    That's funny cause I had the Touch for a little while and don't remember it supporting animated .gif's. As a matter of fact no HTC phone that I"ve ever owned (6700, 6800, Touch Pro) ever supported it. I always thought it was a WinMo problem and not a carrier one.

    animated gifs also work as a file attachment in your email. at least it works through hotmail. its funny you can view the file through the email app but not on the browser viewing web pages

    i dont remember the centro doing gifs. never worked when i got one of those random texts with some cartoon character acting inappropriately.

    i play a game that has a gif map with embedded links that i cant select. sure wish that problem was fixed.

    Any other updates on animated gifs?
    Anyone know if this would even be possible with a future update, etc.

    I hate receiving txt messages with an animated gif, and not being able to play it.
    Sounds insane to me with todays technology.

    Boy will I second this request! I also have used the NWS animated radar for years on Treos and a Centro. The fact that the Pre can't display this radar is a MAJOR factor in making me reconsider this phone (which I otherwise LOVE).

    The animated WxRad app is great (and major thanks to the dev for keeping it free), bit those regional sector views just don't have the resolution of the local radar views. I fly for an airline and I used to use these NWS radar loops literally every day. Animated gifs are one of the oldest and simplest forms of moving graphic. The fact that a bleeding edge device like the Pre (is suppsed to be) can't display them on a webpage is nothing short of astounding. In my mind, it is a MASSIVE blunder on the part of the folks who built this browser.

    *** Palm? Please fix this! Do you really want to be like MS and force people to downgrade just to be able to use basic functionality they depend on?

    Hopefully someone write an extension to Web Kit that supports animated gif.
    I have animated GIFs on a web site I run. They animate just fine on iPhone (and Blackberry), but not on webOS.

    EDIT: on second though, it's probably that I'm on the emulator that it works.
    I just tried my site (which has animated GIF's) using the browser in the emulator. No dice.

    Hi guys.

    Just came across some interesting info.

    In /etc/palm/browser-app.conf there's this bit:
    # disable gif animations till display list is optimized
    DisableGifAnimations=true
    Which would make sense why gif images work in apps, but not in the browser app

    Ok that would be a great feature for this phone and maybe then I can see my picture mail move.

  12. #32

  13. #33

    Yea, I'm guess there's deeper coding than just the config.


    On a similar note, I feel I should mention, regardless of the config file, a gif in an img tag in a scene's view does seem to display animated gifs on the emulator

    -----------

    1) Goto ...(3Ws)palm.com/us/company/feedback.html, Feedback & Feature Requests Palm USA. And you request again!
    2) I requested ani.GIF ~Aug25.........
    3) My PREmature DOES load Intellicast.com ~500KB, 9-frame ani.GIF.
    BUT. By time indicator it only displays the last frame.
    4) See 10/28/2009, 11:01 PM Jason Robitaille (below) & thank him for the clue.

    (If anyone else needs a bull$hit detector app for their Pre, feel free to download/modify it to your heart's content!)

    With that piece of mis-information disposed of, I suspect that the problem is that Palm has several references to "lightweight" browser settings in their SDK docs. I haven't finished reading the materials by a long shot yet, but I did not see any reference to a non-lightweight browser mode, or how to enable/disable this mode. If I was the betting type, I'd put my money on the current browser only being the "lightweight" version, which doesn't render animated GIF files in some silly attempt to save battery power or CPU cycles. Figure out how to change that mode, and I bet that animated GIF files loaded by the browser app will suddenly start working.....

    I too am truly bothered by the absence of this feature while eagerly awaiting the arrival of flash support also since Adobe should already have a beta version ready and we know it should work...

    Any updates on if / when palm will fix this problem ?

    Thanks

    Keep in mind that enabling animated gifs will burn a few more cpu
    cycles and thus suck the battery a bit more.
