Hello folks!

Dolphin, as you know, has this really nifty feature in the "Information" pane that allows you to see files quickly without having to open them, hit some preview key or context menu entry, etc. It's nice! However, right now it only shows the first frame for GIFs. This is fine they're non-animated and/or if you don't have, say, 6 animated GIFs in a folder that only slightly vary. You can probably think of other use cases where a full-length thumbnail of animated GIFs would be useful :)

Please include this in Dolphin.

Thank you for all your *wonderful* work on KDE4! Keep it up, folks! =D

Also, thank you for your time,

[dolphin] Animate gifs on preview

Adds the capability to view animated images on the preview in the information panel.
This was a request from a user back in 2009 (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=182257), but I think nowadays with stickers/memes and what not, it's even more useful.
It keeps the size default transition of the preview viewer before starting the animation, so that the visual integration is smoother.

FIXED-IN: 19.11.80

Test Plan: Open the information panel and hover over some animated images (gif/webp/mng)
