Watch Movies Transparently

Want to be able to keep an eye on a movie or tv show transparently as you work in Mail? or as you surf in Safari?

Afloat is a great plug-in that allows you to do just this. You can adjust your level of transparency, and make a video in Quicktime always on top so that you can see it through all the other windows open. Also, there is an option to view the video as an overlay, so that any clicks will only go through to the window which is not transparent, allowing you to work as if the video window is not even there in your way.

All you have to do is download the file. Install and follow the instructions on screen. After the installation is complete be sure to go to the new pane in System Preferences, and select to enable the plug-in in the Extended section. Now once you start up Quicktime, start any video and go to Window, and on the menu underneath Favorites you will see the new options for Afloat.
