    Ok, so i have been looking around for a way to set your sceensaver as your desktop background. I have looked at backlight 2 but it seems the owner of the site has shut down the site and i cant download it. Im also sorry if there is another thread like this, i searched for it but didnt find much. I know it prolly takes up a lot of ram to have a movie like background but i think it would be cool. Someone also said vlc has an option for it, i cant find it.

    Or if maybe someone could send me backlight 2?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    There's a Dashboard Widget called Desksaver Plus that I used for awhile.

    EDIT: Here it is.

    wow...how awesome is that

    shame it uses 25% of the CPU :(

    EDIT: that 25% was for a particularly heavy screen saver...found one that runs on 2% :D

    There's Serene Saver 2 HD 2.05 that's "An unusual cross between a video desktop (moving wallpaper) and a traditional screen saver."

    just get desktopscrsvr1.1 it uses applescript to set the screensaver as your background and you can put it as an icon in the dock...just click it to turn it on or off
