Uploading Animations

I'm hoping someone can help me with this.

 

I have an animated gif file that I would like to put on a cache page I am designing. I tried uploading the image to the reviewers note log like I do with all of the standard jpeg's htat I am also uploading for the cache page. My intention is to then write the html as an img_src for the cache page so that when people bring it up they will see the animation. I have seen this done on other cache pages and verified in the source that is how others have done it before.

 

The trouble that I am having is when I try to upload the animation, the file gets converted to a jpg file and then the animated picture does not show up, It is simply a balck box. Does anyone know what I migh tbe doing wrong or can you explain how to upload a gif file so that it does not get converted to a jpg?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

could these possibly be older caches? At one time you could upload just about any file type to a cache page (it wasn't uncommon to see .doc files, for example). Not any more. Now the website converts all images to jpeg format, and will only accept a small number of image formats (why can't we use png? :) ).
