On Developer Community put animated GIFs behind a play/pause button

For animated GIFs it would be neat if the DC software could use a technique such as this to automatically add a play/pause button:

That Codepen sample plays such GIFs by default unless user's browser preference is set for reduced motion (see the JS in the sample), but by not setting the 'open' attribute on the details tag (line 5 of the HTML in the sample) it could always start paused.

The technique relies on having a static image containing one frame of the animated GIF, so that would need to be done server-side when an animated GIF is uploaded.

    Thank you for the suggestion! We have reviewed the possibility of implementing this idea, but unfortunately the proposed option is not compatible with our current architecture. However, we will add it to our future plans and aim to implement it at a later time.
