Well, it <i>is</i> possible, but not though XP. The only thing I've seen do
that is InterVideo WinDVD. The shadows look kind of weird, but it's still
pretty neat.

Unfortunately, you can't really <i>set</i> it as a desktop. You have to open
WinDVD, go to Display menu, and click Video Desktop within the Video Window
menu. Also, the feature doesn't support all formats... and I believe .wmv is
one of the ones it doesn't support. Well, that's no suprise seeing that the
program was designed for DVD media.

Still, WinDVD is a great product. I highly recommend WinDVD 6. Not only
because it can put a video on the desktop, but because all of the extra
features. TrimensionDNM (DNM stands for Digital Natural Motion) is an
excellent feature on WinDVD. It can smooth a video like nothing I've seen
before. The audio boost pack is another neat feature that enhances the audio.
It has SRS effects as well as Dolby and Spatializer effects.

I know a lot of this wasn't really needed, but I just wanted to brag about
this program. >_>;; Anyways, as with almost all of my messages, if you want
to thank me or whatever, don't reply to this. Please just mail me at
scarslasher@yahoo.com

Thanks

You can easily place a playing video on your desktop by embedding the video
on a local HTML page and selecting that as your background.

Copy paste the following html code in the notepad. change the file name and
path in the "EMBED src=" line to one you want to play as background video.
Save the file as "desktop.htm" (or something else but the extension should
be htm).

Then from "Control Panel->Display->Desktop->browse..." select the file you
just saved. if thing go right the webpage should now be displayed as your
desktop with the video embedded and playing full screen.


<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>My Desktop</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<p align="center">
<EMBED src="c:\eid2004s.wmv" autostart=true loop=true ShowControls=0
fullscreen=true>
</p>
</BODY>
</HTML>
