    How to create a screen
    1. Place down blocks to hold your item frames
    2. Place down the item frames you want to use for the image
    3. Upload an animation or image (.GIF | .PNG) or find one online. It should be rectangular or it will be stretched. Note: Due to a bug in some Java versions, JPEG images might not look like the original image
      1. For local image files, just specify the full file path (e.g. C:\\Users\\Me\\myImage.png)
    4. Run the create command above with a custom name and the url to the image. You can also specify the path to a local file.
      1. Use shorteners like bitly if the link to your image is too long.
    5. Follow the instructions you get in the chat:
      1. Right click the bottom-left item frame and wait
      2. Right click the top-right item frame and wait for your image to load

    How to remove a screen
    To remove a screen, run the remove command and specify the name


    How it works - No lags
    This plugin does not cause the expected lag/framerate issues you would expect.
    It doesn't update the picture every frame (doing that would cause a lot of frame rate issues), it only updates the map item contained in the item frame.
    The actual frames of the animation are only sent once with a little delay to prevent any lag issues.

    I use this for billboards every day. It still works great with 1.12.2, and has almost no lag when used correctly. I am really hoping this will work with the new 1.13 update. Thank you inventivetalent!

    Very good plugin, except it does lag quite a bit. If you have anything under about 3-4 gb of ram I'd say don't run this plugin.

    The plugin is a bit buggy but as Jari said we can get gifs working with Imgoat.com :D
    Hopefully this plugin will be kept updated <3

    I changed my mind, it's excellent now, images will load, you will just need to restart your server... They will save upon restart and there ain't FPS drops even on poor PCs (You will just need to use Optifine :P)
