I am trying to display a gif file on pyqt.It shows but doesnt animate.It is static.How can make it animate?

This is the code i used:

pic=QtGui.QPixmap("./IRREGULAR/"+ui.lineEdit.text()+".gif")
ui.label_9.setPixmap(pic)

I don't think pyqt can handle animated gifs. You could use wxPython's wx.animate.GIFAnimationCtrl widget.

Thank you .This code is what i need.But what is the licencing problem?İ make simple programs and i share ,i dont sell them.Is it against the licence stuff?

Better late than never ...

# use PyQt to play an animated gif
# added buttons to start and stop animation
# tested with PyQt4.4 and Python 2.5
# also tested with PyQt4.5 and Python 3.0

        self.movie.start()

        self.movie.stop()


app = QApplication(sys.argv) 
player = MoviePlayer() 
player.show() 
sys.exit(app.exec_())
