I have an ILI9341 touch-display that I would like to use to display short clips of video. I am using an ESP32 Dev Module to drive it and have set up the board according to this video by @xtronical (I'm hoping that's his actual account and not just some other guy...) In his video he showed me how to use the tft_espi library by @bodmer to draw things on screen and even display jpegs from the sd card that is part of the touchscreen.
I have tried countless ways to display video on this display, from showing jpegs one after another (much too slow, has a wave effect) to using the AnimatedGIF library by Louis Banks, which I was surprised to find worked first try with gifs uploaded into the SPIFFS library. However, I couldn't get it to display gifs off of the sd card, until I changed the adafruit_gfx_sdcard example to use the tft_espi library. It then resulted in a very off-colour version of my gif, which I then tried to correct by converting the color format. One of my gifs works just fine, another didn't change and a third is filling in random pixels with blank white!
Is the AnimatedGIF library the way to go? Can I make it work fast enough and with the right colour? Please advise.
P.S. Cruddy video quality doesn't bother me. I'd take 5 fps any day. Also, I'm pretty new at this forum; was Project Guidance the right type for this post? I tried to find 'tft' and 'video' but no dice.
