Animated gif player/software

Postby Elvis1990 » Mon Feb 13, 2017 12:08 am

Is there any software for the ST that would be able to play an animated gif from a floppy disk?

If not, is there a similar picture/animation format native to STs?
ISTR watching my friend record a moving image to his ST via a video capture device, but this was 25 years ago!

There is GEMVIEW, that is a universal image viewer, but I don't recall if it plays animated gif's or not.

MP_STE (viewer and video maker) can play animated GIF (slow) http://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/downld_e.htm (thanks Moulinaie!!!)
so the FLM format is more speed on ST,
else you can use Cyberpaint to create your own animated (but not GIF)

That link is dead here. Goes to Suddenlink's suggestion page... :(

EDIT: But works fine when I paste into it into Firefox. Go figure...

Unfortunately GemView will only load the first frame. zView will animate them, but its system requirements prevent it from working on a plain ST.

Just to verify MM41's post above - Mplayer STe will indeed play animated
GIfs. Here is a short (and amateurish) video showing my Pak 68/3 equipped
STacy playing a couple of GIFs. This is at 40mhz with the output to a color
LCD.

Feel free to send me some .GIF which don't display correctly :)
resolution must be maximum 320x200 with 16 used colors max.
Gif with non even width make the decoder crash (because of the C2P routine which reads words)

What about a Web Browser? Doesn't CAB, Netsurf or Highwire do animated GIFs?

Prism Paint v1.1 loads gif - old format images - otherwise the color palette is gray -.
But Gif images created by Prism Paint are correctly loaded by your application.
