Probably a dumb question, but what's the deal with GIFs as wallpapers? And Live?

I was considering a Live wallpaper, but after some quick googling it seems like a very redundant thing to do considering all the steps it takes.

In the case of GIFs, does it process the GIF entirely as a wallpaper? Or does this not work?

When I was a kid I accidentally saved a porn gif as my wallpaper and freaked out. I had to frantically Google how to fix it because I was still new to computers then. Believe it or not but it wasn't uncommon for families to not have computers in 2000-2004. By kid I mean I was like 14 or so.

You'll need to make the gif into a live wallpaper. It's ridiculously easy. Just search "gif live wallpaper" in the Play Store.

EDIT: You're talking about Android, right?


Windows 7 Desktop

Preferably without any downloads or sign-ups, I'm wondering if there is a simplistic way to do it.

You don't want to use a gif as a desktop wallpaper. A low resolution 256 color image blown up to fill your screen will look like s***.

That's a valid truth.
