[Solved] Adding Video as wallpaper

  • I want to add a video from my own computer from the add wallpapers section, how can I do?

  • @ardatr1032 Convert your video file to a .webp file, then choose it in the wallpaper section:
    b283f69b-0cfa-4386-9f38-c97aba780f2e-image.png

  • If you need to convert your video to a webp file, here's one way to do it (basically, download ffmpeg and type a simple command to convert the video file):

    Download "ffmpeg-n4.4-15-ge87e006121-win64-gpl-4.4.zip" from https://github.com/BtbN/FFmpeg-Builds/releases/tag/autobuild-2021-05-18-12-55 to your downloads folder.

    • Navigate to your downloads folder in Windows Explorer, right-click on the file, choose "extract all", set the path to ```C:\Users\yourusername\Downloads", click extract.

    • In the Downloads folder, right-click on "ffmpeg-n4.4-15-ge87e006121-win64-gpl-4.4" and rename it to "ffmpeg" just to make it shorter.

    • Open up a command prompt, type ```cd "%userprofile%\Downloads\ffmpeg\bin" and press ENTER. This will change the current directory to the bin folder.

    • Type dir and press ENTER and make sure you see ffmpeg.exe.

    • In Windows Explorer, copy your wallpaper.mp4 video file (doesn't have to be an mp4, could be webm for example) to the bin folder so that it's next to ffmpeg.exe.

    • Back in the command prompt window, type the following command:

      ffmpeg -i wallpaper.mp4 wallpaper.webp

    That will produce wallpaper.webp that you can add as a background.

    See https://gist.github.com/witmin/1edf926c2886d5c8d9b264d70baf7379 for example for some converting options if you need to tweak the conversion process.
