    Looping Animated GIF in MMS

    I have sent an MMS SMIL presentation where one slide includes an animated GIF.
    If it is sent to a Sharp, Sony Ericsson, Motorola phone etc. the animated GIF will loop for the duration of the slide.

    On a Nokia 6600 the Animated GIF will only play once.
    If the MMS objects are viewed seperately then the animated GIF will loop.

    I have also seen this replicated on a 6630 and 6680.

    Is this a problem in the MMS viewer on the series 60 platform?

    Many thanks.

    Could be a bug, could be the Nokia phones are interpreting the MMS more correctly than the other phones.

    What does the SMIL document say? Is there a repeatCount, repeatDuration or mediaRepeat attribute for the animation?

    I already set the dur="10min", but the Animated Gif just play once only (less than 1 minute)

    but if the MMS objects are viewed seperately then the animated GIF will loop.

    thus, I dont think so the Nokia phones are interpreting the MMS more correctly than the other phones.

    The SMIL document can override whatever the repeatcount/frame timings are set in an animated GIF.

    If you want help debugging this problem, you're going to need to paste your XML.

    The "img" tag is for still images, not animations.

    Yes, the image tag is specifically for rendering *still* images. What happens when you supply an animated image is undefined. You want to use the animation tag.
