Open Bug 1289954 (streaming-gif) Opened 6 years ago Updated 8 months ago

Play back animated images using streaming decoding


(Core :: Graphics: ImageLib, enhancement, P5)





(Reporter: seth, Unassigned)


(Blocks 2 open bugs)


This is a metabug for the overall project of playing back animated images using streaming decoding. We want to get to the point where decoders can generate frames one at a time when the animated image compositor needs them, so that the only memory cost of animated images is the compositing surfaces that we actually display.

(I'm using the alias "streaming-gif" for this bug, even though it applies to animated PNGs as well, purely in the interest of brevity.)

Most of the dependent bugs look fixed now. Is this still something you're thinking of working on?

Andrew, is this project still happening? I came across it in triage and it seemed possibly close to completion.

I don't think this will be prioritized any time soon. With AVIF, we will explore decoding images within the media framework which could implement this.
