A wallpaper or background (also known as a desktop wallpaper, desktop background, desktop picture or desktop image on computers) is a digital image (photo, drawing etc.) used as a decorative background of a graphical user interface on the screen of a computer, smartphone or other electronic devices (Video Wallpaper).
On a computer, wallpapers are generally used on the desktop, while on a mobile phone they serve as the background for the home screen. Though most devices come with a default background image, modern devices usually allow users to manually change the background image.
Wallpaper images are usually copyrighted as many other digital images found on the Internet, and as such, most websites collecting and sharing wallpapers, as well as the users downloading from them are an example of mass copyright infringement, a phenomenon which challenges the meaning and illegality of digital piracy and the validity of current copyright legislation around the world.
Video wallpapers are small animations, typically less than 10 seconds in duration which can be set on your mobile device as a wallpaper/background. Most video wallpapers can be started by pressing on the screen. Tapping on the screen again will stop the animation.
Like any wallpaper, video wallpapers can be set on either the home screen, lock screen or both. Some wallpapers will continue to loop until you stop them. Some will play through only one time.
Is It Safe to Use Zedge Video Wallpaper
Yes, the wallpapers are safe and we take security very seriously. Wallpaper Engine supports four wallpaper types: Scenes, Videos, Web-based wallpapers and application wallpapers. The only real threat can come from application wallpapers, however, these wallpapers are very rare and we provide a big warning that cannot be missed the first time you run specific application wallpaper. Even then, we have not heard of any application-based wallpapers containing malicious code.
Like me, you might also worry about the safety of using this app. I want to suggest you in this regard to be safe and avoid sharing personal information while using Zedge. By sharing information like Full name, Contact number & address, credit card information, etc. we can create some serious problems for us only. As people, you may have met on Zedge, can be fake.
Set Video Wallpaper on Your Android’s Home Screen & Lock Screen
Android users have had access to live wallpapers since the Eclair days, but some newer apps have made this feature even more useful. Now, you have the ability to use GIFs as your wallpaper, and through the marvels of modern technology, you can even set a video as your home screen and lock screen background.
There are several apps that let you make any video into your background wallpaper, but we tried them all for you and found the best one. You won’t need to worry about the time constraints that limit live wallpapers or the quality constraints that limit GIFs. The only constraints that you need to abide by are with regards to file type: Your video must either be an MP4 or 3GP.
How To Video Wallpaper
Step 1 ====> Find a Good Video to Use
First, you will need a video to use as your wallpaper. As I mentioned earlier, this video will need to be in either the MP4 or 3GP format, but there is one more wrinkle. The video should be in portrait format (vertical), otherwise it will be heavily cropped to fill out your full home screen.
As an example, I am using clips I recorded from Zedge app to demonstrate, but really, anything goes. Once you have found a good MP4 or 3GP video in portrait format, go ahead and send it over to your phone.
Step 2 ====> Convert Your Video to the Correct Format
Even if your file is an MP4, there is still a chance it will not be compatible with the app we’ll use to turn it into a live wallpaper. Some MP4s are rendered with codecs that Android can’t recognize. If you are using a video you captured with your phone, you can skip this step. In fact, most MP4s you can download off the internet are encoded with standard codecs as well, so most users can probably skip this step.
But just in case you’re trying to use a video file that Android or the live wallpaper app won’t recognize, simply visit this site. Tap “Choose File,” then select “Files” to browse your phone’s storage.
From there, select the video you want to use, then leave the format options set as they already are mp4 and Android.
Finally, tap Convert file, then within a few moments, your browser will automatically download the converted video file.
Step 3 ====> Install Video Live Wallpaper
====> You need to install Video Live Wallpaper on your phone, which is the app we’ll be using to convert the video into a live wallpaper.
====> To do that, you can either search for Video Live Wallpaper on Google Play or use the link below to jump to it.
====> Tap on Install to download and install it, then open it up.
Step 4 ====> Choose Your Video
====> From the app’s main menu
====> Tap Gallery to load up the video you’d like to use as your wallpaper.
====> Your video will most likely appear before you in the Recent section, but there is a chance you will need to slide out the hamburger menu in the top-left corner and check in Downloads or Videos for it.
====> Once you have found the video, simply tap it to select it.
Step 5 ====> Adjust Audio Settings
====> You will need to decide what to do with the audio that goes along with your video.
====> The first setting to be aware of on this front is Play Audio.
This determines whether or not your video will play audio if the box is checked, it will play the audio.
====> The setting that reads Play video off screen determines whether or not your video will play when you are in another app, or if your phone’s screen is off.
====> By checking this box in addition to Play Audio,
====> Your phone will play your video (with sound) at all times, so only do so if you want to constantly hear your video.
Step 6 ====> Loop the Video
====> Make sure to check the Loop Video box so your video will loop back around after it ends. Otherwise, it will fade to black without replaying your video.
Step 7 ====> Set Your Video Wallpaper
When you are done tweaking your wallpaper settings
====>Tap Set Live Wallpaper
====> Your phone’s default wallpaper picker will now appear before you
====> So tap Apply to confirm your wallpaper.
This will set your video as both your lock screen and home screen wallpaper. One thing to note is that you can pause your video at anytime by double-tapping any empty space on your home screen. This is a handy feature, but it may interfere with your home screen gestures if you have any set up just a heads up.
