The video shows what investigators found as they went through the home last January - dogs living in filthy conditions in the basement and crammed into cages in the attic.
Several dead dogs were found wrapped in plastic in a freezer.
Officers rescued more than 150 dogs.
Jason and Serena Larsen are charged with six counts each of first-degree animal cruelty.
Their lawyers had argued that the video should not be released because it would jeopardize the Larsens' chances of getting a fair trial. A judge disagreed.
The trial is set to begin on July 31.
