Play videos in feed

We should be able to play videos in the feed. When there’s a short GIF or something, it takes away from the joke when you have to leave Lemmy to open it.

I think mp4s might work in the post thumbnails, but not sure about gifs.

Apparently gifs don’t play while the thumbnail is small, but they start playing when you click on the thumbnail to expand. You can see it with this gif for example (I uploaded that some months ago): https://lemmygrad.ml/post/4101

Oh! Neat! Ok, so just long videos don’t work. In other words, that you can’t have youtube (or other webpage) players embedded? I might not be using that word correctly, but hopefully you know what i mean
