Post install message should direct you:

>>> You must edit ~/.xscreensaver to add support for this screensaver
    Find the line "programs:" and simply add the following below it:
    "ATV4-2k" atv4-2k \\n\\
    "ATV4-4k" atv4-4k \\n\\

How is this configuration used? How do I enable this? I see the file /usr/lib/xscreensaver/atv4-4k, but there is no obvious way to make xscreensaver use it.

Builds fine for me... how are you building? The videos are optional and not named as your error message shows. Guessing you're using some AUR "helper" :p If so, try with makepkg -srci

Hello) Still having problems with it not killing mpv after moving mouse, unlocking. Multiple instances remain in htop and cause high CPU + battery drain. Changed kill to kill -9 in the script, no change.

For Cinnamon users and cinnamon integration, you must use this repository : https://github.com/japamax/xscreensaver-aerial

Haven't seen that before...?

Frequently fails to kill mpv process. Any advice?

snuo - I don't see an ill-effect of adding the --panscan=1.0 on my 16:9 monitor so I believe it's safe to add this.

Thank you for making this port! BTW, for folks without 16:9 screens who want the videos to fill the screen without letterboxing: adding --panscan=1.0 to the mpv parameters (lines 83 & 87) makes it scale to fill the whole screen. Line after change: mpv --really-quiet --no-audio --fs --no-stop-screensaver --wid="$XSCREENSAVER_WINDOW" --panscan=1.0 "$APPLEURL/$useit" & (Much like this report, I was getting letterboxing on the latest revision; my screen is 16:10 13" MBA - https://github.com/graysky2/xscreensaver-aerial/issues/2
