Hello Firebone21

Yes that's possible have a look at the links below -
Enable DreamScene in Windows 7 - Download DreamScene Activator | The Windows Club
dreamscene.org - Home - free dreamscenes, windows 7 themes and desktop tools
Random Video Loops*-*VistaHD.org

The dreamscene activator will add a "set as desktop background" in the right click context menu when you hover over a supported video file.

The third link has a huge supply of video loops to use

You can also do it with VLC media player. VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!.
Use Video->Direct3d Desktop Mode.
