Play video as your wallpaper!

Thanks Lukas Krejza, but Gryffus for SUSE packages :) Thanks dglent for the Mandriva rpm!

It installs TWO files which can be easily deleted by:
# rm /usr/lib/kde4/wallpapervideo.so
# rm /usr/share/kde4/services/video.desktop

KDE4 is usually installed to /usr/, if not then "kde4-config --prefix" will tell u where instead.

Messy unstyled code BUT its optimised and FAST ;) To KDE devs: It just looks messy but the code is fine- I can clean it up to fit KDE guidelines if needed.

We live in 2009. Computers can easily handle this. We should be prettifying our desktops a lot more.

If a kind person makes me packages I'll upload ;) thx

AVI
MKV
OGG
MPG
MPEG
OGV
MP4
OGM
ASF
FLV
WMV

Note: Small filesize videos => More compressed => Take longer to decode => Eat the most CPU

Best is raw AVI

OK I looked into this and its not a good idea because the info is not always reliable like windows can be transparent.

to bad, is saves energy and cpu power.

What you mean whit "windows can be transparent"?
You mean unlike on MS windows systems, windows can do more (like transparent etc.) than on MS windows.
Maybe a option box so users can select this option when they want.

Nevertheless nice peace of work.

Hi,
nice app. :)
But its a battery killer on my laptop. :D

By the way you have a small bug in the run() function in video.cpp

int spf = (1000000000 * a.num) / (double) a.den;
if (!time2die)
QThread::usleep(spf);

This will cause the video to play really really slow (don't know if that was the objective...)

Anyway
spf should be:
int spf = (1000000 * a.num) / (double) a.den;

At least to play the videos in real time.

yep it was. the encoding & redraw process eats up CPU and hence battery so I made it deliberately slightly slower.

after all its for look and not viewing video.

maybe I will make it an option in the settings :p

k i changed it (and credited you). better imo to have proper speed and people not think its a bug (rather than feature) :pp

When I try to compile, it stops with the following "error":

Quote:
No cmake_minimum_required command is present. A line of code such as

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6)

should be added at the top of the file. The version specified may be lower if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project. For more
information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers. Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.


I added cmyke_minimum_required(VERSION 2.4) by myself, but don't know if these is really the minimum required version. ;-)

that isn't an error, it is a warning that doesn't stop the cmake process. there must be in the output an error saying you're missing some package
