Mac Laptop iTunes Keyboard Backlight Visualizer
Backlight Visualizer for iTunes on MacOS X
After seeing info on hacking the keyboard backlight of newer Apple portables and someone posting a CPU meter using the backlight, I decided that it would be time to put this into an iTunes plugin.
new and improved: now it can optionally blink the screen's backlight! Use at your own risk.
Get it, use it
First, the mandatory download link. Unzip it and copy the bundle to (your home folder)/Libary/iTunes/iTunes Plug-Ins. To use it, launch iTunes, select "BacklightPlugin" from the Visualizer menu and turn on the visualizer by either clicking its icon in the bottom border, selecting "Turn Visualizer On" in the menu or pressing Command-T.
To enable screen flickering, press the i key while the visualizer runs. Caution! Most probably, this is not what the display backlight was built for. I take no responsability for any damage done to your comuter's screen.
This program comes with no warranty. It may crash iTunes, kill your cat or paint your PowerBook beige.
this is so cool i wana do it
