Animated GIFs broken

Recommended Posts

Existing animated GIFs on my other caches are working fine, but if I upload a new one to a cache description, all I get is the first frame. As an example check out the image below, which is stored on GC's image server at s3.amazonaws.com and should be animating. I have tried appending "_l" to the file name, that didn't work either. It appears that the full GIF is not stored on the image server.

 

How do I get animated GIFs working again? Or is there a fault with GC?

The image upload system modifies gif files to static images for "security reasons" as stated earlier. You have to upload the image to some alternate service. For example it is possible to use Dropbox if you do not have own server.
