I'm running pd extended 0.43.4 on Ubuntu 13.10. I've install gmerlin in order to load animated gifs into GEM with [pix_film]

When playing them the gifs only play once and don't loop unless the open message is triggered again.

See attached patch for example

    Apologies for the broken gif in the bug report. It appears Sourceforeg reencodes gifs.

    I've done more investigation and I think there are issues in either GEM, gmerlin or how Imagemagick creates gifs.

    Here is the original gif file http://i.imgur.com/npym0Bq.gif

    For completeness I reencoded it in imagemagick http://i.imgur.com/WvBNnZ4.gif (convert originalgif.gif -coalesece images.png ; convert images*.png newgif.gif)

    Here is the new gif, saved in GIMP http://i.imgur.com/51YOrMS.gif I've attached a screenshot of the parameters I used when svaing the gif in GIMP

    When the new/GIMP gif is opened in PD it loops.

    Where could the problem be?
