as far as I can fathom, players like those you mention draw the waveform for the piece of music and apply various effects and filters to that. It looks like its moving to the music but isn't doing anything more complicated.

use your imagination, grab some inspiration from the demo world (http://www.demoscene.tv/); think particle engines, weird tunnels, motion blur etc..

you can get more complicated with beat detection and such, but that can get rather involving; it depends how far into the rabbit hole you really want to go..

Thanks for the info, I have beat detection and volume detection working well, I now need to learn how to make effects like tunnels, plasmas,warps etc.

The stuff im looking for is like this :http://www.beatthemachine.com/Resources/section_resources_opengl.htm but I need somethings more advanced

You could simply go to Nvidia's or ATI's developer sites. They both host dozens of advanced 'eye candy' effects demos with source code.
