How would you survive? Will it get Pro after beta?
Ultra HD is a very good similar app. You can have some inspiration... ;)
Will test yours too :)

Thanks, let me know what you think. There will be many more wallpapers/videos to choose from. I don't have ads in any of my apps as I find them quite annoying, especially when they're all over the place like some apps. Some of the wallpapers will be paid, one already is in beta for testing. Link to Ultra HD? Can't find it.

Thanks. Congratulations! A lot of us hate ads.

Interesting. UltraHD and ScreensPro both look very similar, one somehow copied the other. ScreensPro is filled with ads all over the place, UltraHD looks decent at least. However, I think our goals are a little bit different. If you notice, their videos are pretty short loops, and I'm not convinced they're even 1080p (at least with the source also being 1080p). They also crop and zoom in landscape.

Indeed, short loops.
But, after all, there are some (not that much) free videos that are really good.
I'd rather nature and landscaping ones ;)

Came here via r/android post. This is pretty neat. I'm testing out the fire background. I'm curious to see how minimal the battery drain will be. I usually use weatherback overlay on my wallpaper, that's taking a backseat to your app now :)

A waterfall type video would be bad ass. Would love to help generate same videos.

Keep up the good work, working flawlessly on 6P.

    Cant install in Moto E 2 4G . well i know is not a high end phone but i wish i could try .. thats all.

    I actually went ahead and downloaded the apk from elsewhere and it seems that previews dont work and also it gets stuck loading for the vid before setting it up; if u go ahead and use it it will just give a black screen background

    Yes, it doesn't work well on the Moto E, which is why it's an excluded device. I'm not sure why. I'd need one to test.

    In Huawei P8(android v5.0) after couple of seconds when screen is off and then i turn it on the wallpapers freeze and i need set up again.
    And i hope in next versions we could control speed of wallpapers because some wallpapers runes very fast.
    And i think instead of pay for wallpapers you can add ads in app and every wallpaper we choose to preview or download it will play ad, and in pro version people will could support you for pay for remove ads and buy you a beer :)

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Why the app isn't available for Colombia?

    is the OnePlus One an excluded device? Would really like to test the app but I'm unable to download it via playstore

    "This item is not available in your country." (Philippines)

    That's a shame, I really wanted to try this.

    not available in my country (uruguay) ¬¬ really? 2016 and still country blocked ??

    Installed on my N5 and downloaded the ice-river video. It was too fast for my taste and some speed settings would be much appreciated.

    Videos are beautiful though and the app itself is good.

    Nice work man.

    "This item is not available in your country." (Saudi Arabia)

    @Flyview http://www.droidorigin.com/use-wallfix-to-set-videos-as-wallpapers/

    Also, I have created a mirror for users like above. If you want, I can remove it.

    To all of the above: please download via attached apk or mirrors as such provided by @DJBhardwaj (which are totally fine by me). I should really start using XDA Labs to list publish as well!

    Thanks for the support everyone! If you enjoy the app, please leave a review on Google Play.

    The app looks interesting. I would suggest you add a video preview on the Play store since this is a video/live wallpaper app. (I understand you may not want to invest a lot of time creating a video going through all of the options right now because they are still fluid, but a simple example video would help.)

    Video added! Good enough for now?

    Hi,

    Currently working on OnePlus One running Sultanxda's Unofficial CyanogenMod 12.1

    Thanks for the nice wallpapers. Though it might be a pipe dream, I'd really like to be able to set my own videos as wallpapers one day.
