Is possible to play a video as screen-saver on Kde?
 
Hello:


I use opensuse 12.3 with kde.
I'd like to know if is possible to play a video (loop) as screen-saver.


Thanks

Yes, you can use while loop with
Quote:

idleTime=$(xprintidle)
that detects idle time, runs mplayer with video with repeat option and kills it when mouse is moved (idle time too low), i have similar script.

Hello,
Please, can you give me a detail of the script?
You say that the script runs mplayer..
How and what parameters do you send to play the file?

Thanks

just run

Quote:

mplayer -fs -loop 0 '/home/username/pathToVideo/video.mov'
to loop and run in fullscreen.
