As discussed here:
Because my site is large as heck and people LOVE to hotlink stuff, particularly Very Large Images and gifs, I have turned off
download remote images to local. The problem is, we’re also using the Discourse Gifs component, so 99% of the gifs we include are remote linked.
Would it be possible to make that educated guess mentioned above and enable the gif pauser magic to images hosted on the top gif hosting sites like giphy and tenor? It makes sense not to have to guess about things hosted everywhere, but those are very good educated guess territory. Without it, our site really won’t benefit from this magic, and it has been requested a LOT as an accessibility thing.
