    Step 5: Goto Video And check the Set As Wallpaper.
    Step 6: See the Desktop.

    No matter what program you use to display a video wallpaper, as soon as you close that program the video wallpaper stops. Since Windows on itself doesn't support video wallpapers you have to use a 3rd party program and VLC is as good or better than any other program. You can hide VLC from the taskbar and minimize it to the system tray so it just runs in the background.
