I just made a .qt file and I want to make it my screensaver, how do I browse for a specific file instead of a folder to set as my screensaver?

Can you even make a .qt file your screensaver? I'm new to mac.

I have version 10.6.1 (snow leopard)

just drop your .qt file into this folder

System/Library/Screen Savers

Open up system preferences
Click on Desktop & Screen Saver
Select screen saver
and you're file should now be in the list.

Hope this helps

Can you label any picture as a .qt file, or do you need a specific program?

A .qt file is a QuickTime video.
