Make sure to read the post regarding Motion Not Available message and Tips on creating Live Wallpaper for iOS 17 because not all videos can be made into working Live Wallpaper if iOS is not able to add a motion effect.

iOS 17 now supports HDR video on the Lock Screen so make sure you turn it on in the App Options if you have an HDR video!

If you want to create a Live Sticker which is also new in iOS 17 you should pick the second option after tapping the Make button. You can read the How to make Live Sticker for iOS 17 post.

iOS 17 Bug:

Some Live Wallpapers created with VideoToLive might get the "Motion Not Available" message on the Lock Screen when you try to set it. If this happens tap Cancel and set it again and it should work.
