xscreensaver-aerial

An xscreensaver that randomly selects one of the Apple TV4 HD aerial movies and plays it using mpv.

  • The day movies will play between the hours of 7 AM and 7 PM while the night movies will play thereafter.
  • No movie should repeat until all of the respective movies have cycled through once. After that, the queue will reset and continue playing in a random fashion.
  • No excessive HDD usage. When the display is told to sleep by xscreensaver, whatever video is currently playing will finish and another will NOT get called until the display is active again.

Users of Windows or macOS

Xscreensaver is for linux and unix..

Dependencies

  • coreutils
  • mpv
  • wget
  • xscreensaver

Movies

There are 97 movies totally including:

  • China
  • Dubai
  • Greenland
  • Hawaii
  • Hong Kong
  • Liwa
  • London
  • Los Angeles
  • New York City
  • San Francisco
  • ISS
  • Undersea

Installation

Users of Arch Linux

Arch Linux users may simply download the PKGBUILD from the AUR (below) and build as usual. Follow the post install instructions.

Optional video packs useful to avoid multiple calls streaming from Apple (offline copies on your physical system).

Users of other distros

Users of other distros can manually complete these 2 steps:

Note that you don't actually need to install both unless you want to have support for both 2k videos and 4k videos.

  1. If you want both the 2k and 4k versions: Copy atv4-2k.sh from this repo to /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atv4-2k and make it executable by running the following as the root user. Copy atv4-4k.sh from this repo to /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atv4-4k and make it executable by running the following as the root user.
cp atv4-2k.sh /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atv4-2k && chmod +x /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atv4-2k
cp atv4-4k.sh /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atv4-4k && chmod +x /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atv4-4k
  1. Edit ~/.xscreensaver to add support for it to see this script. Look for the line that beings with "programs:" and simply add the following to the file:
"ATV4-2k" atv4-2k \n\
"ATV4-4k" atv4-4k \n\

Optionally download the expected video content manually to save the bandwidth of repeatedly streaming them. This screensaver expects them to be installed to /opt/ATV4/ which should be world-readable. You may use the following to little script to obtain the videos and save them to this location.

Make sure that you have wget installed prior to running the script. For only 2k videos use this script:

#!/bin/bash
# run this from /opt/ATV4/ which you created and assigned 755 premissions manually

#!/bin/bash
