Set Web Content as a Live Wallpaper on your Android Device
Thanks to XDA member _miha_ and their development of WebLiveWallpaper you can now set content that is on the internet as your live wallpaper. It is a free app and have many practical uses such as watching a streaming feed from your home security camera to a ski resort to watch the weather conditions.
The app allows for you to set the following as backgrounds:
- Internet Webcam
- Image Gallery
And had many more uses as it can connect to internet streams. As quoted from the OP, it does the following:

We hope you enjoy this great live wallpaper addition, please download it and leave your feedback for _miha_ in the development thread.
