Enable song information on changing visualizers

I didn't like the fact that mythmusic shows only the type of visualizer at song beginning, when the "change the visualizer on each song" option is enabled. I added another option to let mythmusic show either the type of visualizer or the song information if this option is used. Default is to show the song information.

I'd rather not add yet another setting. Instead we should just stop showing the visualiser name on automatic changes. I can only see a point in displaying it when you are manually cycling through the visualisers.

What about showing the song information _and_ the type of visualizer?

Would anyone fight for the name of the visualizer being shown on automatic changes? I really can't see the value.

This one?

void PlaybackBoxMusic::CycleVisualizer()
    // Only change the visualizer if there is more than 1 visualizer
    // and the user currently has a visualizer active
    if (visual_modes.count() > 1 && visualizer_status > 0)
        if (random_visualizer)
            unsigned int next_visualizer;

            //Find a visual thats not like the previous visual
                next_visualizer = rand() % visual_modes.count();
            while (next_visualizer == current_visual);
            current_visual = next_visualizer;
            //Change to the next selected visual
            current_visual = (current_visual + 1) % visual_modes.count();

        //Change to the new visualizer
    else if (visual_modes.count() == 1 && visual_modes[current_visual] == "AlbumArt" &&
             visualizer_status > 0)
        // If only the AlbumArt visualization is selected, then go ahead and
        // restart the visualization.  This will give AlbumArt the opportunity
        // to change images if there are multiple images available.
    if (show_cycle_visualizer)
        bannerEnable(tr("Visualization: ") + visual_modes[current_visual], 4000);
        bannerEnable(curMeta, show_album_art);
