please verify that you have the latest version and activate the option "check the Pause the video on when the desktop is busy" in the widget settings. If the problem persists, send what application is the cause of the problem and the link of the video. Thanks for the feedback. (Pd update with the command "kpackagetool5 -t Plasma/Wallpaper -u smartvideowallpaper.tar.gz", note the "-u")

Hi, there are 2 options in the configuration:
- Pause the video when there is a maximized or full-screen window.
- Pause the video when the desktop is busy (an application is active).
You want the video to never stop? Please send a gif with your windows stutters.

Can you please change it so that when "mute" option is ticked, it would completely disable audio playback? Otherwise on my system its audio player is occupying exclusive audio output device, conflicting with hi-fi music player apps...
