Editors' review

Whether you want to use an interesting video as your screensaver, or would like to use your screensaver to display marketing and promotional material, this app provides an interesting solution. SaveHollywood for Mac enables you to use your own videos, including flash, QuickTime and other formats, as a screensaver. It can also be used as a solution to watch QuickTime videos in fullscreen. This non-intrusive app works great and offers some customization options.

The installation process for SaveHollywood for Mac literally takes seconds. Once it's installed, you can access the app via your Desktop and Screensavers in the Mac system preferences. The app embeds itself into the Mac UI and has a lot of great features and settings for you to play with. You can set up which movies to play and there's also the option of creating a playlist, which you can then loop or shuffle. This app also supports audio playback, with the option to mute and adjust the volume. For what this app offers, it is surprisingly small and responsive. It is completely free and requires no additional software or setup.

If you are looking for something a bit different compared to the normal slideshow and background screensavers, then give SaveHollywood for Mac a try. There are several different applications for this app ranging from advertising to fullscreen video playback.

    "Doesn't work with Snow Leopard"

    September 18, 2011   |   By susantamm

    Version: SaveHollywood 1.9.1

    Pros

    There are no pros as it isn't compatible with 10.6 or 10.7.

    Cons

    Doesn't work with Snow Leopard

    Summary

    This used to be a great app... lots of people upset because it's not compatible with 10.6. The developer is waiting for Apple to fix the bugs. If anyone else would like to be able to use this with Snow Leopard, please look at the White Box website and see what you have to do to try and speed Apple along.

    "Still The Best"

    November 28, 2006   |   By NakAttack

    Version: SaveHollywood 1.8.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    SaveHollywood is still the best screensaver for Mac OS X that plays QuickTime movies. (Are there any others?) I was delighted to find that version 1.8.1 is a Universal Binary despite having been released nearly a year ago.

    "Very nice!"

    Version: SaveHollywood 1.8.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Dev. fixed a problem with first-time use in Tiger and it fired right up just fine. Would be willing to pay for this if developed further, e.g., abling-disabling boxes for clips, a couple effects choices - fades, cubes, etc. But for the price at the moment, this is a gem.
