You need to create a .saver file, which is what the following app will help you do. Scroll to the end of this article to see the steps with screenshots. The app is compatibility with: macOS 10.12 or later, 64-bit processor.

Please note, we are not the developers, just users.

Step 1. Install iSaver. Price $2.99 😞 (Click here for the Product Hunt Link).

Step 2. Run the App.

Step 3. Download the MP4 version of the video you would like to use.

Ex: The best of Silicon Valley Season 1–5.

Step 4. Click on preview options.

Step 5. Click on ‘Select Video File’ and select the MP4 file.

Step 6. Click on ‘Video Mute’ (Not required, but recommended).

Step 7. Click on ‘Install iSaver’ and do not change the location of the file!

Step 8. Click ‘Save’, your ‘Desktop & Screen Saver’ system preferences will now open. If it did not open, you can now open it manually.

Step 9. Go to the screen saver tab, and scroll all the way down.

Step 10. You should now see one called ‘iSaver’. Click on it, and that’s it you are all set. 😎
