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
Facebook Mobile Cydget
(Awayview is the standard LockScreen)
The screen order is setup in the settings app under Cydgets and are located at
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
window.location = "http://m.facebook.com/";
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
You might want to install LockScreen DimDelay to extend the time the LockScreen stays on.
here are some more...
A song saved in downloads folder
UK FreeView TV
iDownloadblog (sorry Modmyi)
A webcam view
Europe weather radar
Florida Weather Radar
A PDF file saved in Downloads
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.

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
