I/ArchitectWebView(24253): Image (5): Format not suppor


Since wikitude 3.2 SDK its giving me I/ArchitectWebView(24253): Image (5): Format not supported when trying to load a GIF file.

Have you dropped GIF support?


We switched to a more flexible and robust resource caching and image loading. With this transistion we also dropped support for GIF as the preferred image formats are PNG and JPEG.

I suggest to convert them to PNG. If you feel the GIF support should be added in a future SDK version please let us know why other formats are not an option for your usecase.


It is not for me to decide your politics.

Still, Gif is used in HTML contents. So scrapping the web can be a pain now.

If I were you, I will reinclude GIF. I also love PNG but world is not perfect.

About the new SDK; it works much much better with 3d reloading models (with 3.1 won't show a model with a reloaded scenario) and seems to work faster too.

So, thanks a lot for the explanation.

Hope this helps.
