Video Screensaver Maker is a software tool developed specifically to aid people design their own screensavers, starting from videos.
The installation process is quick and uneventful, while the interface you come by presents a very simple and a bit outdated design. It is built to resemble a wizard, which means that you are going to receive tips about what to do next, every step of the way.
This means that all user categories can handle it with great ease, even those that have very little or no experience in the IT world.
This software utility supports only AVI, MPG and WMV video formats, and it is only possible to upload them with the help of the built-in file browser. The “drag and drop” function is not incorporated, which can be considered as a small drawback, as it could have helped people manage their movies in a more efficient manner.
All added items can be viewed in the main window, as a list with their full path. It is possible to upload even more files, as well as remove some of them. Aside from that, you can input a URL and a text to act as a button, so that you can direct more traffic to your website.
Once all these configurations have been set, you just have to click the “Create Screensaver” button and let the program do all the hard work. This process does not tamper with your system’s performance, and once it finishes, you can view all files created and their location on the hard drive.
All in all, Video Screensaver Maker is a pretty decent piece of software, with a good response time and an easy-to-use environment. Nonetheless, it has not been updated in quite a while and it could really use a pick-me-up.
