like the desktop background moving?
I had avatar sized gifs running on my background before, set as tiled. Works fine but gets annoying seeing all the pics moving after a while. Stretching it made it look awful, so setting it as tile was the only choice. Had it set for about 5 minutes before I set my background back to a static picture.
Or you can download a program that lets your rotate wallpapers after whatever minutes. I used that too, but it got annoying as well.
you can do this using winamp
once you got the visualization going, go to Options -> Configure Plug-in.
from then you click Settings -> Display, then click Overlay mode and Set Desktop to Color
well, this is clearly one of the most annoying things I've heard in a while.
oh come on, i just started liking you, don't start trolling around again.
You lost me after "go to Options". You can't configure a plug-in while it's running. Where is this Overlay mode and set desktop to color?
one cool option of bsplayer is the ability to play a movie on the desktop
oops, first rightclick on the player then Visualization -> Configure Plug-in all that other stuff i said.
and yes you can configure a plug-in while it's running.
It must be your plug-in then, I don't see any of those settings on Milk Drop, Tripex, or any other plug-in I'm using.
Link to program
There was a program I used a few years ago called Geiss... kinda like a lava lamp for your desktop. It was kinda cool but got old pretty quickly. Google it.
If you are looking to use your own animated gifs and have them moving over your wallpaper...On WinXP...
Right click on the desktop. Click properties. Under Desktop tab. Click Customize Desktop. Web. Click New, then Browse. Use any gifs from any folder you want to. Move and drag them anywhere over your wallpaper.
Go back in after you set them where you want & check lock desktop items. It's a waste of resources, but good for a laugh if you're bored.
animated gifs slow your comp down
The name of the program is called "WallPaper Master" by James Garton. It is a Desktop Randomizer or Desktop Background Changer or WallPaper Randomizer or Bitmap Changer. Call it what you want except garbage.
