Live wallpapers are a shortcut to (micro)stutter on your system while, for example, gaming. You've been warned ;)

Other than that, there is also Wallpaper Engine, if you're concerned about security, it's carried by a far bigger community. Its on Steam, and other places.

don't think the stutter would come from live video feeds or animated wallpapers on your desktop background more than a ocasional windows update check or steam chat window opening or a app update checker

Hi,
Really depends on what resources the system has available to how disruptive they are

Safe, well depends on how good your security is and how much you back up.
