Faster way to show animated gif on screen

Recommended Posts

Hey, i'm trying to display a big animated gif on the screen (1440x1080 15Mb), i already tried this UDF from trancexx:

but it is too slow... it takes around 15s to display it, there is another alteranative to do this thing? maybe with GDI.. i don't know. It's curious because the windows image previewer shows it instantly.

I have always felt good with the Mrs. trancexx's UDF, however, alternatively, you could try to embed a BrowserControl in your GUI and use it to display your animated gif.
I'm curious, let us know if there are any differences in performance ...

Local $hGUI = GUICreate("", 1440, 1080, 0, 0) ; Create a GUI
Local $oIE = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2") ; Create a BrowserControl
GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, 1440, 1080) ; Place the BrowserControl on the GUI
GUISetState() ;Show GUI

; use this syntax if your gif is on an url
; $oIE.navigate('https://media.giphy.com/media/rhWj2qCGOBhiE/giphy.gif')

; use this syntax if you have a local file instead
; $oIE.navigate('file:///' & @ScriptDir & '\MyAnimated.gif')

MsgBox(0, 'Pause', "Hit OK end")
