PS3 – Change visual player screens when playing audio files

   Posted April 1, 2007 by Jimmy Selix in Games

I know the first thing i did was to put my music on my ps3 so i could have my music in the living room w/o a htpc. if you’ve played around w/the PS3 and Audio player, you know there is a Visual Player option that turns on and off. However, did you know you can change the scene w/the controller?

There are quite a few different types of visuals for the PS3’s audio player. Color and the effects will vary depending on the speed and what part of the equalizer the song hits.

1. Fire up a song in the Audio player
2. Hit the Triangle button to bring up the Menu screen. Click on the “Visual Player” option and then hit Triangle to exit the menu screen.
3. Once the Visual Player starts, push Left or Right on the Right Analog stick to change scenes. Up and Down seem to change the scale and left and right the scene itself, or so it seems. 🙂

I really like the one that feels like your flying through a canon. Not responsible for feelings of vertigo. 😛

    wow thank you so much, the standard visuals suck, hitting square just changes the scene completely, but on the page that the screen morphs you can control the morph using the right analog stick, up and down adjusts the intensity, and left and right morphs the scene differently.

    I’m also looking for a new visual effect but have only found the earth view from space so far. Dont even remember where cuz it was so long ago but i’ve gotten bored with it. Any suggestions would be great!

  • Chipmunk_the_Savage

    Is there a website or a file base where I can go to get new visualizers or perhaps rip some out of Q-games 5 dollar app? Kinda sucks I can get over 1000 free visualizers on my pc but when it comes to my PS3 I gotta pay?? Somebody has to have a rip or an independently created file out there.
