How to display an animated GIF?

0 votes

I want to display animated GIF images in my aplication. As I found out the hard way Android doesn't support animated GIF natively.

However it can display animations using AnimationDrawable?

The example uses animation saved as frames in application resources but what I need is to display animated gif directly.

My plan is to break animated GIF to frames and add each frame as drawable to AnimationDrawable.

Android actually can decode and display animated GIFs, using android.graphics.Movie class.

This is not too much documented, but is in SDK Reference. Moreover, it is used in Samples in ApidDemos in BitmapDecode example with some animated flag.
