Set wallpaper as a YouTube video? (webcam)

Hi! I'm a new user to Display Fusion. I really love being able to set different wallpapers on my monitors and have them change at specified intervals.

I have a small 3rd monitor (for flight simulator stuff) - it is 600x800 (portrait mode). I was thinking it would be neat to be able to select a webcam or two or twenty to have it rotate through the day when I'm not using it for its intended purpose of being a touch-screen flight simulation device. ;)

I've tried adding the URL in "Load Image From URL", but it keeps telling me that "Failed to call LoadImageFallbackTHROWS.[System.Exception]" It kinda feels like YouTube isn't going to be possible, which is ok. It doesn't have to provide a live, 30fps stream all day! I was just thinking it would be neat if it grabbed a new image every 5 or 10 minutes.

Any suggestions?

If you use the "Website Wallpaper" source, you can enter the URL there and it should work.

Hope that helps!

Oh jeez... I was looking at the wrong icon. Sorry!
I used "Website Wallpaper" and it is showing me the live display. Now I just gotta figure out how to get it set so that it doesn't have all the chat stuff on it! :)
Thank you very much!

(edit) Just in case anyone is curious - Bring up the YouTube video in your browser. Then go up and edit the URL and change it from youtube.com to yout-ube.com (just add the dash, leave the rest the same). It'll generate a new URL for you with just the full-screen view. Plop that into DisplayFusion using the "Website Wallpaper" option as Owen suggested, and BAM! Wallpaper that is the video (in my case a webcam of Waikiki here in Hawai'i). ...now to add more Hawai'i webcams and make it shuffle through them ;)
