CNET Editors' review
The unreliable and unattractive AVI/MPG Screensaver is yet another run-of-the-mill program for turning AVI, MPG, MOV, or WMV files into screensavers. You also can add soundtrack files, though only in WAV and MIDI format.
Incredibly, in our tests AVI/MPG Screensaver failed to work with AVI files. And for a shareware (as opposed to freeware) app, it offers far too few options, merely allowing you to set the playback order (random or sequential) and frame size. The interface looks utterly amateurish and doesn't even let you add multiple video clips at once. In short, we don't recommend it.
From SoftDD Software:
View your own MPEG, AVI, or WMV videos as a screensaver. You can play your videos randomly or in sequence, and you can adjust the size of the videos playing or stretch your videos full-screen if you wish. Video sound is also included, and you also have the option of turning off all video sound. Other options include previewing each video from the settings window, playing a midi or wav sound file, repeating the sound file, and password protection. You can also choose to play videos at their default video size for best video quality.
Version 3.25 includes the ability to stretch videos full screen, or adjust videos to any height or width.

"Does The Job!"
Version: AVI/MPG/WMV Screensaver 3.23
Great for making video clips for your screensavers. I put about 10 WMV clips from ebaumsworld.com into my screensaver, and it worked perfectly with the original sound! Short file size. Also add midi and wav sounds. Choice to play full screen, medium, small, or the size the clip came in originally.
Must click, or press key to exit screensaver, and it displays the pros of buying the program before you can return to your windows screen. Couldn't find the password feature, so people could change the videos without permission.
