About this app

Video Live Wallpaper is a blank live wallpaper that allows you to set your own video as a live wallpaper animation! Do you have that perfect home made video of your loved one that you'd love to see on your Android device's home screen? How about a music video? Or why not an entire movie? Many codecs and formats are supported. Choices are almost limitless.

You can also choose from over 120 ready-made videos from the New Official Video Catalog created specifically for Video Live Wallpaper by an EMMY™-Nominated Studio with over 25 years of Video Production excellence! Topics range from Abstract, Nature, Love, to Fire, Water and more. Videos are hosted in their own officially endorsed, collaboratively made app called Video Live Wallpaper Catalog. Download this FREE Video Catalog app at:
or hit Video source -> Application provider inside Video Live Wallpaper's settings.

Remember: you need to set up a video source to make this live wallpaper useful. If you plan to make your own videos (some resolution and codec restrictions apply if you want to make it smooth), please see the app's help and visit the app's website to learn what formats are best and to get sample videos.

One last thing: this is a live wallpaper and as such, puts no icon to your home screen or app drawer. Visit your wallpaper settings to use this live wallpaper. On most devices, the wallpaper menu can be accessed by pressing the menu button when on a home screen, or by long-touching an empty part of a home screen.

Do you have issues, requests or suggestions? Or do you just want to say hi? Please visit the website to read help and Frequently Asked Questions. And remember: this developer can not answer Play Store reviews if you ask questions so please ask questions directly by e-mailing the developer.

Edit: it is now 2021, three years since my original review. I got a fancy new phone and this app is still working great! Original: Fast and clean. Lacks the feature set of GIF live wallpaper but eats a fourth of the ram. UI is unusual. It's found in the standard live wallpaper selection screen. I had to make a custom mp4 video to get the scale, location and background color I wanted. That was a massive pain. Super worth it though for the super smooth performance. A++

Ignore all the reviews that say this "doesn't show up", as they are unwilling or unable to read instructions. Go to your wallpapers, look at the bottom of the screen, then scroll to the right and you will find Live Wallpaper waiting for you to use it. It DOES work, in fact it works very well, BUT YOU HAVE TO READ SOME INSTRUCTIONS. I now have a stunning mp4 video as my wallpaper, and it was a breeze to put it there, once I took two to three minutes to read what to do. If you can't or won't read instructions, then life can be tough. FIVE STARS because it does work, it works well, and it is annoying to see all these 1 star reviews written by clueless (deleted many uncomplimentary words) users who likely have trouble finding their fundament with both hands in a brightly lit room.

I like it. It does the two things I want: display videos from my local storage, AND run multiple videos as my live wallpaper one after another. The only thing I wish from this app is that I can choose the directory where the videos are coming from. At the moment, the app select directory the videos should be coming from.
