Trouble with a particular GIF

Sep 3, 2010 at 10:13 AM


I am getting a UnsupportedImageFormatException when I try to load a particular gif using AnimatedImage.  I have already called AddDecoder<GifDecoder>(), and other gif images work fine.  Do you know if there is something wrong with this particular GIF file which I uploaded at

My code is something like:

new AnimatedImage()
    Stretch = Stretch.None,
    Source = ""

Thanks in advance!

I will check it the next days, thanks for your post.

I am still getting the same exception with version 0.3.  The front page ImageTools Demo Application couldn't load the image either.

Can you please download and build the latest version from source control and test the decoder with various images? Your image is loaded now, but It would help to have more tests.

Thanks!  The latest (56298) version works for this particular gif.  I will test with more gifs for sure.

It seems the 56298 build doesn't work with these gifs:

The front page ImageTools Demo app couldn't load them either.

Forgot to add that there was no error messages with the above 2 images - the images just wouldn't load.
