I’ve mentioned the SDWebImage library providing a UIImageView category with support for asynchronous downloading and caching.

Here’s a very nice image view component called KIChameleonView from kainnui that automatically detects the type of media to display, and even allows you to load the media from a remote URL using SDWebImage.

KIChameleonView works with standard static images, animated gif files, and videos. You simply need to provide the location and KIChameleonView will do the rest.

This is an image showing Nyan Cat running in a KIChameleonView:

KIChameleonView

Displayed using the code:

NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@"http://raphaelschaad.com/static/nyan.gif"];
[chameleonView setImageWithURL:url];

You can find KIChameleonView on Github here.

A nice way to easily display and download different types of media.
