You can check out the latest source from my repository and put it in your plugins directory like this:
$ svn co https://svn.overtag.dk/zuzu/trunk FullscreenView $ mkdir -p ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins $ mv FullscreenView ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins
In newer versions of Rhythmbox, the plugin directory has been moved to .gconf/apps/rhythmbox/plugins/.
Better scaling for different screen sizes
Better synchronization of elapsed playing times
The plugin uses custom drawn Cairo widgets in a DrawableArea and idle callbacks for animations. Everything is therefore vector graphics. The code is currently rather messy and I expect to do a check up on that in the near future.
if you find an error, please run Rhythmbox from terminal with the following option:
$ rhythmbox -D FullscreenView
