This app works well, and is the only app in the store for Video Wallpaper that allows custom videos. Very glad the author didn't go the route of "here are some pre-set videos you can use as wallpaper".

Unfortunately, this does not support multiple spaces/desktops - the video only shows on one at a time. (I'm sure that is probably not easy to implement) If this was possible, I would give it 5 stars.

Works on fine as of Jan. 2022

Works fine on Monterey. At first I thought this app wasn't working, as no window opens and there is no indication the app is running. Instead it puts an icon in your menu bar (which I didn't see becuase I have the icons hidden...). After realizing that the app works as expected.

Its very simple and clean with no fuss or addons. I really appreciate that.

Love, Love, Love

Works as easy and well as advertised. I love having my desktop so alive! 2 caveats: The video does not underlie the upper menubar when that is set to be transparent. This is super minor annoyance (maybe it can be fixed in an update?) Also, this app conflicts with the Aerial screensaver plugin. If you want both, you'll have to chose. Does not conflict with any of the Apple screensavers, so you can just use one of those.
