Hello there.

I was so excited with brand new feature of Live Wallpaper 0.7+ application, that allows you to put looped video on the background, that I've decided that it's time for us to have our very own Sony XMB wave background.

I took youtube video from the user afxwinter (so all credits for excellent visuals goes to him and to him only) and encoded it to match n900's screen.

Here's the link to download it:

If anyone has another idea, what looped video can we use - post 'em here, I'll try to encode them and store here too.


List of available videos

From what I saw in my latest testing - yes there is some overhead - especially if playing videos as one of the screens. That being said - its not really that bad.

Ah okay, I was more thinking of the battery consumption.
Regardless, awesome job Wazd. Looks good.

Is it possible to reduce the file size from 3.02MB? It kind of jerks a bit when switching between desktops for me.

@wazd nice one this little vid for live wallpapers

It's mostly for showoff imo, the cpu runs at a 100% when using it (only when on the desktop with live wallpapers)... No lagging/jerking here when shifting desktops, but then again i'm oc'd
