    Today my friend posted a animated GIF file as her avatar icon. I wanted to see if anyone knows of anymore...

    It looks pretty cool.

    ask your friend what the size of the GIF is. ive tried over and over to get a gif to work as a BBM icon and its never worked. please post it up here if you can, ill try to figure out if theres a size restriction and hopefully generate answers.

    I have some animated GIFs posted on my website, they were created for my app Leave It On, not sure if they are going to work or not. I've been unable to get the GIF above working on mine.

    Ok I did a little more testing here, I had just randomly picked the Cartman gif (in link in my last post) and assigned it to my profile in BBM, it doesnt animate in the contact list or in chat, but if one of my contacts clicks the pic in the profile it animates. I was also able to verify it by adding myself as a contact and looking at it.

    i have tried about 10 different ones. i have enlarged and downsized but only one of them works i think it is to do with how many frames are in the gif file if theres more then 10 i dont think it will work not 100% on that tho someone can give it ago and check too? u can find gif files by just google avatar gif or gif images then search using there image database

    The specs of the gif posted by LocalCelebrity are 20kb, 320x320, and 18 frames. Plenty of instant messaging emoticons will fall under these specs. I've tried a bunch, and they only animate when enlarged. I'm assuming the "thumbnail" version never animates.

    From what I have found. In order to get an animated gif to work, you have to tell your contact to select your profile and the highlight your avatar. Then tell them to hit their menu and select enlarge picture. That bring up your picture in its own screen. Its not very practical and its a pain to have your avatar do something funny and ruin it by having to explain to someone how to see it (My guy pours gas on himself and lights himself on fire). I think the only way this can be fixed is through a BBM update.

    It works on the gifs on the link that Shao posted but they are small. I tried several, including the cartman one, and they work the way I described.

    Hey, if you guys are still looking for the correct size .gif needs to be saved, I got a popup on my screen while attempting to get a .gif to work and it said: "A file must meet the following requirements for it to animate in BBM: Less than 32kb
    Square Dimensions"

    Hope that helps.
