I don't think it does. I wrote a patch to make gdkpixbufdec handle
animated gifs ages ago, but if I remember correctly I didn't push it
because all images had to be decoded into memory, which would have made
it easy to construct files that use ridiculous amounts of memory or make
the app crash.

Perhaps there's something in gst-ffmpeg that doesn't have this problem.
