comment:5 Changed 18 months ago by ami_stuff

too bad that this got not implemented for so many years. even virtualdub seems to support iff anims internally (well, support is buggy, but at least they tried ;) )

Replying to richardpl:

There is always bounty button.

well, one can still use some other software to decode iff anim, but it would BE NICE to have it supported in ffmpeg - maybe in the next 10 years someone will decide to implement it for free just for fun, who knows
