VLC projectM presets . 2 posts / 0 new . 2) Download the latest preset_samples of ProjectM, e.g. presets-2.0.0-Source.tar.gz and extract all the .milk files to the visualizations folder created above. 3) In VLC open Preferences from the menu, go to the audio tab and under Output select "Directx audio output" as your Output module. It is available with Winamp 5.5 or from projectM in their 2.0.1 version for use it with other players like the VLC media player. MilkDrop 2 added DirectX 9.0 support and added the ability to use pixel shaders in its presets. MilkDrop is the visualizer for Milkdrop that projectM is built for compatibility with. It was made with DirectX and the shader language that it supported in presets is HLSL, the language used by DirectX. Since projectM is designed to be run on other systems besides Windows, some form of support for HLSL was needed.
