Wallpaper Engine 1.7 Changes

Aside from Android, we have also been working on another update for Wallpaper Engine on Windows. With Wallpaper Engine 1.7, we are adding video texture support for Scene wallpapers and a new Livestream Mode, among other new features and bug fixes.

Video Textures

Up until now, the Wallpaper Engine editor only supported static image as a basis for all imported materials. We have now created a way that users can import .mp4 video files as image layers in the editor and they can used just like any other image layer, meaning effects can be applied to them and other assets may be placed over them, allowing for video-based wallpapers to become just as interactive and dynamic as static wallpapers previously. We recommend using H.264 compression for the best compatibility across systems.

You can also use video files as base textures of your wallpaper, to do this, click on “Use a Template” in the editor welcome window, select “2D Scene” and configure the resolution of your video file. Then simply drag and drop your video file into the new project and it will be added as a new image layer in your project.

Web Livestream Support

A relatively specific feature request in the past was to support setting web livestreams as wallpapers. Due to license issues, this is not easily possible and required us to implement a whole new web framework solely to enable livestream video formats for websites. To access the new Livestream Mode, click on “Open Wallpaper” in the lower left corner of Wallpaper Engine, then select “Open from URL”.

You can now enable the new “Use Livestream Mode” option for URLs with livestreams in them. The first time you access this feature, Wallpaper Engine will install the new Microsoft’s Edge WebView browser which is automatically maintained by Microsoft and includes support for the required video formats. It’s also somewhat limited in its Wallpaper Engine functions, so we only recommend using it if you specifically want to set a livestream as a wallpaper. Specifically, there is no keyboard input and using the mouse for input requires hiding the icons first with the built-in hotkey.
