[Bug] Android app doesn't display ANY image after adding Fresco in React Native 0.59.9

See original GitHub issue


My React Native app was working perfectly until I needed GIF support in Android. I’ve added Fresco and no images are (even existing JPEGs and PNGs that used to display before adding Fresco) are displayed (they’re just blank) and I’m getting many errors about com.facebook.imagepipeline.nativecode.NativeJpegTranscoderFactory not found.


  • Have a React Native project. (0.59.9)
  • Add the following to build.gradle:

implementation 'com.facebook.fresco:animated-gif:1.12.0'

  • Sync the project.

Additional Information

  • Fresco version: 1.12
  • Platform version: Android 8.1

I’ve also seen but I don’t understand the solution or what to do.

I am facing the same issue with RN 0.59.8 below is the code but still not showing images. implementation ‘com.facebook.fresco:nativeimagetranscoder:1.12.0’

// For animated GIF support
compile 'com.facebook.fresco:animated-gif:1.10.0'

// For WebP support, including animated WebP
compile 'com.facebook.fresco:animated-webp:1.10.0'
compile 'com.facebook.fresco:webpsupport:1.10.0'

// For WebP support, without animations
compile 'com.facebook.fresco:webpsupport:1.10.0'

It is on bintray / jCenter though, so it should work:
