There is probably some downloadable software on the internet that does that, but watch out: 90% of it will contain spyware.

there was a screensaver program that I use to use that does it. I think it was called screensaver xp.

Thinking outside the box......you could just create a simple html page and embed a video clip and then set the html page as the background. I used to set html pages as my background for various other tricks. As far as a a slide show you could use the several free "myspace" slide shows to put on this html page you create.
