Mastodon feature request:

If a GIF file is below a certain size threshold, don't reprocess it into a video. Converting GIFs to video wrecks animated pixel art, charts, etc, and the things that look the worst as videos are also often the smallest GIFs, precisely because they work with that format's limitations.

@eishiya Does this also happen if you use animate PNGs? Does mastodon support animated PNGs?

@arefgee I haven't a clue because the software I use doesn't support APNG. If you've got one handy, it's worth a try :D?

@eishiya Ok, will try. I'll tag you once I post something.
