Adding animations on desktop (not bg)

I would like to know if there is a way to make images/animations/videos show up on screen, overlapping windows. Basically, what iStripper does (but customizable and less nudity lol). Not a background, not a window, just the image.

I found this furrysoft: DeskFun but apparently there is only a Mac version.

Also, back in old windows versions, it was possible to add gifs, thats kinda what I want but for win10

The old active wall paper feature of XP never made it to another OS release because it was a security risk. There is nothing free or built-in anymore that will do that. You can go a paid route and try deskscape. DeskScapes: Software from Stardock Corporation

What you need is Splinter.
