    Use a video as your wallpaper

    This will tell you how to use a video as your wallpaper in Springboard.

    WARINING - YOUR THEME MUST BE DISABLED TO USE THIS


    Let's begin. First of all, add this source to Cydia-

    Now you will need to find this app, 'vWallpaper'

    Now you'll need to on the 'Enable Video' option. Then go to 'Select Video' or 'Download Videos' for more videos

    Remember, you need to disable your theme for this to work.

    If you want to add your own videos (.mov and .mp4 format) then SSH into your iPod and add the videos here-

    /Library/Skrew/Videos

    Thanks for reading!

    note that video backgrounds kill the battery life for your device.

    Thanks for the guide!

    Doesn't WinterBoard natively support video wallpapers? As in, all you gotta do is rename your movie to Wallpaper.mp4 (or something like that) and stick in your theme folder...?
