    Stitching 4 1080p videos is not a problem.

    But you would need a screensaver that actually can display a video.
    Are there any?

  3. Aren't the fish tank screen savers videos? But he's asking to display all four videos at once. So that would be picture in picture effects. Or I don't understand his question.

    Are you considering simply stitching these 4 1080p vids together to play them as a 4K vid ?

    It does not exactly work like that.

    Also, is that your current PC spec ?

  6. no I wanted 4 different videos going at once- I will abandon that
    How can I make 1 video my screensaver? I have tried the methods found in the search and they are not helping.
    Thanks

    Why not?

    It is actually a simple thing to do.

    But isn't that a 'yes' to my question. You want a screen showing....

    Video1Video2
    Video3Video4

    Of course it is possible. Whether it is practical is a totally different matter.

    Usually a screen-saver is a low-res image/animation designed to err um save your screen when there is no other activity. A Hi-Res vid is overkill.

    And pls answer my Q. about your PC spec. The quoted one will have problems with 1080p. 4K would be a non-starter.

    Edit: Just read your reply in the grave-digging 10 yr old thread. Ignore the request for your PC specs but you should still update your profile.

    Agreed. See my reply above. But wouldn't the OP have a bit-rate issue ?

    Well we do not know his hardware config but obviously in order to view a 4k video at native resolution you need to have a 4k monitor, a fast computer and if you want to view anything over 30fps you need alternatives over your brilliant standard 1.4 HDMI or DVI connections.

    A screen saver is an executable app the is resident and kicks in after a timer, providing full-screen quasi-random visuals. Usually those visuals are fireworks, fishtank, bouncy 3D objects, etc (most of which are generated & rendered in real-time). You can also have the app be essentially a "video player", but it has to be specifically designed to have little input (in the form of control panel data) and otherwise run looped & fullscreen (like kiosk mode).

    It isn't hard to create a video-player screensaver, and I have owned one or 2 in years past, but they are hard to find for some reason, and have not been updated AFAIK.

    I would think it wouldn't be to difficult to fork VLC or MPC-HC/BE or Mplayer to work as a screensaver, but again, AFAIK it hasn't yet been done.

    As DB83 mentioned, 4k (or Quad-HD!) should be possible but not very practical ATM.

    I checked this program:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/videosaver/

    Picked a 4k video and tried it.

    It seems to work fine under Windows 8.1.

    Disclaimer: don't know that program at all, just an f.y.i

    Cool!

    Thanks for that (though I have no current use for it).
