DreamScene comes with Windows Vista Ultimate which allows users to play videos are background wallpapers. However when it comes to Windows 7, DreamScene has been replaced with Desktop Slideshow feature which produces slideshow background wallpapers, but does not support videos. There has been hacks on how to enable DreamScene on Windows 7 and this is probably the easiest method ever as it simply requires only 1 click. Before using DreamScene, you must have Aero enabled and also it can only support WMV and MPG as wallpaper background.
Run the portable DreamScene activator and click Enable DreamScene. The tool will first copy DreamScene.dll to System32 folder in Windows and DreamScene.dll.mui to Windows\System32\en-US. Then it will add the required registry keys & values and restart explorer. After the explorer has restarted, the user will be able to use DreamScene.
To set a wmv or mpg video as wallpaper background, simply right click on the file and select “Set as Desktop Background”. The video will instantly being played and looped at desktop. You can pause the video by right clicking on desktop and select Pause DreamScene. DreamScene might not be of much to end users but is certainly useful for demos. To disable or uninstall DreamScene from Windows 7, run the activator tool and select Disable DreamScene.
