While playing dreamscene I get this error ''windows dreamscene has encountered an unrecoverable error while decoding the video'' My OS is windows 7 ultimate; I activated dreamscene using the activator and got a video 7 min and 25 sec long which I converted from mp4 to wmv using any video converter. The original resolution of the video as a mp4 was 1728 by 1080; when I converted it I got 1920 by 1080. The original videos bitrate was about 4000 kb/s the converted one was about 8000 kb/s. But the audio bitrate went from 125 kb/s to 64 kb/s. Whenever I play the video after about 5 mins it crashes with the error and I either have to go to the video and launch it again or reset it back to my default theme. I also have a 4k version of the same video which won't even play 30 seconds without crashing with the same error. I figured if I found out what's wrong with the 1080p one I would be able to fix the 4k one as well which is the version I actually want playing not the 1080p.
If the specs come in helpful:
4th gen core i5 1.6 GHz with turbo boost to 2.6 GHz
AMD radeon HD 8750M graphics
4 GB RAM
500 GB HD
oh and this is a laptop and the amd graphics are switchable and only activate when needed so it's possible the dreamscene is running on the intel hd graphics not the amd.
hopefully someone knows what to do as I've searched quite a bit and haven't found a thing which might help solve this really annoying issue.
