Convert a material to a sky preset

Convert a material to a sky preset

(OP)
Hi guys I'm trying to create a cosmic sky for interstellar scenes, and I'd really like to use the "Cosmics" material from the "Clouds" menu in the material editor. I found a really good tutorial for create still scenes, but I'd like to take the next step and create some animations. I tried to texture a sphere with this material and run the camera/objects around inside, but at a certain area the material appears stretched, which really looks bad. Any ideas how I could make this material a super simple sky for animations? Here's the tutorial which demonstrates the use of this material for still scenes:
