Hi Ronan ...

You can do that stuff..Windows Vista brings us Windows Dreamscene,which pulls us out of the idea that desktop background can only be pictures. Never had a OS made our computer so beautiful. However,Windows Dreamscene is not so good because it only support WMV and MPEG.As a result, if there is a RMVB or AVI video, we need to convert it into WMV or MPEG. What a pity?

Now we can set videos of any format as your desktop background, for i have found a way to make it. The first thing that you need to do is to download K-lite codec pack and install it.

Then hit "orgnize" to open file options.Uncheck "hide extensions for known file types".

Now select a video to your taste and rename its extension name to WMV or MPEG. You make it.

That would be great Allen, but he doesn't own ultimate edition. :D

Ronan, at this point 'that well known search engine' should be a real help. ;)

Obviously you didn't quite get the gist of my message, check your PMs ;)

Also, I would point out that you have been able to do this in Linux for a long time. They have already gone one further aswell by allowing videos to be recoded into binary so that it takes almost no CPU to have an animated background.
