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 the desktop. This application plays a QuickTime movie in the background of the screen just behind the icons of the Finder.

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

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

What's New

  • Better Exposé handling. The window is now hidden on using Exposé.
  • Folders are searched recursively now.
