Video Screensaver Maker

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
In the age of Web video, why limit yourself to screensavers that simply flip through static images? This software helps take digital video on your hard drive and turn it into a screensaver that can be used immediately or distributed to others. However, limited features make it hard to recommend this download over other similar tools. Separate video files can't be packed into a single screensaver installation file. It supports only AVI, MPEG, and WMV video formats, and can't make screensavers with trial restrictions attached. The wizard-based interface works well, if inelegantly. Overall, the software is adequate for home use, but anyone who wants to create and distribute screensavers to others would be better served by a more powerful program.

Developer's Description

Enter your own WMV, AVI, or MPG videos, then automatically package and distribute to others as a video screensaver, royalty free. Simply select any videos on your hard drive, and a screensaver is automatically created with an installation file. Easy to use interface walks you through the steps, and you can then distribute your application as business advertising, selling to others, or simply for entertainment. You can also customize your own name for each screensaver, and you can add a button link in the screensaver which links directly to your website when clicked, adding more traffic and free advertising for your website. All screensaver settings are all completely changeable by each user, allowing them to stretch the videos to any screen size. An uninstall is added to each screensaver, making it easy for each user to uninstall if they wish.
