These changes for processing videos and GIFs are now active for every Mastodon server hosted on Masto.host.
There have been no reported issues and from the backend it all looks good. Also, no peak load monitored on the platform. So, up until now it looks like a good solution.
Again, if you notice any issues with federated GIFs or videos please let me know.
