Desktop Movie Player plays a QuickTime movie on the desktop behind the Finder icons. Quartz Extreme recommend for better performance.

Some Mac users saw how to play a Screen Saver in the background of thedesktop. This application plays a QuickTime movie in the background ofthe screen just behind the icons of the Finder.

To allow clicking on the icons of the Finder, the window must ignore anymouse click, so I'm sorry that I must remove the control bar from themovie player control.

Just drop a movie on the application icon or use the Open command fromthe menu. Press the "esc" key at any time to quit the player.

  • Better Exposé handling. The window is now hidden on using Exposé.
