GIF support on windows

  • Hello!

    I'm having some issues developing a desktop application when I try to use gif animations. I've finished the QTCreator together mingw (5.3) update but the problem persists. I tried to update mingw to last version, but QTCreator didn't found some mingw libs and fail to identify the compiler. I only have version 5.3 available here.

    When the application is executed and it tries to render a gif, this error is thrown:

    qrc:/views/auth.qml:82:9: QML AnimatedImage: Error Reading Animated Image File file://c/projects/almoxarifado/build-almoxarifado-Desktop_Qt_5_12_3_MinGW_32_bit-Debug/debug/media/interface/icon_wait_auth.gif

    I create a folder plugin/imageformats with all image libs, but not worked.

    Someone could help me?

    Best regards!

    Please use windeployqt. It should prepare all the needed files to go with your application so it can be executed properly.
