Hidamari is a program for showing videos on the desktop. Free and open source program


  • Autostart after login;
  • Apply static wallpaper with blur effect (Video frame can be applied as system wallpaper, look great in GNOME (currently GNOME exclusive, support for other DE might be added if requested);
  • Detect maximized window and fullscreen mode (Automatically pauses playback when maximized window or full screen mode is detected (currently X11 only);
  • Volume control;
  • Mute/Pause the playback anytime with just 2 clicks;
  • I’m feeling lucky (Randomly select and play a video);
  • Hardware accelerated video decoding (Use vlc as backend (currently HW acceleration doesn’t work with Nvidia+Wayland combination);
  • Gnome Wayland support;
  • Multi-monitor support;
  • Streaming URL support (Use yt-dlp as backend, tested with YouTube videos);
  • Webpage as wallpaper (Theoretically it can be anything from a normal webpage to Unity/Godot WebGL games, be creative).
