    SkrewCommon software scares me. It always seemed to be incompatible with something causing a restore in some way or fashion. Back in the 1.1.4 days. Hope they put out a better product this time. I thought they dropped out of the game, its been so long since they have been mentioned...

    btw, installed it and it doesnt seem to be compatible with winterboard. The video wallpaper didnt work unless I turned off my themes. Not too cool of a trade. Immediately uninstalled it after that... cant comment on the video tones... maybe Ill reinstall it and try it later.

    as far as performance, it didnt have the problem with keeping pace like winterboard has when using video wallpapers(the animations in winterboard speed up and slow down erratically), but It has about a 1-2 second delay when you unlock the springboard before it starts to play, and sometimes it will not play at all. So not very stable yet.

    Works fine here too. More stable than the previous in my opinion. Also like the new picture masks feature.

    I will admit, after installing v Wallpaper, I ended up getting two loading circles out of the blue but other than that, its been perfect. Although I use my video without it, the overlay feature is f' awesome! It definitely has a lot of potential.

    I'm trying to add the source but either way with or without the back slash / at the end I get an error and I'm not sure if it's this source that is the problem. Is there a way to tell which source is the problem? How do we get vWallpaper to work with our current WB Theme?

    I installed vwallpaper, and I really love it- but I am having some problems.

    I have winterboard installed, and I just went in and deleted the Wallpaper.png folder, and it works... most of the time.

    The only problem that I have is that it will freeze, or go into safe mode when I open an app. Doesn't matter which app, as sometimes it is phone, sometimes SMS, notes, cydia, boss prefs. Then, the same app will open fine without issue. At first, I thought it was my vwallpaper (I had ssh'd in my own .mov file) but then it happened again. I think it may be conflicting with something in mobile substrate. I have winterboard, quickgold, five icon dock, vibrus, and veency installed along with vwallpaper. Anyone know of any conflicts between those apps?

    its always worked for me from the start but i did end up taking the clock widget off cuz it kept slowing my phone down and with the video it was horrible everything would glitch and i finally noticed my first problem with it to.. when i use pwnplayer and exit to my springboard if i have vwall enabled my music stops. i think pwnplayer isnt that up to par on my phone as it was on my touch anyway

    I used the static wallpaper option and after a day or so it really would slow down my home screen while flipping thru pages. A reboot would fix the problem but then it just comes back another day later.

    After removing the app I don't have this problem any longer.
