To explain motion related issues or adding screen recordings to answers it would be powerful to enable gif embedding. While answering this question I've noticed that this is currently not possible.

Is this possible?

Edit: As Professor Sparkles mentioned this is possible. You can:

  1. optional: upload your movie e.g. to gfycat to convert it to a gif
  2. copy the direct link enter image description here
  3. click on insert image and paste you link enter image description here

This will automatically upload your gif to imgur.com and insert it into the post.

If there is a way to enable animated gifs for the StackExchange image hosts I would be all for it. For now you can just upload your gif to imgur or a similar image host and embed the direct link here.
