If you are lucky enough to own Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate edition then you'll like one of the funky features in it... the ability to have a moving background. This though is nothing new as there is a way anyone on a Windows computer can have a moving background. This small tutorial shows you how.

Step 1.
Find a video you want to be looped on your desktop background and move it to your C: ("C Drive").

Step 2.
Now open NOTEPAD (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Notepad) and copy this information into it.

<style type="text/css">
html,body {

<body bgcolor="#000000">

<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" src="C:Video.avi" name="mediaplayer" width="100%" height="100%" showcontrols="0" showstatusbar="0" showdisplay="0" autostart="1" loop="1"></embed>

Note: Change the "Video.avi" to the exact filename of the video you want to use.
Then save the file as a HTML page. (File -> Save -> [Change Save Type As to All Files] -> Filename: background.html)

Step 3.
Right click your desktop and goto Properties, then to the Desktop tab and click the "Browse..." button and locate your "background.html" file. Click open and then apply and hey presto! Check out your background!
