I wanted to use video as my screen saver. I followed the steps from here. I did all as mentioned but xscreensaver is showing black(blank) output. What should I do?

Make a backup from your $HOME/.xscreensaver

I only tested it with mpv videoplayer.

Add

"Movies"  mpv --really-quiet --no-audio --fs            \
                                  --loop=inf --no-stop-screensaver            \
                                  --shuffle --wid=$XSCREENSAVER_WINDOW        \

                                 $HOME/path/to your/video      \n\

Start

xscreensaver-demo 

And choose Movies
