Aerial screensaver for xscreensaver

I thought the Apple TV4 "aerial" screensaver was pretty cool so I made one for xscreensaver that uses their videos.  Feedback is appreciated.

AUR package: xscreensaver-aerial
Upstream: on github

Notes -
* There are 97 videos totally.
* The default behavior is to stream them (no local storage required), but you can optionally pre-download them if you wish using either: aerial-2k-videos for 2k versions or aerial-4k-videos for 4k versions.
* These get installed to /opt/ATV4 so be sure you have space there or bind mount that to another location.
* 2k videos require approx 16.3 GiB.
* 4k videos require approx 32.2 GiB.

Re: Aerial screensaver for xscreensaver

Apple added 13 new videos (from the ISS) which are supported in version 1.08.  Please report any issues in the thread.

When I have time, I will release a version that uses the 4k content.
EDIT: OK... version 1.09 supports 4k content.
