Windows DreamScene is currently available only as a preview version for Vista Ultimate users, but many of you have chosen to install it. In recognition of your interest, Microsoft's DreamScene team accelerated their schedule to release a Content Pack that contains four video backgrounds, which are now available on Windows Update.

The four videos are:
  • A field of thistle, with a bee gathering pollen
  • The rushing water of a forest stream
  • A streetlamp reflected in a puddle, with softly falling rain
  • Orange wisps flowing in a computer-generated scene
Microsoft plans to release additional content sometime after the final version of Windows DreamScene is released. For now, enjoy these four videos, plus the “aurora” content that was installed with the preview version. Plus, don’t forget you can use your own WMV and MPEG videos!

Update: Here are the videos from Microsoft for those who can't download from Windows Update:
:bulletgreen: Thistle
:bulletgreen: Jungle Stream
:bulletgreen: Rain Puddle
:bulletgreen: Orange Wisp

Is anyone else having problems with the new Pack? I get in the background options and it has the new dreamscene content, but I click on them and it just turns my background black and doesn't play them, it will play the videos I downloaded myself!!!!!!!!!!!! kind of odd

@adjika
Start Manu -> All Programs -> Windows Update -> View available Extras
Select Windows DreamScene Content Pack and click on Install

@owensdus
Do you have the problems with the new videos only?

I was able to download the content, but just unable to use it. the videos will even play with WMP but just not as my background. I have other videos that I use and they work fine just not the extra ones that Microsoft provide.

May be because those are HD videos and your PC isn't capable of using them as desktop background.

I am able to use HD, that is what I am using currently. But thanks, I just dont understand why it will play the ones I have downloaded myself but not the ones Microsoft provided for me.
