    I'm a linux user so I SHOULD shut up. However my own experience with these things is that the desktop doesn't handle all the file formats an illustration or paint program does. You should know what the format your desktop handles and I have found this nice piece about getting Windows Vista to run wmv files on your desktop:

    There are similar tweaks for Linux by the way.And I can only assume this works for 7. I don't know about XP though. I'm a linux user.

    Save the url of the animated wallpaper. Right click save link or something like that.

    Then right click your desktop, choose properties, desktop, customize, web.

    Add a new web object, it will ask for the url. You should be able to adjust the size of the object after it is added
