I think Object Desktop has got some sort of program which allows animated desktops. I could try finding the link later.

It would just use as much RAM and CPU power as it takes to show a movie. You can try making a hrmlsite that shows the movie all the time. As far as I know you can select html files as desktopbackground. Include something like a stop-button in case you want to play a game.

Am I missing something? A entire post maybe?

Interesting to note that it only took Microsoft 3 years to address TIKI's request.

A program called BSPlayer allows you to do exactly that. Replacing your static image wallpaper with a playing movie.

I used the feature from time too time. Create a lengthy playlist of movies, and leave it running in the background.

The media player, movie player, YouTube player, video player, AVCHD player, divx player, free player - BS.Player.com

It's a pretty damn good program too. In fact after my first year using it. I now totally disable microsoft media player/center after formats and use BSplayer exclusively for all of my video needs. It does quite a lot with very little.
