We need a Flash player than can **play any animated GIF** it receives as input:
* We will pass the URL of an animated GIF to the Flash player as a Flash variable.
* The Flash player needs to retrieve the animated GIF and play it.
* The animation must be replicated exactly in Flash, including the exact time spent on each frame.
o Because Flash does not have native support for animated GIFs, we believe this will require unpacking the animated GIF frame-by-frame, etc.
* The animation should loop forever in the Flash player.
* The Flash player must fail gracefully
o If the input cannot be unpacked, the first frame should be displayed.
o If the input is a static image, just display the image.
