Windows 7: How do I use DreamScene without Aero?

How do I use DreamScene without Aero?

I don't really like the way Aero slows down my computer so much, but I'd like to be able to use DreamScenes (Yes, I know DreamScenes slow it down too, but at least it only does it when I see the desktop). I downloaded a fix that enables DreamScene on Windows 7, but it still needs Aero to function. Is there a way to disable the Aero requirement?

Have you tried running Aero without Transparency enabled, as this slows down areo a lot.

Dreamscene requires Aero to work. You might try VLC with Desktop Wallpaper Mode

Set a Video as Your Desktop Wallpaper with VLC

Ironically, it will disable Aero if it is on

Yeah, I've heard of that and tried it, but it's more resource-intensive than even Aero. is there something else?

Not that I am aware of. You are trying to do a very resource intensive thing

Any consensus on how to get DreamScene running in Windows 7? The usual assortment of 'hacks' isn't what I mean, a little regedit perhaps? Codec install..? It's the only remnant of Vista I'd like to see in W7. ;)
