Hi Guys,

I'm developing a MFC application. How do we set video (mp4, AVI ect..) as a wallpaper behind the desktop icons?

I'm using VS 2008 and Win 7

Thank you,
Anam G

Haven't heard of anything like that is possible. Can you have video as wallpaper in Windows?

Thanks for the reply,

I want the video to be play on desktop behind the icon on Windows 7. I saw Microsoft provide Dreamscenes but it does not work with Window 7.

Thanks,

Dreamscenes will work, but you have to run it in compatibility mode as XP. To do this go to C:/Program Files/Dreamscenes find the application and right-click on it, select properties, the compatibility, run as Windows XP Service Pack 3. Done.
