App Inventor for Educators › Forums › Educator Forum › Tips: Display animated gif in apps
One of my students has asked me how to display an animated gif in his Android app developed with Android Studio. The reason is that there is no animation in his app.
I have quickly launched App Inventor, made an app and found the same thing while there is animation in the browser.
After a while, I found a quick solution. Just convert the animated gif to a mp4 and display it with a Video Player component.
Although I can make it simulate the mp4 to act like the animated gif by using this block:
It does not start automatically when the app starts with this block:
Also, the video play menu cannot be disable as well, which means that the mp4 does not act exactly like the animated gif and I am looking for a solution for that
