has anyone tried the new vWallpaper. right now its only a test and it only plays 1 video but its got potential. the only problem i noticed with it is that when you are on your home screen the screen doesn't trun off, i guess it acts like something is being done by the user so the auto-lock doesn't kick in. im going to play around with it to see if i can replace its video with a custom video of mine. i will report back.

It's called vWallpaper.
The only one on it right now, is an exploding fireball behind your icons.

this is soo sweet! I can't wait till there are more choices or you can use your own video. Anyways I duno if I'm gone be able to use it until after some of the bugs are worked out because when I enable it on my phone and then for enstance pull up safari to do a little EIC browsing my touch screen won't work. Any suggestions?

Yeah, it's a little buggy. Has great potential, though.

ok so i found where the movie is located. applications/vWallpaper.app/library/skrew/videos and the movie is fire.mov. i deleted it and replaced it with my own fire.mov but its still the original fireball that shows up. i double and tripple checked to make sure that it was my movie that i uploaded. i did a respring to the springboard and i even did a hard restart and still the original movie, that i deleted, plays. weird. guess il do a little more snooping around. if anyone knows what the solution might be that would be great and if i find the solution will let you guys know

ok i figured out how to change the video. you need to replace fire.mov with your own fire.mov in both applications/vWallpaper.app/library/skrew/videos/ and library/skrew/videos/ you just need to upload the same video in both locations and make sure that it is called fire.mov all lowercase

wow this is so cool. i'll have to check it out. Can someone make a quick video and post it on youtube or something and show us? My only concern is that it will reduce battery life.

its not on the lock screen and so far it doesn't seem to run in the back ground. my battery doesn't seem to have drained any faster than ususal since i have installed.
im having trouble uploading a video to youtube so if someone else could do that for hayes and other people that would be great

hey i just now downloaded this app and it came with 2 different movies for the wallpaper, one is the fireball one you described and the other is the one of a drop of water falling into a puddle and then it shows the ripple effect. both are really cool. and i noticed at the bottom of the application settings screen it has a todo list including a way to share videos online. i think that will be awesome.

EDIT: the only thing i hate about this is if you have it enabled and are listening to music, then go to the home screen, it stops the music =[

That's strange, I just installed it and mine only came with the fireball movie. Anyone know where I can get the water drop from?
