INSTRUCTIONS/DOWNLOAD BELOW:

Got a few PMs about this tonight so here are a few of the higher resolution DreamScenes I was able to find. Sadly most out there are much lower res.

In order from simple to overly animated:
Prowler, Black Death, Aqua Ocean Planktonic, 3DFiction #22 (not free), Seven Lights, Hack the Gibson, Crysis (one of dozens).

Wait, what is this DreamScene crap?
An old Vista add-on that allowed .wmv and .mpg files to function as wallpaper. Through a hacked installer, it's been available for Windows 7 for a while. Just google "DreamScapes Windows 7" or try this link HERE: http://www.windows7start.com/tweaks/programs/82-activate-dreamscenes-in-windows-7

TROUBLESHOOTING:
***BE SURE TO INSTALL AS AN ADMINISTRATOR***
***IF THAT DOESN'T WORK TRY THIS*** (thanks to Mory95)

POSSIBLE FIX IF YOUR DESKTOP FONTS LOOK STRANGE:
1: Set one of your videos as a desktop background.
2: In Windows Explorer set all hidden files to viewable.
3: Browse to "C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows DreamScene"
4: Unhide the file "Img001.jpg"
5: Edit both the files (Paint) "DreamScene.jpg" and "Img001.jpg" and set to a solid black colour but keep dimensions to match your monitors native resolution and save.
6: Set both files and "Read-Only"
7: Right click on Desktop - Personalize - Set Desktop Background then select BOTH of the files shown, Save and Exit.
8: You should now hopefully have Dreamscenes working with no invisible text bug even when selecting new dreamscenes and between restarts.

DISCLAIMER:
Yes it's over the top and will eat processing power (about 10%) but if you have a ton to spare and want to whore out your desktop this is a decent, free option. And yes, it auto-pauses when you enter a full screen application/game. fwiw I will probably never really use it but some may find use.
