XAnim is an animation viewer (version 2.69.7.8)
at least 68020+WB2.04 is needed, but you don't need an X11 server running!
(Nor my libX11 link library..)

This is a port of the X11 animation viewer Xanim by Mark Podlipec.

Whats new: 
  The +Cn option (preserves workbench colors) fixed 
  (libX11 returned 8 bit color values but should have been 16 bit)
  ---
  + AVI  RGB depth 24 support added.
  + AVI XMPG support added. This is the Editable MPEG Video
  + IFF Anim8 support written by Garrick Meeker.
  + DL animation format thrown back in and now allows it to

             displayed.  Type  B  and Type P frames are currently
             ignored, but will be added in future revs.
	  +  WAV audio files may have their sound added to any animation
	     type that doesn't already have audio, by specifying the .wav
	     file after the animation file on the command line. Currently
	     only the PCM audio codec is supported.
	  +  any combination of the above  on  the  same  command line.

 The following is a list of currently supported audio formats: 

     AVI 8 and 16 bit RAW(PCM) mono/stereo.
     AVI ADPCM is supported(mono only for now).
     Quicktime 8 and 16 bit RAW(PCM) mono/stereo.
     Quicktime 8 and 16 bit TWOS(signed PCM) mono/stereo.

Like to know more of my other efforts? try:

Reported to work on:
Amiga 3000 with EGS Spectrum board (promoting XAnim)
Amiga 3000 with Picasso II (promoting Xanim)
Amiga 4000 native
Amiga 4000 with EGS Spectrum board (promoting XAnim)

Amiga 2000 with a Retina GFXBoard

So there is a slight chance it will work on others too!
