    In windows, there is a screen saver that plays vids and movies. This is kinda cool when company is over. The videos are all my 30 second family clips from canon camera. Is there such a screen saver for mac?

    I appreciate the links. I saw all those before and I was not clear in my initial post. I have iPhoto with pictures and movies in there. I would like a screensaver that plays the content of iPhoto. Windows vista and 7 has the ability to do that from the photo gallery. Thanks!

    I also want to be able to do this. Have you had any luck? It is the one thing I loved on Windows and don't like on Mac. Thanks

    The whole of iPhoto?

    Not sure on videos, but photos:

    System Preferences --> Desktop & Screen Saver --> Screen Savers

    In the Screen Savers field on the left, choose iPhoto, or an individual folder from within iPhoto if you want to narrow it down.

    Click the '+' button and browse for another folder if it isn't in iPhoto.

    Then, once it has loaded them, they will appear in the box on the right, with the three options below that box.
