how can I play gifs in Opera?

  • Hi everyone, 1st time posting here, I'm switching from chrome to Opera for the data savings bit I can't seem to play gifs of any kind. I tried on 4 phones so far.

    I tried looking in songs but I can't seem to find anything useful, any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Gifs are played automatically when they load. Can you post an example here (only the link)?

  • nevermind.. it was my own stupidity.. apparently this happens while using off road mode.
    maybe there should be a separate option to always enable gifs irregardless of browsing mode..

    thanks anyway

  • off-road is designed to reduce data usage, and gifs are among the biggest data hogs you can encounter on a website.
    it wouldn't really make sense to make off-road work without compressing/converting images.
