While searching the internet on how to use gifs or animated pngs as playlist covers/profile pictures I came to an answer pretty fast: It doesn't work. Everywhere I looked it was the same answer:
Spotify only supports jpeg files. You can't animate a jpeg file as it won't support multiple layers and so on. Therefore you can only use static images.
But then I stumbled upon this playlist:
This is so far the only playlist that uses an actual animated file. If there are more please let me know!
I've tried everything to somehow convert a gif I want to use to a file that spotify accepts.
Then I came across this profile which uses an animated profile picture:
This got me thinking that there is a way to either trick spotify into thinking it's a jpeg while in reality it's some animated file or to completely bypass the file check.
All I want to do is using a gif for a playlist cover. Could anyone help me out? What do you think about those links I've posted? Do you got any other profiles/playlists that contain animations?
