C# Question

GIF as icon for my Windows Forms Application

I'm using Visual Studio 2015, and I'm trying to create a simple Media Player application. I was wondering, however, if it is possible to use an animated GIF file for the Icon that displays in the top left corner of the application itself, as pointed out in this picture. The language I am using is C#. Can anyone tell me if this is possible, and, if so, how I would go about achieving this?

Okay, there seems to be some confusion about what I'm asking, so perhaps I should provide some further details...The application I am designing is just a simple media player that is designed to play .wav files assigned to specific buttons. The application isn't a browser, or anything like that. The picture I provided was actually cropped down from this picture [here]. I apologize, as I am new to programming, and everything I have learned up to this point, I learned through the Great And Powerful YOUTUBE. ^.^
If you guys need any further information, let me know, and I'll provide what I can! Thanks again!!!

Oops, I did the wrong image! I'm sorry! This is the correct image. My apologies!

Wow, that's where I got confusing...the site changed the title of my post automatically and I didn't catch it. So sorry, all...


Simple answer, NO.

But you can create a sequence of icons that represent your animation and change them periodically to giv the user the sensation of animation. I just cant attest that it will be smooth enougth.
