The Best Insomnia Cure?

This video made by my favorite relaxation video company is the best insomnia cure I have ever seen. If you need help getting to sleep at night, press play, select the best quality from the settings icon, then press the fullscreen button.

If using a laptop or TV you can set a timer for it to turn off after the 30 minutes. If you are using a large screen smartphone or tablet (I have done both of these- the tablet was best), they should close by themselves when the video ends.

Amazing Paradise Beach Videos

Check out some awesome new paradise beach videos we found at Uscenes




These are part of Uscenes' new Tropical Collection of full HD videos for your TV sets. They also come with screen saver apps for your laptops and PCs. Great value, especially if you buy their whole collection for lifetime access. These are an ideal alternative to fireplace videos in summer.

Best Fireplace Videos for 2013

Winter is well and truly upon us, which means it is the perfect time to use fireplace videos on your computer monitors and television screens. My selection below are all filmed in high definition and look like they were released in 2013.

I have been using these on my screens recently and just like last year, I will probably continue using them through to spring. Some you can just stream from Youtube but it is worth buying them as you will get the proper file as well as no watermarks on the videos.

If you want a free fireplace video which you don't need to pay for then the video below is ideal. This one lasts 5 hours and it is uploaded to Youtube. So you can just let it play all day.

 

The above video is good because of the length, but the flames are very "up and down". They start off very aggressive, then die out to barely any flames. If you don't have the ability to loop a video, such as on a media player, then the above is fine.

I have been watching the fireplace videos from http://www.uscenes.com/download/fireplace-screensavers/ much more because they are just 20 minute clips which are very consistent in terms of flames. This means they loop very well and there are no "lulls" in the fire. These aren't free but the quality is great (1080p full HD).

The videos also come with a screensaver which is very handy for computer screens- they start playing when you stop using your PC or laptop. Here are a couple of the ones I have been watching most from that site (all their videos are on Youtube with some having the full 20 minute video there).

This is probably my pick for best fireplace video of 2013. The shot is very clear:



This one is a close up shot which is good for smaller screens (quite stylishly shot).


The black sides on this one make it feel more cosy, nice for late at night. I also use this one as my desktop background on my PC as my icons fit in the black areas. Use VLC player to set a video as your desktop background.

How About a Nice Aquarium Screensaver

I've not posted for a while because the weather has been great this summer. When it is hot I just don't feel like watching a fireplace video or screensaver. Instead I have been checking out aquariums which really suit the warmer weather.

My favorite aquarium screensaver video is the one below. It is a marine aquarium with actual living corals inside. Looks just like the ocean when I have been diving in Mexico. There are some others on Youtube too but this is a really high quality one. I have been using it as a TV screensaver. Check it out:

Virtual Fireplace Video

A virtual fireplace video is a download that can be played on any computer or TV screen. These files come in HD (high definition) quality which means they are filmed in a very high resolution. They are basically recordings of a real fireplace. They are excellent for making a room feel cozy in the winter.

There is no need to go looking for a fireplace DVD or Blu-ray disc. A download will be cheaper and easier to transport. You can send it to a friend or your other electronic devices instantly. Coming soon we will be offering a top quality fireplace video download that would make an ideal Christmas present. It will only cost $5 to buy.

Friends and family will be amazed as you turn your flat screen TV into a roaring virtual log fire. The life like flames and sound will add a great, warm ambience to any room. This is a great way to make good use of your Television or computer screen when not in use. It is the ultimate way to relax at Xmas without spending the earth on a real fireplace.
