    Hi all

    I appologize if this has been covered before.

    What the best "free" screensaver program that will play full screen videos as the screen saver. It would be nice to have one that plays most file types, avi, wmv, mov ect.

    thanks

    A thanks for someone trying to help you would be nice - a blunt effortless and careless reply doesn't reflect much on your pesonality....

    Get MPEG StreamClip and convert the file from WMV to AVI or something..

    Blunt, but correct. SaveHollywood cannot play WMV files out of the box.

    But, if you had pointed it out more politely, I might have been willing to tell you where to download software that would let it.

    Like Microsoft/Flip4Mac's "Windows Media Components for QuickTime" link , which will let QuickTime (and any QuickTime-enabled application, such as SaveHollywood,) play WMV.

    So SaveHollywood stopped working with Snow Leopard, and now of course, we're at Lion. Does anyone know anything that will do what SaveHollywood did that works on Lion? I have tons of videos that I would love to have be my screen savers, just cycling through at random the videos found in x-y-z folders...anything, anything?
