You can import them but apps are not going to display them animated. That's something that would have to be implemented. Where do those images come from?

I'm learning how to make them from a thread @ Kodi.tv for animated posters.   movie78 @ kodi.tv forums, they are his work and i take no credit for them.

You should contact Kode and try to get them listed on fanart.tv.  If they're not publicly available then hardly anyone will be using them, and that's going to affect our ability to allocate much time towards it.

Luke what if i contact the maker of the animated gifs and she if i can link them thru my Google drive. Would that be ok?

It's still just not enough content for the feature to actually gain traction. That's why having them in a place like fanart or TheMovieDb will make it very visible and others will start contributing their own creations and then it will take off.

Yep it appears they do work in the web client. But you can not upload then or select them in image edit(v3.1.198). So applying them is all manual. Doesn't appear Coverart likes them but I don't see any errors in the log.

I just downloaded the image from here and renamed it.  I used folder.gif, but poster.gif should work also and placed it in the movie folder.  You can wait for Emby to discover the update or do a refresh of the movie.

 

**Edit you will probably have to remove or rename the folder/poster.jpg that already exists.  I just renamed for testing purposes.

I just meant online database in the sense that before we commit to this feature across all the apps, we'd want to see that its' actually being used by a good number of people, and there would be no better way to promote the feature than having it on fanart or MovieDb.

Luke i only found the json database,and you have to have some skill in coding to read it,so i'm going to see about getting them to let me put together a good size collection of animated movie posters and see if i can get them up on one or both sites.

Can you imagine what the screen would look like full of posters and all of them animating...?

I highly doubt that would happen. I would probably only animate posters for my favorite/ultimate movies (that'd be like 20 out of 400 movies lol)

Then I think it would look very odd/distracting with only one or two of them doing it.

 

I still contend that this feature should be constrained to detail pages where there is only one poster.

Also wouldn't having lots of gif files tax your system?

It might slow down a very low powered client - but its no different to the average web page with all the adverts if you dont run an add blocker.

 

Also running a video with a higher frame rate then the gif will slow it down considerably more.

 

One thing that the OP needs to consider is the size of the gif's ~5Meg is to big in my view - but they look good and i like them much more than all the funky colours all over the place now in Emby.

 

If at some point CoverArt was to support them that would be good to.

The images are just Animated GIF files so if you had support for that in the server and clients then it would work. I believe that ImageMagick can even resize them when necessary.

There is support in the server the issue is the clients might be requesting image formats that dont' support animation.

I personally would not like it but to each his own... especially with that pop when the animation loops... if i ever use that feature the animation would have to be fluid, looping correctly and the image not look like its only got 256 colors... but that might be a gif limitation.
