Overview

Aerial - Apple TV Aerial Views Screen Saver

Aerial is a Mac screensaver (macOS 10.12 or later) based on the new Apple TV screensaver that displays the Aerial movies Apple shot over New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, China, etc. Starting with version 2.0.0, it also includes videos shared by Joshua Michaels & Hal Bergman!

Aerial is completely open source, so feel free to contribute to its development.

This repository is used solely for development.

Starting with version 2.3.0, Aerial can now display current weather information and forecasts to your location, thanks to OpenWeather.

    About macOS 10.15 compatibility & tvOS 13 videos

    You absolutely need the 1.6.0+ for Catalina support, previous versions will not work. Catalina changes a lot of things for screensavers:

    The good :

    • tvOS 13's new videos are available
    • HDR playback is now available on Catalina !

    The bad :

    • In macOS Catalina, 3rd party screensavers are now running in a sandboxed container which limits everything. As of right now there are no workarounds for many of the restrictions.
    • Auto updates through Sparkle are broken in Catalina right now, this includes both the silent updates and the updates that you can launch manually from the control panel. You will need to install manually for the time being until we get it fixed (don't forget to close system preferences first !). People who installed with homebrew are unaffected.
    • Pressing right arrow to skip no longer works because of sandboxing
    • After upgrading to Catalina, your previous settings will be ignored as they are not copied over by the installer : -> Instructions to move your settings to container : https://github.com/JohnCoates/Aerial/issues/801#issuecomment-499508354
    • Aerial can only write in the legacyScreenSaver.appex sandbox container, which means in Catalina, JSON files and videos can only be downloaded in ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.ScreenSaver.Engine.legacyScreenSaver/Data/Library/Application Support/Aerial. Aerial can still read (only) the rest of your system disk so you can still store the videos in another folder after they are downloaded by manually setting the Cache. But Aerial cannot download videos to this cache.
    • You cannot use a mounted volume (network or external drive) as your read only cache.
    • You cannot use symbolic links to get around the new sandboxing restrictions... unless you disable SIP (which I'd strongly discourage!).
    • Your cache may be wiped by the Catalina installer

    Known issues :

    • On Macs with Intel Graphics, Aerial may run as a tiny rectangle in the bottom left corner instead of full screen. This is an Intel graphics driver bug in Catalina. You can workaround it by enabling the system clock. Be aware that while it will greatly reduce the issue, it's not a 100% fix. More info here : https://github.com/JohnCoates/Aerial/issues/871

  • Road to 2.0 with Cache limit/management and macOS Big Sur 11

    Road to 2.0 with Cache limit/management and macOS Big Sur 11

    Hey all, I'll use this to track and discuss the work in progress on (finally) adding a cache size limit to Aerial, and better cache management/playlist management tools. There will be some core changes to Aerial's UI including the videos tab, so that it displays more clearly what videos are available/cached/etc and handle some new issues created by the management.

    For now, here's a very early screenshot of what I'm looking at right now in terms of Cache options :

    Capture d’écran 2020-06-03 à 17 49 12

    So the very first pref will be the limit, I plan to default this to 5 GB for new users (what to do about current users is still in the air).

    The second pref is all about how to manage the cache:

    Capture d’écran 2020-06-03 à 17 49 24

    In a perfect world, rotation would probably be the ideal setting here for new users (and stop downloading for current users, I'd say).

    But whatever I do, I'll get support tickets :

    • With rotation as default, people will complain about bandwidth issues (especially with 5 GB)
    • With rotation as default, and bumping the cache to a higher limit, people will complain about free space (so just like right now)
    • With stop downloading as default, people will complain about not getting new videos

    So 🤷

    Last setting is the periodicity (which probably default to monthly to alleviate issues above).

    About how all this will work :

    • Stop downloading is self explanatory. When the limit is reached, Aerial will ignore uncached videos in your playlist (the currently selected ones in the video list) and only play cached videos (so that's about how it works right now, but with the limit). If you manually try to download a video when limit is reached, block it and tell you to increase cache size (this will be more clear with the new videos ui).
    • Rotation, when Aerial starts playing (in full screen mode), it will play first a cached video, then it will check in the background the download date of each file, and start by purging old files (that includes videos in other resolutions if you say switched from 1080p to 4K HDR). Then start filling up the cache in the background with fresh ones (randomly picked, again there will be improvement on what to download next with the new videos ui). They will be able to get played after the first video is done.

    Now what I ended up deciding is NOT stream videos to replace cache. Streaming is awfully unreliable and I really don't want to do it. While I'll probably keep a checkbox for those who really really want to stream, it will not be part of the cache rotation because that's too much of a mess.

    So that's about it for right now, I'm still working on implementation and I'll update this post when I have a build to share and more details about the other changes (especially the redesigned videos tab to more clearly explain what videos are cached/etc).

  • Graphical glitches in beta and GM macOS High Sierra 10.13

    Graphical glitches in beta and GM macOS High Sierra 10.13

    Had successfully running on Sierra, updated to High Sierra beta and screen saver no longer works. Will load up but images appears distorted. You can tell movement is occurring in the background, but the image itself does not correctly display. Attempted to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. Checked the logs and do not see any errors that have to do with the screen saver

    I attempted taking a screenshot of the distortion so that you could see what I mean and the screen shot actually shows the correct image.

    The image is displayed correctly very briefly prior to the image being distorted. It appears that when the image starts moving is when the distortion occurs.

    Disabling automatic graphic switching prevents the issue from occurring. This was not the case prior to High Sierra.

    Can't exit screensaver without using force quit.

    General troubleshooting tips

    Before logging an issue please check that:

    • [X] You have the latest version installed (There may be a beta version that fixes your issue), see here for the latest releases and bug fixes: https://github.com/JohnCoates/Aerial/releases
    • [X] Your issue isn't already mentioned in our issues. You may find a workaround there or a similar request already made.
    • [X] Your problem isn't mentioned in the troubleshooting section.

    If none of this fixes your issue, tell us about the problem you are experiencing or the feature you'd like to request.

    Required information

    In order to help us sort your issue, we ask that you provide the following information:

    • [X] Mac model: MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
    • [x] macOS version: 10.14.4 (18E226)
    • [X] Monitor setup: using internal + external screen (PHL 272B8Q 27-inch (2560 x 1440)). Screensaver is set to only show on external screen.

    If appropriate, please enable Debug mode and Log to disk in Advanced tab and replicate your bug, then attach the AerialLog.txt file (You can access this file through the Advanced tab).

    Description of issue / Feature request

    Seemingly at random the screensaver gets 'stuck' and I cannot close it without resorting to force quit (cmd-opt-shift-esc). The screensaver continues to play and when I move the mouse I actually see the mouse move on top of the video. Cmd-tab or similar do not work either.

    The issue appears randomly every few days, otherwise it exits normally. I am not sure why it happens those times and have not managed to reproduce it, which is why the log is missing; it just happened again but might as well take a while before I see it again.

    It seems similar to the (closed) issue #51, but I do not have the options set like in that ticket.

    feature request: set playback speed (slower)

    I really love Aerial and bought the content from jetsoncreative, it really is mesmerizing. I would love to have one more option: adjustable playback speeds for the content. (either in general or for each clip) Some clips play in real time and especially cars are quite "too fast" in comparison to the slow motion content, to really have this nice slow motion effect everyone is loving, it would be lovely if the playback speed could be set to 75% in the settings. Also, it would make the clips a little longer and there would be more time to "feel" the place :)

  • Fan starts spinning very loudly as soon as screensaver starts

    Fan starts spinning very loudly as soon as screensaver starts

    I have a 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2018 with macOS Big Sur installed. Latest Aerial version 2.3.3.

    As soon as the screensaver starts, my fans start spinning loudly and the MacBook starts to get hot. It never stops, even if I leave the screensaver on for hours.

    Now, I do understand about background tasks running while the screensaver is on, however, that doesn't seem to be the problem here.

    The issue does not occur when I use one of the stock screensavers. It does appear no matter which video quality I select for Aerial (even on 1080p H264). The interesting part is that the fans start spinning even when I use "Launch Aerial Fullscreen on this monitor" in the experimental features or press on "Preview" in the Settings.

    If I open the video from the Cache folder in Quicktime on full screen, no fan can be heard even after a long time of it playing, even with 4K HEVC.

    Around 20 seconds after the screensaver comes on, even just when clicking "Preview" in the Settings, the fans start spinning loudly and the MacBook starts to get hot.

    All videos are cached. I do not use Little Snitch. I do not use iCloud Photos. I do not have a second monitor attached. I do not use any overlays or anything at all, the only option that is activated is "Show with Clock" in the settings. This issue has persisted at least since upgrading to macOS Big Sur. I remember that a long while ago the screensaver would run and everything is completely quiet. However, I can not pinpoint to when exactly this changed.

    Any idea what could possibly cause this problem? Please help. This is driving me crazy.

    If possible, would it be possible to let us set the formatting to the one that Apple uses for (at least) the Shortcuts app on iOS? I believe its UTS 35, where you put in things like h:mm and get single-digit hours if the hour is single-digit or double-digit if the hour is double-digit. Just thought it would be nice since for example, April 4th displays as April 04 on Aerial, and other similar things.

    I'm really enjoying Aerial so far - I have it set up on my Late 2013 MBPr hooked up to an external 4k monitor in clamshell mode. Unfortunately, any time Aerial is running, GPU usage goes up and so the fans spin up. As soon as I log in and start just using a browser/regular apps, the fans turn off.

    The feature I'd like to request is a hotkey toggle that pauses the video on the screensaver to stop using the GPU. Or, if there is a way to detect if the monitor is off via DDC/CI (ddcctl) that would be cool to integrate too!

  • Feature request: Weather at video location

    Feature request: Weather at video location

    Description of issue / Feature request

    I was thinking, and that was widely considered a bug...

    Anyway, the current weather is not very useful to me, mainly because I find it easy enough to look out the window to figure it out. It would have been more useful to me if it was the weather prognosis, but that would probably be such a complex UI widget that I don't think it is within the scope of this software.

    So, my second thought was that it would be much nicer instead if I cold get the current weather at the location of the current video.

    I guess that would mean extending the manifest format somehow, and some like the space ones may not be feasible.

    Thanks!

Apologies for the inconvenience.
