What about a Gif Component or customize the Image Component for GIF Files?
It’s already on my ToDo
Will it take a long time?
I’m already working on it that the image component can show gif images too.
After two hours the work is done and will be available in the next update.
In the meanwhile, you can try an extension made by Said Lachguer available at (updated link to Makeroid post):
Also, I’m finishing an extension that uses the Glide Library where you can display gifs too
good method but too long
