A new tutorial titled How to use a video as your account picture in Windows 8 was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

A new feature in Windows 8 is the ability to use a short video clip as your account picture instead of a static image. This feature, though, does come with some limitations that include videos will only play on the welcome screen and will not be animated on the Windows Start Screen, the videos will be restricted to having 5 seconds in length and will loop continuously, and you will not be able to use any existing videos as your account picture. Instead you must create it via your webcam from within Windows settings. If these limitations do not bother you, then this tutorial will walk you through creating a video and assigning it to your account picture.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
