How can I find out where the pictures on the Apple TV 4th gen screen saver are coming from? Some of them I recognize, but I'm stymied by a few and I'd love to know their source.

  • Which screensaver are you using? There are a few of them... – LH16 Dec 5 '16 at 9:48
  • Whatever the default is? I didn't know there were others! – Chris R Dec 5 '16 at 17:04
  • Is it the time lapse of different cities? – LH16 Dec 5 '16 at 17:40
  • That's the one. – Chris R Dec 6 '16 at 11:11

The fourth generation Apple TV screen saver is composed of QuickTime movie files. You can see the JSON file that Apple TV loads them from at the following URL.

There are versions of the screen saver for Mac and Windows, not developed by Apple, which you can download at the below links.
