You can make your own - http://www.mandelbulber.com/

Here's a piece of one -

Edit: there are some very cool fractal "fly-throughs" on youtube, e.g.

Thank you. I wanted visualizations on my player when listening to music but this is far better than any of those I have seen. I can just bring one of these up full screen and we are in party mode :D

Of course I will have to copy the video so that I have the individual video that can then be put in a loop.

The cube is fantastic! Looks much better full screen and in motion.

This is great.

I thought it was rather tricky - and slow - to make one good image, so those movies are pretty impressive.

The "Cube métallique"? I have a similar design for my ubuntu background; cropped 'n' shrunk portion:

IIRC, that's ^^ from a fish-eye lens option, the surfaces aren't curved. (I haven't played with mandelbubler for a few years).

I have downloaded the cube from Youtube but it comes with the owners logo in the lower right corner. Still, looks great. You fly through the inside of the cube which is very intricate.

Grab the bar or click to see the logo. The video is called Exploration d'un cube multicolore (Mandelbox).

EDIT: The logo is easily removed with a click in the settings. Now Youtube video downloads are excellent but does take a little finesse.

I downloaded the video from a different source and I get it with no logo. I used this video converter (see link) but the last part is messed up with advertisements so I will crop it. EDIT: Cropped it using Nimbus which took some finesse and it loops nicely. I am pretty sure this is a little better quality video than the one from Youtube too.

The logo I mentioned earlier is easily removed in settings. I just captured a great youtube video of Construction d'un palais virtuel (Mandelbulber)
