Btw, Why it need restart when I clicked "Stop" button? I don't like it.

There is better way... You can kill "ScreenSaverEngine" with AppleScript without restart. No more restart.
tell application "ScreenSaverEngine"
quit
end tell

Anyway, I really like your app, hmtinc.

You can extend this even more.

Here is my add-on:

http://www.mediafire...ttzn4lt15ig6b3e

You need to install Soundflower to get it working correctly: http://cycling74.com...r-landing-page/

Then configure the Audio Output to Soundflower and the Audio Input, too, in your System Preferences.
Open Soundflowerbed (part of the package) and select your normal sound output to gain sound again.

Now open the live wallpaper.app and enjoy the iTunes visualizer on your background!
I have even added some settings to control the strength of it and enable/disable to background.
Have fun!

Is there a specific version of sound flower we need to use? I know you aren't the sound flower trouble shooting team, but I can't even get soundflowerbed to open lol. So maybe if there was a lower version than 1.6.2 working with this, I could use that? I don't know really.

Thanks, I really like your app. I was also hoping to get some answers from you on how to format a android live wallpaper and use it as a mac wallpaper through your program.
