That's sort of odd. I'm using an animated gif as a custom "busy" 
indicator in a similar way, it's shown while a longer activity is 
happening. I just imported it and set it to loop, then set its visible 
to false. When I want an indicator I set it to visible, when the 
activity is finished I hide it again. I don't need to manage the 
framerate or anything else. It just works.
