Brad Wardell's site for talking about the customization of Windows.

If you like animated backgrounds we have good news for you.  Stardock is in the process of updating its DeskScapes dream files to support MP4 (previously MPEG2) which should result in far lower CPU use and no additional codec downloading for Windows 10.

You will be able to see the updates here: https://www.wincustomize.com/explore/dream/search/Stardock+Design

Wincustomise will not let me log in using my Stardock log in. It always has in the past. Does anyone know what's wrong?

Your email or username will work.  If you are still getting an error, I need to know what that error is.

Well, just tried again. This time would have made 6 but this time it worked. Guess I must have somehow been putting the wrong info in. I'm still not sure what happened but I'm good now, Thanks for your replies.

I think that is an OOPS-I-FACT-THAT ONE or more commonly known as user error.

Of the first nine dreams, clicking on the Download button takes me to a "This site can't be reached [...] Err_Invalid_Response" page on these three dreams:

Mana Shades

Sylock Red

Dark Avatar

(Ran into it on a couple and thought I'd check the rest.)

If you are seeing something different, I need the links you are using and how you are getting there (I used search in WC to find them all).

I used the link in the OP.  Checked again just now and the 3 are working now.  Don't know, maybe a mouse was snacking on a cable somewhere along the route last night.  Thanks though.

I'll not deny that at all.
