Now, let’s figure out why it didn’t work for the first time…
Making it happen
First, go to VIDM Management Console -> Identity and Access Management -> [Setup] -> Custom Branding.
Then upload the background image. …Except that the upload dialog doesn’t take the animated GIFs!
>> upload a JPEG or PNG image
So, what we need is called APNG – animated PNG. There is a lot of resources that allow converting multiple images, animated GIFs or even MP4 or YouTube videos to APNGs. Here’s the one I’ve used: EzGIF.
After converting your favorite flick, ensure to check the size – in my experiments one of the files was 56MB large (for a 10-second clip)! Once happy – upload the PNG file to the VIDM.
If your animations fits – the preview will be animated. If the preview is still – something about your file is wrong.
Also note that not every browser supports APNG. I’ve tested latest Chrome and Firefox – they work.
That is basically it. You can see the examples (no guarantee that they’ll stay, though):
You can now build snazzy Workspace ONE demos and blow your customers away with the awesome visuals! Go for it! Happy Friday! 🙂
