Support .webm Files for Profile/User Card Backgrounds


#1

I’ve already enabled the extension in the settings but it doesn’t seem to display:

Example file: http://zippy.gfycat.com/QueasyMediocreGraywolf.webm (e.g. Cube Simulation GIF | Create, Discover and Share on Gfycat)

.webm has somewhat sketchy availability

but at least it’s better than .webp

I do not believe that webms can be used as a background-image in CSS; the specifications (in the future) only allow for any data that can be loaded in an <image> tag.

Closing this, flag to re-open when webm is wildly available and in the CSS spec.
