Videos as wallpaper on Xiaomi
Usually setting a video as wallpaper on Android comes bundled with third-party apps, but MIUI 12 comes with this feature natively. We may never have realized that it is there and, in fact, it does not appear in the options of the wallpaper settings , but we have to look for the option directly in the gallery.
- We open the gallery application
- We select the video we want as the background
- Click on the three buttons to open the menu
- We set as wallpaper
In addition to setting the video as the wallpaper, we can set it as the background of the lock screen , so that it is the same in both panels. You have to bear in mind that a video will always consume more energy than a photograph , as they are moving images that give work to the pixels on our screen.
