Set Video as Live Wallpaper – The main difference between a classic wallpaper and a video wallpaper is very clear – the first is static, while the latter is interactive.
Live wallpapers are becoming increasingly popular, especially on phones with reliable batteries where performance isn’t affected too much.
Many users choose from the selection of live wallpapers already featured on their Android devices, or perhaps they use the Samsung store or the Google Play store.
Others may choose to use popular funny GIFs. But if you really want to personalize your phone, using an actual video for your wallpaper is an awesome idea.
Downloaded videos work fine for this, and you can also make use of your own recordings.
How To Set Video as Live Wallpaper
Here’s how you can do this on any Android device that supports live wallpapers. Personalizing your phone only takes an app, some time, creativity, and good taste.
Video Live Wallpaper Pro
Video Live Wallpaper Pro is a free app that you can download from the Google Play store. After you install it on your smartphone or tablet, you can use it to set various videos as live wallpapers.
- Launch the app
- Tap Gallery
- Locate desired folder
- Tap video
- Tap Set Live Wallpaper (the first option on the list)
Note that you can also choose to loop the video, keep the aspect ratio, play it off-screen, and play or mute its audio.
After you set a video as live wallpaper
After you set a video as live wallpaper, it will appear on all home-screens. This will also set the video as your lock screen wallpaper. Of course, this works only if the wallpaper option is enabled in the lock screen settings menu.
If you want to pause the video for any reason, you can do so by double tapping the home screen on an empty space.
There are a few things that you should note about the default configuration. By default, the videos will be muted and looped.
It’s probably best to leave the settings unchanged because hearing the same track over and over again might get annoying. Even if you enjoy it for some reason, think of your family and your coworkers.
As for the loop feature, this makes the device repeat the video once it’s over. Whether you have a 5 second or 15 minute video, the end result is the same.
The transition is smooth, so you can opt for so-called infinite loop videos to great effect.
You can personalize your wallpaper further by editing the video before you set it as a wallpaper. Use any free video editing app or software on your PC to make these changes.
Add fade in and fade out effects to the video to make it seem more naturally repetitive instead of settling for a GIF-like vibe.
Users may encounter compatibility issues if the videos are not in the right format. If you want to be able to use a video as a live wallpaper on Android devices, you have to make sure that the video is an .mp4 format.
