There’s a good chance you already use the VLC media player. But VLC isn’t just a media player — it’s a complete Swiss Army Knife for digital videos and music, filled with useful and fun features you haven’t found yet.

So I used the video as wallpaper thing:
I think it's not very effective.

The video wallpaper worked fine for me. Very distracting and impractical, but fun.

Thanks Chris! I knew about most of those features but could not for the life of me figure out the streaming server. Appreciate you taking the time out to write about this! Now if I could only figure out how to make firefox accept the latest VLC plugin.

The conversion and network playback thing will be extremely useful for me. Thanks for revealing it!

That's a cluttered desktop you have there, NSD!

One thing it can't do: show you the progress of a video by shading its taskbar icon, useful when the video is paused/minimized, as a reminder of your progress. Other video players, browsers (e.g. download progress), etc. (basically, any program where this makes sense as a feature) have been able to do this for ages.

So I realized that this problem lies not in VLC not being able to use my wallpaper properly, but VLC not using the “Output” thing properly. All movies I play also show as pink (horrible shade too). Fixed this by setting default output.

I backup my movie video DVDs by creating an ISO file of each video DVD using ShrinkDVD or WinX DVD Copy Pro. I discovered that VLC Player can read/playback directly from the ISO files so created. So VLC Player and my 2TB portable USB hard drive on which I store the ISOs form a very handy movie library.
