APNG vs. WebM
More browsers support [ WebM] (Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Opera; IE9+ and Safari with plugins) than [ APNG] (Firefox, Safari). Since both formats fulfill the same purpose in practice, we should consider the addition of WebM support and replace our APNG stuff with WebM files.

:WebM is a video format. I doubt replacing thousands of animated PNGs with videos is an adequate solution, due to MediaWiki's terrible video handling capabilities. (We can't even put Pokémon cries on their pages, let alone 20 videos.) --[[User:Abcboy|Abcboy]] ([[User talk:Abcboy|talk]]) 15:53, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
::A video is a moving visual image so animated image files are indistinguishable from video files as far as most people are concerned. They're both a bunch of frames being moved sequentially at a certain rate. And how is MediaWiki poor at handling this? Wikipedia and TCRF seem to manage it just fine.
