Animated SVG files does not animate in Gwenview

Hello dear ones,
I’m reposting here a question posted on the old KDE forum by @saidbakr. I have the same question and there is no answer - namely, Gwenview can open animated SVGs, but the image remains fixed. So is there an extension or plugin that can open these animated files? - . I have Gwenview version 23.04.3.

Animated SVG files does not animate

Gwenview can open svg files but files that has animation it open statically without animation. Is there any plugin that allows those files to animate in Gwenview? I have Gwenview version 21.12.3 on Kubuntu 22.04.

Best Regards,
Said Bakr.

Only certain types of animations are supported by the underlying Qt SVG that Gwenview uses, funortunately. It’s not really fixable, but developers are looking into other solutions.
