To get Save Hollywood screensaver to show a video with Sonoma try setting it up in System Settings - Screensaver as usual - shut down, then pull the plug on your Mac for 30 seconds. Plug back in and after fully started, see if it plays your selected video.
Worked for me!

it does not work. I can see video thumbnail in settings, but in preview it says "no video"

I'm running macOS Monterey 12.6 and it won't allow me to add my video. The + button opens but will not allow me to "Add". I can drag and drop the video into the queue but when I preview it or allow it to go to Screen Saver, I only have a blank screen that says "No Video". The video seems to meet all of the technical specifications and I'm at a loss for why it won't work.

I have MacOS Big Sure Version 11.6.2, if this helps in any way.
The problem is: I press add and the mp4 format files does not do anything.
