Isn't a WMV file a Windows Movie File?

Download SaveHollywood and Wallsaver.

You'll need to convert the video to a QuickTime compatible format first though (the presence of Flip4Mac makes no difference).

Do I need both the softwares or either one is good. Converting it to mp4 is not a concern.

You need both. SaveHollywood is a screensaver and Wallsaver is an app that allows you to set screensavers as your desktop pic. Just configure SaveHollywood in System Preferences and then select it in Wallsaver.

Thanks, although I wouldn't mind if there was an easier way.
