Are you bored of those static images on your Desktop Background? Do you feel the need to use a Video in its Place? Ok then, I will tell you how you can do it! Just do as I say and you will have a cool video playing as your Desktop wallpaper.
Let me tell you(most of you will already know) that Windows Vista Ultimate has a feature known as DreamScene which allows you to set a Video as a BackGround. But this feature is not present in any other versions of Windows Vista. As most of the people have already shifted to Vista from their old OS, I will give a detailed tutorial on how you can get started with DreamScene.
Download the DreamScene pack for Vista. It is a RAR file. Extract the RAR file in any folder and then follow the steps:
- Run “Install.bat” file with Administrator rights (i.e. Right Click on it and Click on: Run as administrator)
- Follow the steps in the command prompt
- Reboot, or Run “Reload.bat” file with normal (non-Admin) rights (i.e. just Double Click on it)
After you follow these steps Right Click on your Desktop. When the list opens up, you will find an option called “Play DreamScene”. This shows that you have installed this Vista Add-On properly.
Just remember that you can only play .WMV or .MPG files as your video Backgrounds. Now Right Click on the Video file you want to play as your Background. Select “Set as Desktop Background”. Once you do it, you cam see the same Video playing in your Desktop as the Wallpaper.
If you want to Pause this video in the Background, just Right click on the Desktop and select “Pause DreamScene”. You are done now!
Many people who still use XP miss this feature! You can use the XPScene software for Windows XP to use this feature.
