    Is there any way to get quicktime files to play during the screen saver in windows XP. I can get everything setup and i can even preview the screen saver no problem but when i step away and let the computer go into screen saver mode the video doesn't play just the audio. Is there any way to make this work?

    thanks

    Hmmm intersting idea but I am not sure if it would work because a program would need to run (Quicktime) to play the audio/video clip. And with a program running the computer should have a pretty hard time turning on its screen saver since that is only supposed to work when the computer has been idle for a set time.

    Check the Microsoft Knowledge base it may be your best bet.

    there is a program i have that does it already, but NT based windows won't run quicktime files during screen saver mode. I think windows 98 will do it though. i will check the knowledge base though.

    thanks jay
