Video as screensaver

Hey guys,

I was wondering how I could make it so a video is my screensaver, how from a folder video files are cycled and displayed as my screensaver. Is this possible? Thanks!

Just for the fun of it - you can also have a video as screensaver. Go to Windows Live Photo Gallery > File > Screensaver settings and make the settings as in the picture. The video must be in .wmv format and be in a folder.
