General DreamScene Questions
How do I set my desktop background to a DreamScene video?Preliminary steps:
Right-click on your desktop. Click 'Personalize'. Next, click on 'Desktop Background'. From the drop-down menu click 'Windows DreamScene Content' or click the Browse button and locate the video file you want to use as your background.
Note: If you don't have a widescreen monitor you may also want to select the 'Crop to fit screen' option at the bottom of the Desktop Background window. This will ensure the wide screen picture is not distorted from its original aspect ratio.
How do I get rid of the black bars on the top and bottom of my monitor?
All of the content on this site is in wide screen format. If you don't have a wide screen display, just select the 'Crop to fit
screen' option when choosing your desktop background.
Once this option is selected the video will zoom in but still use its original aspect ratio. Consequently, the video clip will
fill your whole screen and you won't see the black bars on the top and
Basic BitTorrent Questions:
What is BitTorrent?
BitTorrent is a way to transfer files. It is similar to a peer-to-peer network (but it IS legal).
What is a BitTorrent Client?
You need to have a Client (I recommend uTorrent) installed on your computer to download files on the BitTorrent network. Kinda like you need a web browser to surf the 'net.
What is a .torrent file?
First, a .torrent file does not contain the files you are trying to download. A .torrent file merely provides a 'link' to a list of people who have the files you want to download.
What do I do once I've downloaded the .torrent file?
You open the .torrent file in your BitTorrent Client. Your client will grab the list of people who have the files you want to download, and start to download the files from those people.
Is BitTorrent safe?
Hmm. That question is similar to asking 'Is the Internet safe?' I guess the answer is: it depends. The Internet is somewhat safe. I.e. You can get viruses from sketchy websites but most sites do not have viruses. In the same way, you can get viruses from downloads but most BitTorrent downloads don't have viruses. Before downloading anything, I would make sure you trust the publisher of the torrent.
What if I still can't get my BitTorrent Client to download the DreamScene Videos? A.k.a. I need more help!
Note: Windows DreamScene is a free update but only available to Windows Vista Ultimate users.
