Just download the app and the gif, and you can make the gif your background
Yes, you can do something similar. /u/RPGamerFTW linked this store page to an app you can use to convert gif to live wallpaper.
The gifs are on a timer, and a double press *tap can also be used to change the image.
I am not finding any significant battery life drainage as I hardly spend time on the homescreeen as it is.
I highly recommend this app. You can use this gif as your wallpaper. No it has not impacted my battery life in any meaningful way. I have a ton of cinemagraph wallpapers now.
It's actually AnimGif Live 2... I use it too. But with this gif.
I just looked into it and tried this and you can use it. I messed with the settings and slowed it down a bit for effect and it is working great. Someone just needs to improve the size of the cinemagraph to be more vertical than horizontal and it will look great I bet.
I have a Nexus 6 and can attest to it being silky smooth. Give them a try!
I've always used this to create gif wallpapers, it isn't the best designed app, and it's stuck in Gingerbread hell, but it works.
I want to also recommend AnimGIF. With this you can also select multiple gifs or an entire folder to rotate through every few minutes/hours/whatever you want (if you want, I can share my folder of animated pixel art). It also gives you a few image fitting modes which it will apply automatically.
Yep there is for Android , all you gotta is download this app and OP's gif, and then simply set the downloaded gif as a wallpaper and adjust the gif to fit your screen. The free version works fine, and it barely uses any battery on my part.
Edit: example video (it laggs ecause of my screen recorder) [link]
On android I use AnimGif Live wallpaper to set gifs as my wallpaper, there are probably some other great apps that do the same thing. Can't speak for iOS though.
Aight, I saw in the last thread that people might also want this on Android, so heres how to do it all from your phone.
Download AnimGIF live wallpaper
This lets you use any gif as a live wallpaper.
Now, for some reason, Imgur is super shitty and won't let you download gifs directly from their mobile site, you have to use their crummy app. Now on the last one, even using the app it wouldn't download as a gif, it downloaded as an mp4 video file.
You'll have to convert this to a gif, i used this website, EzGif.com.
Now that you have your gif ready, open AnimGIF, and set it as your live wallpaper. Then go into the settings/edit menu for it, and you should be able to select your gif there.
I used to use this one, /u/mrkitty27. Can't speak for what it's like now but it always did the job before.
EDIT - for the OP gif, I think it might be a bit low res once blown up to full screen height. Worth a try though.
If you have iOS, I don't think you can do it.
But, if you have Android then you can just download this app to do it.
Wanted to set that as a live screen background...
Used [link] to convert the mp4 to a gif. (Might be better ways; don't know.)
Used [link] to convert the gif to a live wallpaper. (Set gif image in setup.) Worked.
I don't have a smartwatch, but I managed to save those gifs as my phones wallpaper using this. Just in case anyone else was interested.
I used an app that converts a gif to live wallpaper.
There's a pro version for a couple bucks if you like it.
I use AnimGIF LWP2 on an Android phone running Cyanogenmod.
Works like a charm.
Here's the app I used to apply it.
If you're on Android you can with an app like this one. I am currently using it with this gif as my background.
For Android devices, there are actually several apps that let you use GIFs as backgounds. I use this one:
They do eat extra battery, but it's an awesome customization tool!
There's an app in the Play Store that makes it pretty easy. Free version has a small watermark. But meh.
I can only speak for android as I've never had an iphone, but I use an app called AnimGif . Just download the gif and set it as the wallpaper.
There are apps, but be warned that they'll drain your battery.
I use [link] for animated gif wallpaper; this in combination with the motion stills app might do it.
I have a gif of my (deceased) cat thwapping my wife's forehead with her tail. It'll probably be my wallpaper until I die.
Search for "gif live wallpaper" on the play store.
Edit: it took me a while, but i was able to do it all on my phone.
Now, imgur is super shitty and won't let you download a gif straight up. When i downloaded it, it was in mp4 format, so i had to convert that to a gif here
Other than that, it was pretty straightforward.
It isn't perfect, but it gets the job done.
There are a ton of apps that will do this for you. Just search for gif live on your devices app store. I have used this one in the past [link] but it just uses too much battery life.
I think it would be an awesome screensaver though
Possibly? Do you mean use it as your home screen wallpaper? There appears to be a few programs that can accomplish this. I haven't used any so I can't vouch for how well they work. But a quick search brought this up:
You can! Use this link
If you are on an android device.
Download the gif from IMGUR and use it. boom!
I have multiple pages and if I swipe right, it gives me the rest of the gif.
Is there anyway I can have this as a live background on my phone?
Edit: found this app that would let me.
Android phone has a lot of apps for it. Like this.
Not sure on iOS though.
I don't think it is possible with ifttt, since they're gifs but it is possible with AnimGIF. Although it is very finicky. You'd have to choose your too gifs, set the interval to 12 hours, activate double tap, wait for a cycle to start, double tap the screen if until the wallpaper for the current cycle starts and deactivate double tap.
I used this gif [link] and put it on the homescreen with this [link] (you need android)
Might be worth looking into for a novelty you get bored of after a week :>
Animgif I saw it in another comment somewhere looking for wallapers, theres an option on there to make it fit to screen instead of the default fit best which makes it more zoomed in on the centre, at least on my phone. Youd have to try out which one would be better on your phone
Battery too. I wouldnt use this even on a laptop
Doesnt seem impossible, though. Theres even a [sub](/r/wallpapergif/) for it
If you are on Android, you can use this:
Or something like it. I have a folder of a bunch of Kirokaze and other animated gifs that it cycles thru.
I think Animgif might do it. Haven't tested the dimensions you mention, but I have used a gif which is wider than one screen and it scrolls...
I made this and you can see the background scrolls.
No problem! About to set something up like this too.
And as was about to delve into apps/self refreshing html local, found;
Looks like you can set up a slideshow in Google Photos anyway. That /might/ work and for considerably less effort than setting up a webserver with all this stuff on (that I might do anyway as I already have the server and would want a bit more control).
Doh, I'm a muppet. Already got this installed;
Give that free version a go and see if it'll work for you. Download all your gifs/mp4's to a folder, point that to it, and it'll cycle through them all on the backdrop. Use a custom launcher and have a 'blank' page so you get to see them all, but you'd still be able to (if you want) launch apps over the top of it.
Set 'don't turn off if charging' in settings.
And that might do it crazy cheap/easy.
You can use a gif! There's a few live wallpaper apps that can use gifs you've downloaded to your phone. I've used AnimGif in the past
I used AnimGIF LWP 2 to make my wallpaper a gif.
Its supposed to work for the lock screen too, but I couldn't figure it out. If anyone knows let me know.
Just save the gif, install this app:
[link] then select the file in that app and set it as wallpaper...
I use this all of the time to save cool gifs from Reddit as live wallpaper...
To get a link to an app in the Playstore, just hit share and copy the link!
Edit: Meant to reply to u/namelessfuck
Here is a google drive that has all of the animations converted from mpeg to gif:
Google Drive: Espers
And I used Anigif Live Wallpaper from the Play Store to run it
I considered making these into individual APKs but I didn't have enough time to compile before family shenanigans for the fourth. After thinking about it, running it using Anigif let's you shuffle them all in an allotted time (as well as which ones you do & don't want) instead of one by one in sequential order.
For the sake of your SD Card / on board memory, this is best option.
Special thanks to u/heer0 for helping get my hands on the original mpegs.
Edit: Updated Source Folder To Include Carbuncle & Odin
Better and easier to use gif version as live wallpaper using this app
It will drain battery a bit tho
here you go [link]
after you downloard that , youll need a free program to run the gif as a backround
heres the link to download the software
the gif file ^^^^
the program you need to use it as a backround
I made this late last night, so haven't really had a chance to mess around with it fully. pro version is $3 and removes the watermarks and ads:
You could make an entire screen-sized GIF that only had that part animated, then use the GIF as a wallpaper on your lockscreen.
I just use AnimGIF Live Wallpaper to make it work on my phone : P
I have a ridiculous amount of furry phone wall papers, I'll probably never ever get to see yours come up.
For android you could download AnimGif LWP 2 and use a gif from /r/Cinemagraphs like this one. The hard part though is finding a background color to go with the gif since the gif will most likely not take up the whole screen. Also you can buy the pro version of the app to remove the water mark.
Just download this app [link] It had nothing to do with the game.
^^Info ^^| [^^Subreddit](/r/User_Simulator)
Depends on what kind of phone you have. I can only speak for android, but since these are all .gif images android will keep saving it as a .png file, and the result will be a static image on your phone. In order to save it as it's native format (gif) you would have to use an app, like AnimGIF (Just a note, I've never used this app so good luck).
Yes. Download the GIF onto your phone, then download this. [link]
I use this app.
There might be better ones out there, but I know this one works.
Install this and load the gif.
There are a couple of gif to live wallpaper apps. Like all live wallpapers, they consume a decent amount of battery.
If you are an android user I believe you can
AnimGIF Live wallpaper 2
Really cool. And for the people with android here, here is an app for gif live wallpapers: [link]
Download THIS app, and the pic. Fire away. Bit old, but it works.
My Lock Screen
This is the app I used for the gifs that are my home screen
If your phone is running android I've got good news for you. Not the cleanest app but I've gotten it working quite nicely. I think I had this and this on rotation for a while.
AnimGIF Live Wallpaper
I use an android phone. Maybe today I'll try making it into an animated background.
Something I found:
If you're on android: [link]
I use an App called AnimGIV and it works great for creating live wallpapers. I have mine setup as a slideshow that can change between night and day by simply double tapping the backround.
This is what I use, doesn't kill battery life that much either.
That's doable, actually. I'd use ezgif to crop it to the right ratio, then probably AnimGif (paid, unfortunately, not sure if there's a free option) or some similar app to display it.
I'm always collecting perfectly looped gifs or videos that can be converted to gifs for use on my phone, they make great wallpapers.
Also, incidentally, there's a little application that just displays the above fullscreen when you run it. I use it at work whenever I go on a break from my computer.
Turn GIF's into live wallpapers app
I use this (Android)
You can i downloaded app of Playstore for this gif
