While this is not exactly the same, you can try Quartz Desktop. It allows you to put any quartz composition as your desktop background. It is very resource friendly and works amazingly well.

As for videos as desktop background, I'm sure it won't be too difficult considering that quicktime is at the very core of the OS.

Ah. I remember. There is this application that allows you to paste your DVD player movies onto the desktop background. Just can't get the name. Although, the real question remains, "Why on earth would someone want an animated desktop?". They are so distracting and use up precious resources. The static one is the best.

I'm currently using the Wallpaper clocks over at vladstudio. They don't use any resources, tell me the time (useful) and well, they look amazing.
