Plastuer is a useful program available on the internet that let users set web pages, gif, and videos as wallpaper in windows. Since it is a Pay What You want recognizes, you need to make a little donation to download the tool. It is up to you how much amount you want to pay:
In this blog post, I’m going to use Plastuer to set video as wallpaper in Windows 10. Here is how you can use the program:

Now pay the amount of your choice to download the Plastuer. To pay and download, Scroll down to bottom, enter the amount you want to pay and click on the Buy Now button.
The system will redirect to Paypal.com, enter your payment details, pay the amount and return to the Plastuer website.
2. Extract the Zip file. You will get the Plastuer folder.
3. Open the folder and run the Plastuer.exe file.
The tool will quickly analyze the number of the screen on the Windows 10 PC and show you following screen. Here you need to select the screen where you want to set video wallpaper.
Note: In my case, I’m using only one screen
4. In the next screen, you will see four options:
- Disable Wallpaper
- Create Playlist
- Select File
- Browse Gallery
Accompanied by address bar to enter the URL of the video.
5. Now you need to set video wallpaper for your current desktop. Here is how you can do that:
Online Video – If you want to set online video as desktop background, then enter the URL of the video and click Save. (I personally not recommend this method).
Video available on PC – If you want to use video available on the PC as video wallpaper for PC, then click on the Select File button. This will open the Browse window; here you need to navigate to the location where the video file is stored.
Select the file and click Save.
Note: For best results, I recommend you to use videos which are already saved on your system. You can also download the video in high definition and use instead of using it directly.

Once done, you can minimize the Plastuer software to the system tray by making a click on the Close button. This program will run in the background.
