On Android it is possible to set a video as the wallpaper, although you have to download some applications and carry out the odd process. Fortunately, in Xiaomi this is a native option, so we do not have to install anything or complicate our lives.

We are going to show you how you can put a video as wallpaper in MIUI 12, a fairly simple trick that will allow you to customize your mobile to another level with any of the videos you have in the gallery.

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, does not appear in the wallpaper settings options, 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 lock screen background, so that it is the same in both panels. You have to keep in mind that a video will always consume more energy than a photograph, being moving images that give work to the pixels on our screen.
