Using only a few lines of code, the default background for Windows Vista is scanned from left to right, using a strip one pixel wide. Each strip is repeated across the width of a single frame. The frames are then animated in sequence at 15 per second. The sound is produced by stretching the 4 second startup sound to the full length of the video (x29.5 times).
