H2R Graphics: Image -> Animated GIF

I tried to use an animated gif as image in the image tab. If I chose it as “local file” nothing happens. Sometimes after a restart of h2r graphics the image is there, but most of the time not.
If I add it from URL it gets added twice. And if the image is live, the app is getting really laggy and doesn’t response as fast it normally do.

Is there another way to display a video or gif as a background and loop it with h2r graphics?
