Import Videos & Animated GIFs to show in interactive preview
Support to import a video or animated GIFs to simulate animations or even playable video.
Incorporation of Animation either through gif or video format would be the feature that brings me and a boat load of other mobile app designers to XD full time.

Could not agree more. Not having this feature is a total non starter for me and my company's needs. We'll be stuck with Flinto until that's added to XD
Yeah. I agree with all these folk. Native support for video, animated GIFs and Edge Animate would be superb. After all this is about experience. No web is static, even the spider's blows in the wind ;)
To give XD prototypes a very realistic dimension, it would be necessary to import GIF animation, video files.
Please, add video support and settings suchs as linking video files and looping.

An export to After Effects for animation would be amazing. You could get so creative with animations from there. Then just export as animated gif or mov and import back to XD. You could just trigger the animation on click or by another event like hover. It's be nice to just import any animated gif too so that small elements (like buttons) could be simply added once created. It definitely makes a difference to anyone you're presenting to in terms of a polished looking product / idea.

This sounds great! It is very usefull to have gif or video animation.
It would be very useful to include Animations (GIF and VIDEO FORMATS) in the design. Not only to preview content but mainly to simulate mouse-over-interactions etc.
I work with many prototypes using videos, this feature would be very helpful!
Please add animated SVG too! Like those: http://www.tbyrne.org/viber-animated-svgs

Please support video for mobile app designs/prototyping.
Background Video a must for designing Websites!!! And please add a loop functionality.
You guys are awesome!
Add the functionality to also show hide.. !!!
This is a must!
Every one use icons for better understanding and communication. For message screen or placeholder prototype some time we required animated-gif icons.

I agree with everyone. If we can import a playable .gif, we can simulate interactions and reduce the requirements of the app to have multiple levels of interaction types.
I was able to import the GIF file but it won't play, it's displayed just as an image, it would be great if we could have that feature.
Please can we import videos into the prototype and also be able to use them and background videos that loop
Video is key in 2016 when selling an interface. Interactions too.
To present with or without it is a keyfactor to switch to XD.
I would like to ...
(beneath: Great work and thanks to the XD-Team !!!)
