    I was wondering if its possible to change the City Lights wallpaper to be on lockscreen instead of the background and how to do it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm only guessing on this, but try renaming it "LockBackground" (without quotes, of course).

    Actually i think the LockBackground file is .jpg the only picture format that supports annimation is .gif

    But winterboard has support for .mov and .mp4 wallpapers so mabey that also supprts the lockscreen. Worth a shot.

    Or you can configure a picture slide show with Lockbackground.html.
    But I think your talking more about a video wallpaper, which I don't think is possible....

    Renaming it LockBackground didnt work but could you convert the mp4 into a .gif? I'm not really sure how gifs work so I doubt it but idk.

    Even in gif form it wouldn't work.
