Is it possible to use gifs as wallpaper?

Would be really nice to have some more life on my monitor. Is it possible to use gif as wallpapers the same way its possible to use pics as wallpapers (e.g. from your pc, but also from websites like imgur)? Can't seem to find a feature like that, but maybe I'm just missing it.

Thanks!

It sure is! In the latest beta (https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta), choose the "My Videos" source, and then add your gifs. Note that we're still working out some issues with it, especially in Windows 7, so your mileage may vary

OK, an individual GIF works fine as wallpaper when selecting "My Videos" as the source. The problem is when trying to use a folder with several GIFs and enabling the slideshow checkbox - unlike at videos (where it works as expected), at GIFs the option is being totally ignored by DisplayFusion (version Pro 9.6.1) and the first GIF simply stays on the screen idefinitely, regardless of the "Interval" setting and also regardless of the option "Ignore Wallpaper Timer".

Trying to move to the next image manually through the shortcut Ctrl-Win-R or through the context menu of DF has no impact either - the first GIF simply goes on cycling on the screen forever. Any solution for that in view?

We'll do some testing on this after the holidays and see what we can find out here.

Thanks!

@lxt: It seems to work ok for me. I have the interval set to 1 minute, and the "Ignore Wallpaper Timer" option disabled. I have one folder selected that has a bunch of gifs in it. Could you attach a screenshot of your settings?
