Evince animate pdf in gnome+wayland

I notice that a evince can’t display the animation of a pdf:

The pdf was generated with latex beamer. Is it related to wayland?

I think animation support was removed from the pdf standard a year or two ago/ it was shaky to begin with and not all pdf viewers supported it anyway. Often they used some tricks to get it working which I could imagine no longer working under wayland. If you want to ‘properly’ use a PDF as presentation medium including movies/animations, I’d highly recommend using https://pdfpc.github.io/
