    Set a specific file as a screensaver?
    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.

    So any Quicktime video can be displayed as a screensaver? SWEET.
