Can't run animated GIF into VS Ultimate 2020

Post by NYCBirdy »

Hi!
I try the chat support and they tell me to add as a video for my animated gif but it will not import it. I try to insert as a "Digital Media"...the gif is still recognized as "Photo". Help!

Can you play GIF files in any other program, Win 10 does not include a built-in GIF viewer.
