With the MIUI 12.5 Xiaomi has made big steps forward. The amount of new in terms of customization is insane, although we were a little disappointed with the amount of features itself. We know that compared to the Chinese version, the one that will arrive at us starting next month, it will not be equipped with objectively useful features. Among these MIUI +, or the mirroring service. However, it is possible to take advantage of the perks that allow, among other things, to customize the home page. So let's see how to set a video as a background on our device. It is very simple to set a video as wallpaper (home + lock screen) on our Xiaomi: here's how to do it in a few simple steps First of all, you don't necessarily need the MIUI 12.5 (which can already be installed thanks to Xiaomi.eu) on our smartphone to set a video as a background. The important thing is that the device firmware is updated to at least MIUI 12.0.5. Unless you have a branded smartphone, then you won't have any problems. If you have branded it, we post a guide to branding and receive all updates without delay. But having said that, let's see how to set up a video. first of all we will have to download or shoot a clip ourselves that will be saved in the Gallery once done, select the video and press the icon with the three dots (right photo) now select Set video background (photo in the center) and then choose the 'option that suits us best: lock screen, home screen or both That's it, now we will have a video set as the home page \/ lock screen. But be careful! Surely you will notice that the definition of the video is different from what we see through the gallery. The operating system automatically scales the video to fit it to fill the screen. Unfortunately, there is no way to avoid this. The result in essence is that we will see the video slightly larger than normal.
