Corrupted playback of animated GIF (FIXED)

Post by Dstruct » Thu Oct 23, 2008 2:02 pm

XnView 1.95

This animated GIF (created with VirtualDub 1.8.6) doesn't play properly in XnView:


You can see that Firefox 3.0.3 can play the animation properly without these artefacts!


FIXED (1.96)

Here another example:

http://phil.ipal.org/tc.html (first image on the page) -> XnView can't handle it properly



Maybe this helps:

Don't know if this is fixed 100% in 1.96.

If I try to view the GIF from within Total Commander I just get a small red square. No animation shown.

In XnView standalone the animation seems to work fine. I'm just not sure if the red background is right!?
