Editors' Review

No more static cling for your desktop; now your wallpaper won't have to simply stand still, and it can get animated and dance around.

Dreamscene Video Wallpaper launches a compact, simple-but-functional interface that's very easy to comprehend and navigate. There are no tabs or other dialog boxes to access. All its features are accessible from the one small window, which is a plus for this otherwise uninspired design. The nag screen--we must admit--is irritating, because not only does it pop up each time Dreamscene completes its playlist rotation, it occasionally slaps a "Don't Forget to Register!" message in the middle of the playing video. Despite this hard-to-miss promotional call to action, this nifty little app performed well during our tests, responding quickly to our commands. It was very easy to set up and use. Selecting existing video files from your hard drive and organizing categories to rotate the playlist style was simply a matter of a few clicks and keystrokes. We liked the inclusion of a button for visiting Dreamscene's Web site and downloading from a large number of landscape, underwater, and CGI animated videos to use as wallpaper. The breadth of the selection should please most users. Selecting the frequency for videos to change was simple, as was selecting the play mode, which we were pleased includes a Random option, which is similar to shuffle on a CD player.

The nag screen really is a drag with this app. However, the price tag isn't so scary that it will frighten away most users.

    "Poorly designed product and $20 isn't the limit"

    August 11, 2012   |   By Gueneal

    Version: DreamScene Video Wallpaper 2.50

    Pros

    Works for a year.

    Cons

    If you have to reinstall after a year for any reason at all and have not payed for the re-registration your screwed. this product will not reinstall. They say it is for "support" which is crap. Their support is crap. They rarely ever release software patches for this program and this one in particular has a very large list of "known issues" so in short buyer beware.

    Summary

    I personally recommend going the route of installing Dreamscape on your computer as it IS free and developed by Microsoft and there are plenty of tutorials on how to set it up. Also there isn't a reoccurring $20 fee every year to run the program.

    "Good, but not Great"

    July 09, 2012   |   By TheWhitiewhitie

    Version: DreamScene Video Wallpaper 2.47

    Pros

    Plays any wmv files, including movies if you have any.

    Cons

    Does NOT play avi files. NO avi files will play with this program. According to the people who makes this program, they said they are working on the issue. I sure hope so.

    Summary

    Good software if you want to play wmv files. But if you have any avi files, I would not get this because it WILL NOT play any avi files.

    "very good video wallpaper software with lots of options"

    November 10, 2010   |   By pureuser2000

    Version: DreamScene Video Wallpaper 2.23

    Pros

    this is a very good product with lots of options for video wallpaper

    Cons

    nothing, really

    Summary

    Dreamscene was only on Windows Vista Utimate, you cannot have it on Windows 7, Windows XP or other versions of Windows Vista without hacks, so normal people dont want to use hacks!
    this is a very good product with lots of options and it seems that it is faster than original Dremscene on Windows Vista Ultimate

    "Microsoft built dreamscene and for free"

    October 05, 2010   |   By boldpaste2

    Version: DreamScene Video Wallpaper 2.23

    Pros

    Does what it intends to do

    Cons

    This product is another rip off for people who do not know how to use the internet. Microsoft has developed dreamscene originally.

    Summary

    You can get dreamscene from Microsoft for free. it was originally built for vista but many people including myself built patches and installers to make the Microsoft dreamscene work on any non ultimate system. ya i do hand it to PUSH that there version lags less then dreamscene but just recently many people found ways to increase the speed of computers and run dreamscene at the same time. For example my version of dreamscene "dreamscene speed" uses the mystring script which allows you to use reserved segments of your ram.

    so in all DREAMSCENE IS ORIGINALLY BUILT BY MICROSOFT AND IS INTENDED TO BE FREE.

    "Nice product, but..."

    August 10, 2010   |   By M4RiE

    Version: DreamScene Video Wallpaper 2.23

    Pros

    I was very excited to see this product available for XP. It's desktop wallpaper features are highly appealing.

    Cons

    I have a weak used computer, a Windows XP laptop, which was unable to run this well, and crashed my DirectX. I'll be be back when I'm on a more stable system!

    Summary

    Being able to enjoy this type of desktop software on Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 is really terrific! I'll be back to try it again when I get my system more stabilized.
