Having issues with this on Linux Mint 18.3. Made a forum post here [0], but not much activity esp. since Mint dropped KDE. [0] https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=276018&sid=6acbceb6f0c7adcc692beaeb7c94124c

Linux Mint 18.3 problems:
- 'slows down the whole system. Most noticeable in the application menu, where I have to hover the mouse pointer over a new menu for sometimes 10 seconds before it expands.'
- 'obvious until it's been running for hours.'

By my knowledge, Linux Mint 18.3 has something like:
- Qt 5.6
- KF 5.36
- Plasma 5.8

At here, Arch Linux with:
- Qt Version: 5.12
- KF 5.53
- Plasma 5.14

After few hours I can't reproduce those problems.

The plugin is using code directly from the AnimatedImage QML Type: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtquick-animatedimage.html

The problems could depend the gif. I tested with the vista.gif from the https://store.kde.org/p/1031919/.

Another source of the problems could be the older Qt/plasma. There are bug reports of the memory leak:
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=368838
- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=394962

Maybe same workarounds/solutions work with the other wallpaper types.

You may want to file a wish/bug report to the KDE bug tracker. At here the activity switcher/manager only show the preview of the wallpaper if it is plain color or simple image.
