Is it possible to have Android live wallpapers on Windows 7?

What you are looking for is called 'Dreamscene'. It used to be a part of windows but was later turned off. There are several websites that offer little applications for free to turn it back on. Then you can set any video that Windows Media Player can use as the wallpaper.

I am not linking to any of these sites as I would not be surprised that some have crapware/malware what not.

There are workarounds for Dreamscene, apparently. But I've never tried them… – Sathya Dec 3 '10 at 4:16

A good software that is along the lines of what you are looking for (but not from Android) is Desktop Earth. It's dynamic, and pretty cool! Have used myself, seems to be clean...

Dreamscene was good but consumed a lot of system recources.

If you are running and older system like dual core or earlier, better not use it and I don't think Dreamscene works on Windows 7. Why not try out live rotating earth wallpaper for windows instead.
