Improved iTunes 10 Classic Visualizer Apps
The iTunes Classic Visualizer is great. For starters, it keeps you interested, and it seems uncannily good at matching the mood of the visuals to the style of music. The new Visualizer style just doesn't make sense to me -- pulsating orbs?

Anyway, the problem with the Classic Visualizer is that it would always force a low resolution on you when using full screen mode.

I'm happy to point out that the Classic Visualizer in iTunes 10 now uses your current display resolution when you go into full screen mode. Now it looks absolutely awesome on a nice 720p/1080p TV set. Unfortunately it still blanks secondary displays in full screen mode.

I know I'm not the only one to have searched for an answer to this, only to be disappointed with the 'Use screen zoom' solution that's been around for years.

[crarko adds: I tested this, and it works as described, although I didn't try the external output. Thanks to Tom Karpik for this hint.]

The new Visualizer has quite a few different "modes" other than pulsating orbs. Pressing the "M" key during play cycles you through the sequence of available modes. Other controls for the visualizer can be inspected by pressing the question mark key "?"

If you like having a variety of iTunes visualizers you might want to check out Manifesto. I developed it to be as reactive as possible to your music. It is Mac only, OpenGL based, and free!
