playing video on the desktop background

Posted 06-01-2011 at 09:29 AM by neonsignal

The '-rootwin' flag can be used with mplayer to play moving images on the desktop background.

Code:
mplayer -rootwin -nosound -loop 0 -vf scale=width video.avi
Some desktop environments will need to have the normal background management disabled.
