Yes, it is. desktopCinema is playing your favorite movie as your wall paper!

And one click of paste playing your YouTube and URL streaming video embedded or non-embedded!

Because you are a genius and chose to work on a Mac, you probably multi-task at working and playing at the same time. That's why we designed desktopCinema for you!

Your video replaces your desktop picture/wallpaper, so working and watching at the same time has never been easier. Our clean and simple controls let you easily pause and mute video or audio from the menu bar.

desktopCinema is not limited to just movies, it also supports local video files! Display those beautify animated wallpapers or watch your favorite blockbuster while you work—and if the boss shows up, freeze and hide that movie with a simple "Pause Me" click.

Version v2.51
Review by Marble68

Doesn’t play streams like it says - Bought, clicked to play a stream, and it offered two test streams which neither worked. Additionally, asks you to install other libraries, one of which is from Microsoft - and it’s not there any more? Ultimately, what I’m after is streaming HD video as my desktop background; like live nature scenes or the NASA ISS HD stream. Maybe someday it’ll do that. When it does, I’ll re-install it.
