NO GIF WATCHING IN WINDOWS 7...!?!?!?!?
Still remember how pissed off I was,now I think it's the best thing that happened.
I can recommend Windows 7,Vista users(XP too) to download "Windows Mediaplayer Classic",to watch your gif animations.
It's much better than opening your animations in"Internet Explorer"or MediaPlayer,or even the regular Windows XP Photo Viewer.
"MP Classic"has many features that aren't in the usual"Windows Photo Viewer".For example,you can watch animations
frame by frame,make snapshots(so you can edit animations),and you can open almost unlimited windows,depending how fighting fit your PC is.
Set your GIF animations to open by default in "MP Classic".
It works brilliant.P.S. It can work side by side to your regular Media Player.
