How to Make a Video Desktop Background

Desktop backgrounds that just sit still are nice to look at, of course, but desktop backgrounds that just sit still for long periods of time can get boring after a point. What if we told you that you can make any video background instead of boring backgrounds ?

No matter what platform you’re on, there’s more than one way to do this. You just have to choose the one that suits you and follow the steps to be followed in order.

In this article, we’ve compiled three ways to set a video as a desktop background on Windows 10 , macOS , Linux and Chrome OS .

Setting Video Background on Windows with PUSH Video Wallpaper

PUSH Video Wallpaper , which allows you to set a video as a desktop background , is very easy to use.

You can download PUSH Video Wallpaper by entering the official website . When you download it, run the .exe file to install it and launch the application. PUSH Video Wallpaper has 4 different video options: video, gif, YouTube live broadcast video and YouTube video. When you log into the application for the first time, there is a sample video in each option.

To set the desired video as the background:

  • First , open the PUSH Video Wallpaper application.
  • Click the “+” button from the pop-up window and then select a video to add a moving background.
  • The selected video will be automatically set as the desktop background.

In addition, you can fast forward, mute, pause, delete or add new video from the toolbar at the bottom of the application.

Note: The background you set will also disappear after you close the app.

Setting the Video You Want as Background with VLC

Another way to create desktop background video is with VLC media player . This method will work on Windows, macOS, Linux, even ChromeOS, variants of BSD, and Solaris.

To set the desired video as the background:

  • Open Tools > Preferences > Videos and select “Show Settings” at the bottom as “All” .
  • In the window that opens , select “DirectX” from the “Output modules” section .
  • After selecting DirectX , save the operations and select the video you want to use.
  • After selecting the video, right click on the video and choose Video > Set as Wallpaper .

Note: When you set the video as wallpaper with VLC Media Player, the desktop icons do not appear and the Windows toolbar still appears even if you make the video full screen.
