Spotiamp (spotify) with Milkdrop preconfigured.

Spotiamp is for spotify premium subscribers only.

So maybe you tried milkdrop for winamp in the past and loved it but want to enjoy the milkdrop visualization with your spotify music.  Recently spotiamp has been released (more info at spotiamp.com) which is a winamp style spotify player.  Configuring milkdrop to work on spotify is slightly more complicated than it should be. To simplify things we have preconfigured it for you in a zipped up folder.  Follow these instructions to get it working.

Be advised spotiamp is still a little buggy,  click on eject button to select playlists.
