Gif Loop

Post by Hemi177 » Tue Dec 31, 2013 5:39 am

I've been looking for an image viewing program that lets me view gif files in a full screen or slideshow mode. I tried out irfranview but it played the gifs back much slower than they would play in say, Firefox. I heard of Xnview and decided to try it out. It plays the gifs either at or very close to the speed in which they play in a web browser which is a huge plus to me, however I have a problem with the slideshow function. Whenever I add gif files to a slideshow and then start the slide show they go through all of their frames 1 time and then do not loop. I have tried with many different gifs and they all do this. The gifs loop perfectly fine when they are opened in Xnview. It's just that once I try to use them in an Xnview slideshow that this problem crops up. Is there any way to make the gifs loop in a slideshow?
