"It does the trick"

January 18, 2016  |  By Innominandum

2016-01-18 12:23:20  |  By Innominandum

 |  Version: Video Screensaver 1.0

Pros

- It works
- Simple to use

Cons

- A bit unrefined. You can see the video-playback window be scaled to full-screen when the screen saver kicks in.
- No features
- No video playlist
- Can't mark the "beginning" and "ending" of the desired sequence

Summary

I've been using this screen saver over the years and can confirm it works under Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. If you're having trouble getting this screen saver working, ensure you have installed the DirectX Redistributable and a Codec Pack such as the K-Lite Codec Pack found on FileHippo. If there are errors, it may be due to the file itself or the codec installed on your system.

"Does not work"

June 15, 2015  |  By SuttonIT

2015-06-15 09:18:52  |  By SuttonIT

Pros

It comes in a small executable, trying to be positive here... only 641 KB! But... that's let down by the fact it doesn't work.

Cons

It doesn't work.

Summary

Don't risk it.

"Two different computers, one Windows 7 one Windows 8"

March 11, 2013  |  By Hollyecho

2013-03-11 07:17:43  |  By Hollyecho

 |  Version: Video Screensaver 1.0

Pros

Looked like a great way to display (screensaver) video I had taken using MP4, preview worked perfectly.

Cons

Crashes, never comes up, both computers. Get back to my desk and it says: "stopped unexpectedly", never to display video as a screensaver on its own, on either computer.

Summary

Doesn't work. I am very happy for those that it does work for, but for me, on two different computers, two different operating systems, it does not work.

"It works like it says it does."

October 05, 2012  |  By AliJordanBrown

2012-10-05 15:26:04  |  By AliJordanBrown

 |  Version: Video Screensaver 1.0

Pros

It is excellent for making screensavers from favorite videos.

Cons

I can't save each individual screensaver as a file. The program only allows for one video to be used through the program in the control panel.

Summary

I would really love it if I could actually save my screensavers in a separate file so I could easily switch them in a couple clicks.

"AVG gave a "Threat Detected" warning"

May 16, 2011  |  By VinceInTX

2011-05-16 15:36:07  |  By VinceInTX

 |  Version: Video Screensaver 1.0

Pros

N/A. Didn't risk installing it.

Cons

Triggered virus scanner.

Summary

Perhaps the coding for this application merely coincidentally resembled a virus. It's odd that no other screen saver I've ever installed has, but it's possible. Regardless, I will not install this until and unless there is a CNET official clear-of-virus statement, and an explanation from the publisher, or it is re-written to not trigger a virus alert.
