Display a Web site, movie, or screensaver as a desktop background.

What is Screenwatcher for Mac

Screenwatcher is a movie player for websites, images, and screensavers. Unlike most players, Screenwatcher displays the movies on the desktop background. Therefore you can display an RSS newsfeed or a YouTube video on your desktop. A configurable animation is shown when the player changes from the current movie to the next one. Screenwatcher supports multiple screens. The application is available in English, German, and French.

Supported content types:

  • Any webpage
  • Screensavers (.saver and .qtz)
  • Images (Limited to jp2, png, jpg, tiff and not animated gifs)
  • Movies (All available formats in Quicktime - use the Perian extension to add FLV support)
Supported animations:
  • Dissolve
  • Page curl
  • Swipe
  • Bars Swipe
  • Mod
  • Copy Machine
  • Flash
  • Ripple

Although I bought and use Mach Desktop, and like it's easy of use and many nice features, I have to say that I'm very impressed with Screenwatcher. It took a little time to figure out the interface and see how to add and activate QT and Quartz compositions, but it wasn't hard to do. And I really like that I can create *categories" of movies and thus have playlists of videos I want to show on my desktop. I can't do this with Mach Desktop. Way cool, especially for a free app. Highly recommend Screenwatcher.

Seemed to work fine for me in 10.6.4. Not the most intuitive app, but certainly was capable of displaying the screen saver on the desktop. If you're looking for this sort of thing, then give it a shot.

Don't loose your time downloading this "app". It does not work at all (at least with SL10.6.4). A window opens when launched, but no file can be input to it. There is no menu and no help file (neither when using the app nor even in the downloaded folder). The downloaded folder itself is 41.9 Mb but the "app" itself is only 1.5 Mb. the rest is stuffed with pseudo "samples", actually just short films without any possibility to use them in Screenwatcheran no demo or tutorial. All this looks that a silly joke, especially for those who you pay the bandwith.

This would be really fantastic if it would allow you to apply your screensaver to both backgrounds of dual monitors. I run clocksaver and it works great on the primary monitor.
