I can't figure out a reason why Mastodon doesn't transcode remote GIF's, but for some reason it doesn't. Seems like a bug.
https://git.blob.cat/blobcatservices/blobcatstodon/src/branch/master/app/models/media_attachment.rb looks like it handles both local and remote media attachments, and I don't see it singling out local media for GIF transcoding only
Hey #Mastodon admins, do you like your media backups to take hundreds of gigabytes? If not, maybe consider supporting this issue: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/12910 #mastoadmin #mastodev
why you gotta do me like that
the queue is only going up even after I fixed the underlying problem
is there really no way to set a custom directory for Mastodon media storage? #mastoadmin
(I feel like I'm missing something obvious)
what does the number on the right mean? #mastoadmin
