Video Screensaver

This simple screensaver plays any video file of your choosing in full-screen mode, and cleanly exits when you move your mouse or press a key. Simply copy the screensaver file to your Windows folder, open the Screen Saver Settings panel, click the "Settings" button and select the video you want to have played as your screensaver. A wide range of video formats are supported, including MP4, MOV, MPEG, AVI and others. You can optionally use the up and down arrow keys, or the scroll wheel on your mouse, to adjust the volume.

Does perfectly what it says.
But I'd also request for a feature to play several videos from a folder or playlist with an optional randomizer.

Good but could have better install instructions for a novice. Just copy the .rsrc unzipped directory into C:\Windows. Also it would be nice if it would run all movie files in a directory randomly instead of running just a single movie.

For Salvatore, the first reviewer. Use the up and down arrow keys, or the scroll wheel on your mouse, to adjust the volume.

I like it but it only works on one screen, my other screens does not play the video

Works great! Distracting depending on what video you use, but I'm okay with that.

Its Awesome! I've been looking for something where i can turn my mp4 videos to a screensaver. And it also works really smooth!
Definitely gets a 5 Star rewiev!

Works fine with my Blender animation of 16 only seconds but infinite loop once displayed in Video Screensaver, (until I get out the screensaver mode of course).
