Some Frequently Asked Questions:

Q1. Can I put a video on my lock screen?

You can definitely make live wallpaper on iPhone using live photos or on Android using a third-party app. All you have to do is first convert the video into a live photo and then set it on the lock screen. If you want to convert a video to a live wallpaper on either iPhone or Android, you’ll need a separate app. Those who wish to use a video from TikTok or a GIF will convert them to live photos first.

Q2. How do I turn a Tik Tok into a live photo?

To turn a TikTok video into live wallpaper or photo, all you have to do is first go to the video you want to use (the account must be public). Choose the desired video. Hit the “Share” icon (the curved arrow on the right-hand side of the video), then hit “Live Photo.” The video will be converted into a live photo, which you can find in your photo library. Also, you can set this as your wallpaper according to your preference.


As we all know, live photos are a unique feature that only iPhone offers. So, in Android phones, you can only set them as your wallpaper for live photos (also called live wallpapers). And so they cannot be shared with anyone or viewed in the Photos app, just like iPhone. So use them as wallpaper and enjoy.


Android does not support live photos created by the iPhone and treats them as images. Make sure to check the receiver’s device before sending the live photo.

However, live photos look tremendous but refrain from setting them as your wallpaper as they consume a significant amount of your battery. This is because live photos are like continuously playing videos. When you apply them as wallpaper, you are essentially forcing your iPhone to constantly play a video whenever you are on the home screen.


Summing up the article on how to convert a live photo to video and a video to live photo on iPhone, we have covered up all the essential steps and methods to do the same. With these easy and simple steps, you can make a photo’s video or vice versa and enjoy making short videos such as GIFs and putting them on your device’s screen and enjoy.

Converting a live photo to video is an excellent way of ensuring cross-platform compatibility. These features help you enjoy the videos and pictures and share them with your loved ones.
