Update: Click here for DreamScene HD videos and suff: Windows Vista DreamScene Roundup
Mod Edit

Just downloaded it, it seems to only play .mpg files. I had a few movies and simply changed the .avi filename to .mpg and it plays.

Rocky Horror Picture Show is my background :D

It seems the way they've done it, is when you maximize a window, the video stops playing. When the windows are just small, or minimized, it plays the video. I suppose this keeps the cpu and graphics card from doing too much all the time? Just thought I'd mention that.

Microsoft has released the 'Dreamscene' Ultimate Extra to the Windows Vista Ultimate edition users. :D
To download Dreamscene, click the Windows Update or Ultimate Extras shortcut on your start menu, and click the 'Check for new updates' link.

When you install this Windows Ultimate Extra, you can select a video for your desktop background in the same way that you select a stationary picture, and you can choose new positioning options for static and moving backgrounds.

I'm sure that someone will soon come up with a way to use Dreamscene in Vista Home Premium. ;)

Actually, it only included one video, and it's like 23mb. I just took a screen of it for you guys to see.

It looks just looks like regular vista wallpaper, except the top half moves a little bit.

Also, as Burned Phoenix said, you can make .mpg files your background just like pictures. When you right click a mpg, there is an option to set it as the background. I found that neat and thought I'd mention it.

Check the other other options there are 3 more videos and the dream is under downloads I believe somewhere in the windows folder (do not remember now) but they are mum files .. :whistle:

Just an FYI DreamScene isn't compatible with Dual Video Card Set-ups in which the video cards arent the same... IE im running (non-Crossfire) X1800 and X1900 Cards, i must disable the X1800 inorder for the Dreamscene to function.

You guys realize that VLC Media Player has an inbuilt function to play movies and other stuff on your desktop and its free! Im not sure if it works in Vista, but it looks good on XP!

Wait a sec. Doesn't it use GPU instead of the CPU?

Edit: Vista Dreamscene CPU Usage Issue <_<
