    Default Personal short video repeating in lockscreen (personal moving background in lockscreen)
    Hello,


    I'm searching how I can play a short, personal video in my lockscreen (and repeat itself). You can call it a personal background.
    I know AnimateAll, but you can only use the boot logos that are provided, I want a custom boot logo... How can I do this? Thank you

    Have you tried Cydgets in Cydia? These are LockScreen views which you toggle through with the home button. They have their own tab in Cydia sections. Some examples are
    Cydialer
    Places Cydget
    Locklight Cydget
    Facebook Mobile Cydget
    (Awayview is the standard LockScreen)

    The screen order is setup in the settings app under Cydgets and are located at
    /System/Library/LockCydgets/
    you can edit the index.html file using iFile or edit and preview with Espresso Html (App Store)
    Places Cydget has two screen buttons and I have managed to edit the code for web cams and weather radars
    However Facebook Mobile Cydget is the easiest index.html to edit as it only contains

    <script>
    window.location = "http://m.facebook.com/";
    </script>

    All you need to do is change the address in the quotes. This could be a website news page, a webcam view, a weather radar etc.

    But in your case, you want to play a video on the LockScreen, so save it in the Downloads folder and alter the address in quotes from
    "http://m.facebook.com/"
    to
    "file:///var/mobile/Media/Downloads/myvideo.mp4"

    You might want to install LockScreen DimDelay to extend the time the LockScreen stays on.

    here are some more...

    You can rename FaceBookMobile.cydget to SomethingElse.cydget so long as you edit it's plist as well. Then install a second FaceBook Mobile Cydget and start again for another LockScreen view of your choosing.

    Thanks for your help, but i think this is a little bit dificult for me...
    Isn't there an easier solution (like use a custom boot logo that I can use in animateall?)
    The video is like 1 second long, i would like to create an effect like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ktbhw0v186Q
