Hi Guy's hope you can help, I would like to use an animated gif downloaded from weather underground on my raspberry pi to be displayed on my PiTFT screen. I hunted around for a couple of days looking for a suitable viewer without much luck, I have since discovered mplayer can play animated gifs and display it on the Adafruit PiTFT screen and works nicely with a 5 step animation. The current issue I am having is getting it to loop the gif until an interupt is used.
to display the gif i use this code
mplayer -vo fbdev2:/dev/fb1 -x 240 -y 320 -framedrop newcastle.gif
I have tried using the inbuilt -loop command but have no joy. If looping an animated gif via mplayer is not possible, then could i effectively reload the image within the same command if yes hdw.
any help / advice greatly appreciated.
also posted on raspberry pi.org but nothing forth coming from there as yet. Many Thanks Tony
