Visualization pane of the Now Playing feature. If you turn the album art off, you can still access it by moving the pointer over the upper-left area of the Video and Visualization pane.
Note that not all album art can be displayed in the Energy Bliss visualization. For example, album art that you have manually added to a file by using the Advanced Tag Editor will not appear.

This particular visualization requires a powerful graphics adapter (video card). If you keep getting a black screen or a dark sky when you are in full mode or full-screen mode, check to be sure your computer system meets the following minimum system requirements:

  • Windows Media Player 10

  • Graphics adapter: 3D accelerator with at least 16 megabytes (MB) of memory

  • Processor: 500-600 megahertz (MHz) or higher
