Windows 7: Windows Live Photo Gallery Screensaver Video problem

Windows Live Photo Gallery Screensaver Video problem

I am having issues getting my wlpg screensaver to play video files. If I select a folder (ex: C:\123) & have just one wmv file in there, select the style as album, then, when my screensaver starts it shows a picture of the video and then a video style thumbnail icon.

It will not play any videos at all.

The wmv's play in wlpg themselves and play in windows media without any issues.

Anyone got any thoughts on this one?

Many Thanks

My guess is that the WLPhotoG is designed to play a slide show consisting of image files such as .tiff, .jpg, .png, .bmp etc and not video files.
