Loading Animated GIFS iOS

Hello,
I’ve tried ofxGIF and ofxGifDecoder to simply load an animated .gif file on an iPad with no luck. I’ve also tried just loading the gif file in the ios video player example with no luck. Anyone have any tips to load animated gifs for an iOS openframework project? Thanks in advance.

Have yet to find an answer, but if anyone needs a quick fix I decided to use ofxImageSequencer which loads textures into sequences. Works well enough for my application.
