I have this gif:
I wish to set it as my lock screen image, but I am unable to do so because if I go into Settings > Background, and then go to the Pictures tab, I am only able to see still images in the
Pictures folder, even though my gif is in there. As is made clear in this bug report, they are not going to fix that.
So I am still wondering how to set this gif as a lock screen image, or convert this gif into something that can be used that way. How can I do this? Is there any way to convert a gif into many still image files and then some how automatically edit that XML configuration file to make the animation work and show on the lock screen?
