Hi!

It's been a while since I did something like that but it went something like this old post:
http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/hoanga/2008/02/06/how-to-play-mplayer-in-the-desktop-fullscreen-on-ubuntu/

However things could have changed since.


Good luck!

:wink:

Just an FYI but it's pretty easy to do in KDE, in fact I believe they even have a package to help set things up for you. After quite a bit of searching and rummaging through my brain I found Animated Video Wallpaper on KDE-Look.

I know that probably won't help you but it may help fellow KDE users. I did find a topic on the Linux Questions forum that may help with some information from just last November. Again it's for KDE but the info should translate fairly easily to your DE.
