Hi, my name is Thierry,

This is my problem. I want to program a screensaver who executes an AVI File (3D) and not the current metafile or BMP. Is it possible with Delphi 2.0

Hi,
I think it is posibble. In normal screen saver code you just need to play avi on your main form. Drop your email address and I'll send you the source of a screen saver from some one else.

Hi,
take a look at
http://www.experts-exchange.com/topics/comp/lang/delphi/Q.10053332
wich contains a screen saver framework that uses a TForm descendant as a display background. You can put anything you need onto it. Also, a sample screen saver with configuration dialog is included.
