Do you support non-network paths

Does GIFPlayer support source paths that are not remote? For instance, if I have a local gif, can I enter the path to that file in the source attribute of your control?

Hi johnmurphy01,

First thank you a lot for your interest about this control.

Then, yes, you can enter local path in the source attribute.

For example, if the file named giphy.gif is in the Assets folder then you can display it with the control like this :
<gif:GIF x:Name="gifContainer" Source="ms-appx:///Assets/giphy.gif"></gif:GIF>
Be careful to set the gif file to "copy to destination folder" in properties.

Hope this helps
