Why doesn't mastodon support gifs?
Pleroma does. Pixelfed does. Don't go extinct! #fediverse
@dansup I would (will) use videos for their compression. Did u ever consider the environmental impact of mbs stored and pushed around?
@Transflux Yes, like I mentioned, they should optimize gifs instead of expecting only jpegs and videos.
@dansup I agree on th e common format idea tho. Still smaller media means more accessibility for clients with bad connection
@Transflux If we are talking about accessibility, gifs are about a decade older than videos. Every browser supports gifs.
@dansup ok, so u mean basically the frontend?
