CNet provides a popular screensaver for Windows called 3D Realistic Fireplace Screen Saver. Although it is free to download and use, several fireplace customization options are limited unless users unlock these features for a fee. For Mac users, the Fireplace Live HD Free app provides screensaver videos of real fireplaces.
The Fireplace Live HD Free app on the Mac App Store plays eight full-screen videos of crackling fireplaces as a screensaver. Version 2.5 has positive reviews from users and is compatible with recent versions of Mac OSX, as of 2015.
The 3D Realistic Fireplace Screen Saver has a five-star rating from the CNet editors but relatively poor ratings from users, who complain about the limitations of the free version.
