window live photo gallery, screensaver timer

hi, wondering is there any way to set the timer/settings for live photo gallery?

just found out it can be set as screensaver, but for video, is around 10 seconds only,

anyone found some ways to extend it?

This was the procedure I used and the video ran full length. Maybe your video is only 10sec long.

Open Live Essentials Photo Gallery
Click on File
Click on > Screen Saver Settings (This will open the Screen Saver Settings)
Browse to your folder with the video and open it (OK)
In the Use this theme list box, select Album
Then do Save
Now run Preview and see whether it works
