How To Set Any Video As Mac OS X Screen Saver
Want to set a video of your choice as the Mac OS X screen saver? Then here’s how you can do just that using a simple screen saver app.
SaveHollywood Lets You Set Any Video As Your Mac OS X Screen Saver
Screen savers, in general, can be boring at times. But while some do attempt to spice things up in a lot of cases, but a monotonous moving image can be an eyesore at times. Wouldn’t it be great if you could set any video of your choice as your Mac OS X screen saver? If you’ve been wishing to do just that, then the SaveHollywood screen saver app is what you need.
SaveHollywood is a nice little app which lets you select any video of your choice and set it up as your OS X screen saver. You just simply download and install the screen saver app from the developer’s website here, then go to System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver, then select ‘SaveHollywood’ from the list of available screen savers on the left hand side. Click on the ‘Screen Saver Options’ button to dive right into action and you’ll be able to choose a wide variety of settings to suit your needs, such as the size of the video to be played on the display, and whether or not the video should be played back with sound or not. You also have the option to play multiple videos as the screen saver as well, so you don’t have to look at the same thing over and over again once the screen saver kicks into action. Furthermore, you can assign a random playback order from the list of settings, which, if you’re asking us, is ideal in situations if you happen to have a lot of videos at hand that are going to be played as the screen saver.
We highly recommend that you set up videos that have fast moving objects and very less still frames in order to achieve the ‘true’ screen saver effect, otherwise a still image will leave a physical impression on the display, making you go through a bunch of annoying steps to fix things once again.
The SaveHollywood screen saver app is absolutely free to download and install, and we highly recommend that you give it a shot right away. We’re pretty sure that your creative side will churn out something great for your Mac, and hey, it’s a cool way to show off something amazing on your computer to your friends as well.
