Before you start

If your app targets versions older than API 18, you can override the minSdkVersion by adding this line to your manifest file:

<uses-sdk tools:overrideLibrary="com.otaliastudios.gif" />

In this case you should check at runtime that API level is at least 18, before calling any method here.

Compressing your first GIF

Compression happens through the GIFCompressor class by passing it an output file path, and one of more input data sources. It’s pretty simple:

        .addDataSource(context, uri) // or...
        .addDataSource(context, filePath) // or...
        .addDataSource(context, fileDescriptor) // or...
        .setListener(new GIFListener() {
             public void onGIFCompressionProgress(double progress) {}
             public void onGIFCompressionCompleted() {}
             public void onGIFCompressionCanceled() {}
             public void onGIFCompressionFailed(@NonNull Throwable exception) {}

However, we offer many APIs and additional features on top that you can read about in the in-depth documentation.
