I made a short non-looping clip I want to play on button click but not sure if I should import it as an avi or animated gif. One post I read said that the playbook does not yet fully support video playback.
P.S. using Burrito
Solved! Go to Solution.

@studiochris: What advantages does that player offer? I use GIFs all the time without that and they always work fine.
@RapsFan: What do you mean PlayBook doesn't yet fully support video playback?

Flash Player supports the GIF format perfectly, as long as it isn't an animated GIF. With animated GIFs, only the first frame is shown. The linked class plays the rest of the frames and gives you an interface to control the playback as you would control a video.

I don't know if it's true or not but someone on another forum was having trouble getting an avi they imported into flash to play on the Playbook simulator and someone replied saying the PB doesn't yet have full video support.
Don't know if that's true though.

Ah, I see. I generally just convert an animated GIF to a movieclip, but it's interesting to see that I have the option of playing at as a GIF with that.
@rapsfan: Interesting. Thanks for that tidbit.
