Hi!

When you apply the wallpaper the screen turns black? The picture you are applying is a .jpeg file or a .gif file?

If your talking about your wallpaper coming up as blank, try chaining the theme, it should solve that issue. Do clarify if this is not the case.

Enable Dreamscene


Windows Vista Ultimate has a great feature of putting video as your desktop background. A lot of windows XP and windows Vista (non ultimate) user wanted to do the same. Here is how it can be done using a free and popular software. VLC player.

To set and play a video as wallpaper in Windows XP, Windows Vista Home Premium, Home Basic, Business, Enterprise and Starter edition:
  1. Download and install VLC Player for Windows.
  2. Run VLC Media Player, go to Settings -> Preferences, expand Interface and click on wxWidgets. In the bottom right corner of “wxWidgets interface module” window, click on “Advanced options” to show advanced settings. Then uncheck the Taskbar check box in order to remove VLC Player title from the taskbar while the program is running. Check Systray icon if you want to enable Systray (system tray or notification area) icon instead.
  3. Next, expand Video -> Output Modules and then select Direct X. In bottom right corner of DirectX Video Output window, check the Advanced Options check box in order to see all the settings available. directx-video-output.jpg
  4. Check and tick the “Enable wallpaper mode” check box.
  5. Then, select Playlist and then check or tick the Repeat current item checkbox.
  6. Press “Save” button when done.
  7. Open and play any video that you would like to set as motion wallpaper in VLC Media Player.
  8. If the video hasn’t yet been set as desktop background, right click on the video and click on “Wallpaper”.
  9. The video or movie will be set as if it’s DreamScene motion desktop background wallpaper.
If you do not configure VLC Player to repeatedly play current media in loop, you can still do so after playing the video. Simply click on View then select Playlist. Highlight the video media content that is playing and click on Repeat One or Repeat All button as shown below to loop the video for non-stop video wallpaper.

Note that the video must be encoded in a video format supported by VLC Player such as MPEG, AVI, MP4, WMV, FLV (Flash Video) and etc. Else you will need to convert the video clip to the supported format.

Vista Ultimate 64 bit dreamscene shows black screen....


Hey there,

could i ask to see if you have upgraded to the Vista SP1? and make sure you have the correct drivers for your graphics card...ESPECIALLY if its Nvidia, they are known for there buggy work with vista, so check for updates. I dont usually find updates appealing or neccessary but in Nvidia's case, that rule is highly disregarded!

Good luck and tell me whats up after that, ill do some checking for ya!
