    The screensaver SaveHollywood lets you use a video file as a screensaver. It doesn't work in Snow Leopard though, yet.

    i don't think there is a snow leopard one, but SaveHollyWood works pretty well [​IMG] it takes .mp4 files too so you won't have to convert

    Yet I suppose that "Snow Leopard" is OS X 10.6.2?

    Which is what I have as I just got my new mac like 2 days ago hehe...
    So I guess I gotta wait until they hopefully fix the compatibility issue...

    I do also have access to a couple windows based computers if you know of a way I might be able to create a Mac screensaver on there and then transfer it to my Mac? (I know I know I'm stretching for anything haha...)

    Or even if someone that doesn't have Snow Leopard and has SaveHollywood that wants to take my file and make me a screensaver ;oP :D:p;) Hehe

    SaveHollywood does look pretty nice... I just can't use it :( .......yet...

    SaveHollywood doesnt make a screensaver, it is the screensaver. You just select what movie you want when you choose it. It's a shame as I am trying to find an alternative as well.
