Can you post the command you use to play the pngs? Can mplayer output
an avi or mpg, or does it just animate the images.
i use something like this:
mencoder mf://*.png -mf type=png:w=600:h=500:fps=10 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=wmv2 -oac copy -o animation.avi
it creates an avi file as you can probably guess... initially i started to play with animated images (gifs) but they would be waaaay too large for my purposes...
..you can play with lots of settings in the line above... for example the dimensions of your images will probably be different... the codec you use might also vary.. i wanted something that would be usable by many windows users.. (note that with wmv2 some still have to get codec updates).. note that this command will use all the images in the current working directory..
finally, mencoder comes with mplayer.. .the easiest is to do:
apt-get install mplayer
this will work for debian users, and redhat/fedora (althought you would have to get apt-get first - try here: http://apt.freshrpms.net/ )...
