Description:

Microsoft did away with DreamScene almost as soon as they released it. No doubt, because it's such a resource hog and since they were trying to engage the Netbook market, they wanted to pare down their Operating System, not make it more intense. So, Vista was the beginning and end of DreamScene, or so you thought. With a quick download, this program will install the necessary components and reactivate DreamScene for Windows 7 users. Now, the Background dialog window won't recognize movie files the way it used to, yet. However, if you right-click on a suitable video file from Explorer to bring up the Properties window, you can set it as the Desktop Background and of course, from the Desktop you can pause and play DreamScene videos. Personally, I loved DreamScene. I've got a penchant for desktop customizations and attempting to fully utilize the imaging capabilities of a desktop environment, so this was one feature I was glad to be able to reactivate.
