Inserted GIF animation works but not when saved as PDF

Hi.

I have inserted a GIF in a Writer document. It worked and it plays as it should. Then converted to PDF and it just shows the first frame. It does not play.

Then I've tried the same with Impress, with the same result.

Any chances it works when saved as PDF?

Thanks!

What do you mean by "converted to PDF?"
Did you Export to PDF, or print to a PDF printer, or?
Please attach a sample document.

Thanks!

I'm having trouble inserting MP4 files in Impress too so I was looking for another solution.
