    Sorry for the late reply - looks like I missed this.

    First libvisual jack support is broken and probably will never be fixed -
    seems that the project is no longer being developed. So the best way is to set
    your audio player to sox, and then you need to set up your audio mixer
    (alsamixer) so that it captures from pcm.
