  3. In the following window, tap on the Video of your choice. I’m using one of the leaked OnePlus 9 live wallpapers we shared earlier this month.
  4. On the following screen, click OK to confirm your selection.
  5. To proceed to the next step, you’ll need to tap the “Apply” button underneath the selected wallpaper on the app’s home screen.
  6. Another pop-up window will appear with instructions on how to apply the wallpaper. On the window, click OK.
  7. On the following page, click Video to Wallpaper.
  8. A preview pane should now have a “Set Wallpaper” button at the bottom. The next step can be reached by tapping this button or checking the Preview option in the top right corner.
  9. When you tap the Set Wallpaper button, a prompt will appear asking where you want to apply the wallpaper. There are two options – one to use the wallpaper on your home screen and one to apply it to both the home screen and lock screen.
  10. The wallpaper can be applied using either of the two options.

The live wallpaper now appears on your lock screen and home screen, depending on your choice. You can switch the live wallpaper by doing the same actions whenever you choose. Since all of the live wallpapers you choose in step 4 will be visible on the app’s home screen, switching between them will be simple.

A great third-party app for making a video of your live wallpaper is VideoWall. Once you’ve installed the app, choose the Video you want to use as your background.

Think about scaling up or down and, most importantly, the audio. Use a portrait-oriented film as your video wallpaper because a horizontal one might not fit properly. When you’re done configuring everything, click the “Set wallpaper” button.

You can put this recently made Video as your lock screen or home screen live wallpaper.
