Set your favourite video as Wallpaper

Set your favourite video as Wallpaper

This is a pretty simple tweak using which you can set any video as your desktop wallpaper.

Just follow the steps given below:

1.Download VLC Media Player and install it.

2.Run VLC media player, go to Settings->preferences->Interface->Main interfaces, then click on wxWidgets. Remove the tick on "Taskbar" and put a tick on "Systray icon".

3.Now go to Video->Output Modules->DirectX. On the bottom right put a tick on advanced options check box. You will now see some options. Put a tick on "Enable Wallpaper Mode".

4.Now,select playlist and put a check or tick on "Repeat current item".

5.Press the Save button. Now close the Vlc player and run it again(to save the settings permanently).

6.Now play any video you would like to set as Wallpaper. Right click on the video and click on "Wallpaper". The video would be set as your wallpaper!!!!

Since you have checked the option "repeat current item ", the selected video will play on continuously. It will start again when finished. VLC player will remain in your system tray.If you wish to remove the wallpaper simply close the player and you will get back your original wallpaper.

If you have any query please feel free to drop a comment.

Ya,thats true.
But it plays most of the files except 3gp(i think the latest version play that also).And I think you will not set a 3gp (low resolution) file as your wallapaper.
Anyways thanks for the info..Keep those tricks coming out of your mind..

Hi LORD

I downloaded BS PLAYER but am unable to find any setting as 'set video as wallpaper' in preference.

It would be great if you will help me in finding the option. Thanks in advance.
