Animated Radar isn't generated correctly

When I use the animated radar feature it isn't generated properly. It isn't neither working in my application or in browser. The timelabel and the frames are running really fast, the map is sometimes black, the water flickers and it doesn't show any clouds/rain areas. It doesn't matter when I change any of the feature parameters. Seems to occur always when I want a radar image of a city outside the US.

I use the following settings:

Example Paris, France:

Example Berlin, Germany:

Every Gif image outside the US looks like this and it's really annoying. The whole animated radar feature is useless like this.

I encounter same problem.
1) First frame shows complete image, further frames having black parts, which probably should be transparent. When extracting the frames in iOS there is no transparency though.
2) delay=100 should be 1 second, but gif is playing very fast

Was a solution found with your problem? I'm having similar issues.

We have been working on the radar code and stability and things should be in a better place.  Has it gotten better now?
