Import Videos & Animated GIFs to show in interactive preview
Support to import a video or animated GIFs to simulate animations or even playable video.
Hello everyone! I’m excited to announce that in XD 45 (released today 10/26), you will be able to import MP4 video into your XD designs.
To ensure platform compatibility and performance across desktop, web and mobile preview, your video must be:
under 15 MB
4K or under resolution.
Enjoy and we can’t wait to see what you create!
XD does not support Animated GIF, so if you are still looking for that, please start a separate request and vote on it.
Is it still not possible?! I really need to use GIFs in the presentation! Does anyone know a trick (for dummy's) to show a GIF in eg. the online version?
Animated gif or video backgrounds to help sell the concept that im proposing. Ultimately I would love to reference a venmo or youtube link
Add animation and video features in XD!
UI/UX design prototype without animate is just illusion, so bring it and make it happen into XD

Top priority feature
Seems to me this request should probably be split into two separate features (Video, and Animated GIF). I'd take the animated GIF first, so that I can simulate loaders/spinners.

This is a must! I thought it already existed, but thats why I'm here...
yes animated gif is much easier to work with
@AdobeXd Maybe we can start with just animated GIF support?
Video could be local, or on the web via URL stream (could be a live stream as well)
1. Add a new "Video container" type of object
2. Double-click for a popup asking for location of file, or URL
The content could load right away. Xd could take a snapshot of it so that it doesn't slow things down in Design mode, but in Proto mode it would of course show live content.
There would also be more options, like enabling/disabling full screen.
Video and sound for mobil, tablet and websites… a must.

I would like to be able to use animated gifs in Xd
I would like to add that when a gif is imported into the design it would be great if the corresponding window/menu in XD allows you to specify "AUTO-PLAY" or "START ANIMATION ON CLICK/TAP" option. But if this is a wish list, it would be even better to use the TIMELINE window/menu/tab group from PS in XD.
I agree. Right now it's the only thing stopping me from using XD over InVision.
I agree, this feature is a must-have in nowadays (web)design!
I need this feature also... and soon! Without, this software, it is akin to a low-grade Apple iBooks Author program.
The use of video or at least animation to show engaging content ideas is something i really need.
We commonly talk about having video backgrounds or conversational components and simply cannot test our ideas

100% agree - i'm a hardcore motion-graphics animator and would like to create custom transitions and individual object animations that i can import / embed / set to loop etc. even embedding a .mov file onto an artboard to simulate the transition between artboards would be cool.
