So the obvious question (and it isn't address on your website), how will this impact the battery and performance of my macbook? What is the impact on the CPU?

@marcelpanse Hi, We tested it carefully. While comparing it with browser. Live Desktop takes 15 - 17 where as firefox takes 108.4 as the energy impact :). Avg impact is just 2 where as Firefox takes 6. CPU Firefox 55.3 where as Live Desktop is 3.8

Dear Product Hunters, Live Desktop is a product we dreamed for a couple of years but shelved it as it had a lot of complexity and difficulty in getting approval from apple. Finally, we are here today and we believe lot more things can be done and added in next subsequent releases and we have lots of ideas in mind. For the first version, we wanted it to be simple and magical. Enter into a different world by these live themes. We are officially launching it this Independence Day week end. Please download and let us know your feedback. Live Desktop is an awesome app which makes the Mac desktop come alive with stunningly high quality live and animated themes instead of the boring wallpapers.

@hisureshg The effect is ruined when the video jerks when it loops back to the start. this is particularly evident on the lion background for example. You have created a great, low resource app, but you need to work on the content.

@davemill True Dave we too felt it and tried to make it too smooth, we will correct it in upcoming update, but our team loved lion so no other go i had to release it. You are right and with my taste :). Yes we are working on the content and will add high quality ones with smooth ones. Thanks so much Dave for your wonderful feedback.

@hisureshg I think that video people solved the "endless loop problem" many years ago. Don't reinvent the wheel, find someone who has done it before.

Not a fan of the current selection of desktops, but there is potential. Currently I just run `/System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background` on startup for the same effect — Looks amazing when paired with [Aerial](https://www.producthunt.com/tech...)!
