We can customize apps on the Dock, add a translucent layer to the Menubar, change the Desktop wallpaper photo, and select from a variety of Mac screensavers. Here’s a Mac screensaver you’ll love.
Custom Video Screensaver
The Mac’s built-in screensaver has options to pull photos from an album in iPhoto, and it comes with a variety of ways to display the photos.
What’s even better is the inexpensive Video Screensaver app. Yep, that’s both the name and the app’s description.
All Video Screensaver does is take one of your favorite videos and use it on the Mac’s screen as a screensaver.
Options and preferences are nominal. There’s a built-in fireplace screensaver which you can use until you create your own screensaver video.
Set the Video Screensaver to start playing the video after x-number of minutes of inactivity.
There’s also an option to prevent the Mac from going to sleep which means the custom video screensaver will continue to play until you return to the Mac.
You can secure your Mac by adding a password to protect access, and there’s an option to start the video screensaver with a keyboard shortcut.
What kind of video can you use? Video Screensaver doesn’t care. Just select the movie to be used, and that’s what Video Screensaver plays. Put together a quick video in iMovie, or grab something else. When the Mac’s screensaver comes on the video plays.
