Help supply our windowless office with a little dose of nature

What images or video should we play on our office TV as a pleasant background? Basically, we want a fake window to a nicer world.

Our student office recently acquired a 55" wall-mounted LED display for use in occasional presentations, but we'd like to run something on it the rest of the time. We considered a slideshow of research images, which will probably be going some of the time (when we have visitors), but it would be nice to have something less repetitive/more relaxing going the rest of the time. We've considered the Planet Earth DVDs (gorgeous, but distracting, even when muted), as well as live webcam feeds (no high-quality streams seem to be available). The TV currently runs off of either the internet, a connection to a laptop, or a flash drive, but we could think about getting a specific media player if it's worth it. We'd ideally like a couple of long videos of a camera sitting mostly or completely still in the woods or on a beach, either with ambient sound or none (it can be muted if there's an undesirable soundtrack). HD is obviously preferred, but not completely necessary.
Any suggestions for beautiful media that isn't a nature scene are welcome as well.
