How to make a wallpaper from a video for Android

How? It's quite simple – go to the Gallery, find the video you need, then click on the icon with three dots and select "Set as wallpaper" (the exact wording may vary from brand to brand). Thus, you can get either a moving lock screen, home screen, or both.

However, note that the length of live wallpapers on Android should not exceed 15 seconds. But what if the video with the fragment you want to use is longer than that or even horizontal? Our tool will help you! With it, you can shorten the video, make it vertical, or combine fragments from several videos with, for example, your pet. All this will take only a few minutes and an Internet connection, and everything else is simple:

  1. Add files

    Open Clideo’s Online Video Editor and click "Get started".

    To shorten the clip, click it in the timeline, then drag its sidebars till you find the perfect length. You can use the "Split" option to quickly cut the fragment as you need and remove unnecessary parts. You might also want to remove the sound in the video – to do so, click the clip, open the "Volume" tab in the options above, and set the value to 0%.

    Adjust video wallpaper settings

    If you want to add some text, click + on any preset in the "Text" tab or drag it to the preview or timeline. Then, you can write and customize the text however you need.
