    I'm having a bizarre issue on one of my most recent posts in that the .GIF file doesn't seem to be loading. Checking on Imageshack the file definitely loads and plays as expected, however if I right click the broken image in the post and open that in a new tab it doesn't load. I've tried this while signed in, signed out and on my mobile browser as well as on PC and I get the same result on all of them. I even sent the Imageshack link to my wife who was very confused as to why she was being sent a GIF of a truck crashing.

    Have I done something wrong that may have caused this to fail to load?

    It's too large. The maximum size of an image or GIF you can embed into a post is 10MB, and that GIF is 12.6MB.

    For larger movie-like GIFs, it's better to use a service like Gfycat and then just paste the link so it embeds as an MP4 in a web player:

    Thanks Jordan, I wasn't aware there was a limit on the size. I'll update the post :tup:
