DreamScene constantly gives errors. RRS feed

  • Question

  • With Windows Vista Ultimate, DreamScene worked fine for a while, but lately I've been experiencing problems where DreamScene would stop working (Sometimes with explorer.exe crashing, sometimes without) and give an error saying "DreamScene encountered a problem decoding the video".

    Turning it off (choosing a static background) and then back on works for a while, but it's usually just a matter of minutes before it happens again.

    I doubt very much it's a codec issue, but willing to entertain that notion I tried reinstalling video codecs which didn't help much.

    Any ideas what could be the cause, how to fix/workaround, and/or how to further diagnose the problem?

    Thank you in advance :-)
