Is DeskScapes free?
DeskScapes is telling me I don't have a video codec. What does that mean?
Windows 8 no longer includes a MPEG2 video decoder by default(most Windows 7 installs do include this). We recommend video dreams be encoded as .AVI or .WMV files to be compatible with Windows 7 and 8. MPEG4 dreams in AVI format (NOT MPEG 4 part 10/h.264) should work fine as well.
