What is Dream Scene?

Microsoft introduced a function called DreamScene in Windows Vista. It allows setting video wallpaper in .wmv or .mpeg format as a desktop background.

In Windows 7 you can have changing wallpapers. The application DreamScene does the same thing, where this option is not available.

After downloading the program, it is necessary to run the file with administrative privileges. Then a new option “Set as Desktop Background” will appear in the Video File Context Menu. You can see how it works.

It works fine in Windows 7. But however it fails in Windows 8, at least in developers preview version. If download it and install with administrative privilege, then an icon will be created on the desktop screen.
