Run a movie as your desktop background

Here's a cool trick for you.

Replace the boring wallpaper on your desktop with a movie.

$gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false
$mplayer -rootwin -fs movie_file.avi

  1. This, of course, is for gnu/linux systems.

    To get back your old desktop, you can use this command:

    $gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop true && nautilus
