DreamScene Activator is a freeware from door2windows that allows you to activate DreamScene in all editions of Windows 7 & Vista. This freeware is the only freeware on the net that has the desktop text bug fixed.

DreamScene is a feature that allows users to set any video in WMV/MPG format as the desktop wallpaper. This feature was only included in Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.

How to use:

  1. Run the tool as administrator.

  2. Click the slider. Wait until it says ON.

  3. Right-Click on any video in WMV/MPG format and select Set as DreamScene.
If you run this app for the first time then restart your PC. Now the video that you selected will be set as the desktop wallpaper.

You can find nice DreamScenes here.

Any chance for a windows 8.1 version?
Kishan-Bagaria Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2014
The current method isn't working with Windows 8, didn't investigate why. If a tutorial for W8 crops up anywhere, I'll make an app.

Alright cool. There is a program for it;…
But it's not great, very laggy and the desktop icons get messed up.

That's not DreamScene. It's some app someone made which changes the wallpaper constantly to frames of the video which explains why it isn't stable. DreamScene was developed by Microsoft for Windows Vista.

You can even try this:…

I've actually tried that but I couldn't get it to work for some reason. It would never apply to my desktop and I honestly have no idea why.

Do you have any opinion on Deskscape 8 by Stardock?…

Thanks for the info and help ^^.

Stardock is a nice company, I think Deskscape should satisfy your needs.
