I'd look at a Rasberry Pi for this round.
But why stop with only a GIF player? Some players will loop on other video types.
i'm looking for a small portable hd player that will allow me to loop animated gif files on a tv screen indefinitely, for the purpose of an art installation.
i've found lots of mini hd players available online for $30-$50 that claim to handle .gif files, but upon trying one (made my Micca) it turns out they just display the .gif as a still image without the animation. can anyone recommend a player that does play animated gifs?
i really didn't think it would be so difficult to find a solution to this simple display problem, but i've been looking for a while with no luck. also it needs to be an affordable solution, so like, not an ipad or cell phone, my budget won't cover that.
thanks for any suggestions.
