My favorite screensaver
Pretty nifty app. I love it because when I am working at my desk, I can have a nature documentary playing in the background, much cooler than any standard screensaver. 4 stars because this is good and useful, but not completely polished yet. I do have some feature requests for the future - 1. check box in preferences to have it open at login. I added it manually to my login items. 2. I would like to have multiple monitor support (playing two different movies would be even better!) Right now, one screen stays black and the other plays the movie. 3. I would like the ability to set a folder of movies to be used at random instead of just one. Variety is the spice of life. Again, great work, and I look forward to more updates!
video plays fine, isn’t useful as a screensaver
This program doesn’t integrate with Mac’s screensaver or sleep mode. Normally a Mac screensaver will do two things: 1) allow the system to go to sleep eventually, if you’ve set it to, 2) not interrupt certain programs like Netflix/Silverlight running fullscreen.This program, when running (and the option to bypass sleep mode is NOT checked) does not allow the computer to ever sleep. So if the screensaver starts when you leave the computer for the night, when you check it in the morning the video will have been running and monitor have been on the whole time.I finally deleted it when I was watching a movie fullscreen and it interrupted. This makes it totally useless. It ran the video beautifully, too, I wish I could use it!
Great but needs multiple monitor support
I really like this app, I feel like it was worth the price but all it needs is the ability to play different videos on different screens when running multiple monitors.
Not worth it!
I thought that I would be able to have a live streaming video as something to choose from. This only lets you use a video that you have downloaded already. Who wants to watch a video over and over again for their screensaver? If they enable live feeds then this would be awesome!
Easy to use, needs option for mute
Video Screensaver is easy to use and works very well. However, there should be a mute option in the Preferences panel.
