Why doesn't mastodon support gifs?
Pleroma does. Pixelfed does. Don't go extinct! #fediverse
@dansup better compression ?
@Transflux File storage is so cheap though, and if mastodon cared about federated gifs they would transcode/optimize them instead of showing a link.
It's nice to see new projects embrace common formats.
@Transflux Yes, like I mentioned, they should optimize gifs instead of expecting only jpegs and videos.
