    Video Desktop

    Here's what stupidity I got up to tonight,
    basically I decided that i'ld try overlaying a semi-translparent screensaver over an animated desktop; however of course there is the case that Vista (and Windows7) don't normally allow for the old .html background trick which XP used to have.

    Handilly I found a neat little feature for the VLC media player which allows you to put whatever video it's playing as you desktop, here's how to activate it.



    Anyway, go nuts folks.

    ps. If it doesn't work at first, or doesn't display the option make sure to set the output to DirectX (and not 3DDirectX).
