    Default Animated JPEGs?

    Hi,

    the camera in my Huawei Mate 10 Pro creates what they call 'moving pictures', which seem to be 'animated JPEGs'.
    I've never encountered this image format before, actually didn't even know JPEGs can contain animations, but then I put this rather on my ignorance ;-)
    However, I noticed that IView doesn't display these animations.

    Is this feature not supported or would I have to use a certain plugin or setting?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks!

    ps. I hope my question was placed in the correct section of the board, if not, feel free to move of course

    I never heard anything about animated JPEG. I could not find any recent information either.

    Hi rookey,

    each image or video has a small code at the beginning, eg 'GIF89a' for GIF-images of 'JFIF' for JPG/JPEG-images. With an image open in IrfanView
    press F3 to show this information.
    Since Irfanview will not load your image/video, try Notepad or another text editor to get the information (drag the image/video on an open Notepad window)
    and post the code or the first 20 bytes here. May be then someone knows how this files can be viewed.
