ISS UStream Screensaver
« on: 12/21/2015 11:27 PM »
Hate the Windows screen saver options? Why not livestream the ISS!

Grab "HTML Screen Saver" from http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/djmclean/htmlscreensaver.html

In the settings add in http://www.ustream.tv/embed/9408562?v=3&wmode=direct&volume=0&autoplay=true (take out the "mute=true&" if you want it to play audio.)

If you have a two-monitor setup, use this for the second screen and watch HDEV!

Three monitors? Add NASATV:

Minor correct... "Volume=0" replaces "Mute=true"

Crashed on my Win10 x64 box. But very cool idea anyway!

Really? That's exactly what I'm on. Where did it crash?

If I go to the screensaver settings app, and change it from "Nothing" to "HTML Screensaver", it will crash right away, with an Application Error in KernelBase something or other.

Strange. Drop a note on their FB page - they've been responsive to me.

I just installed this on my backup laptop. 

Still a great screensaver.

Edited for new URL for the program. Works on Win10.
