Windows 7: Video desktop wallpaper ? (where did it go?)

Video desktop wallpaper ? (where did it go?)

I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Previously I had Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit and that had some funky video wallpaper (like burning cauldron, etc). I don't see any video wallpaper now for my Win7, so where the heck did that feature go? I would have thought Win7 would have been at least as good or better in terms of the wallpaper. Both versions were ultimate and 64 bit, so in a sense I feel cheated, that microsoft downgraded my features! My PC has not changed whatsover (same graphics card, same monitor, same mobo). Any way to get back that video wallpaper background-- or should I assume it as a ploy by microsoft to try and get me to shell out cash to buy that feature that i had for free before?

Could you start your own thread so you can get the help you deserve? it gets confusing to have more than one problem per thread



Thanks

Hello newbie87.


Ken makes a very good point; I haven't done this so I'm not really the one to answer your question; you can start a new thread by clicking the yellow "new thread" button at the top of the link below.
