[markdown] Is there a way to add a gif to a Markdown file?

I want to add this gif to a GitHub flavored markdown file. If it can't be done in GitHub, is it possible to do it in another version of markdown?

This question is related to markdown gif github-flavored-markdown

The answer is

Showing gifs need two things

1- Use this syntax as in these examples

![Alt Text](https://media.giphy.com/media/vFKqnCdLPNOKc/giphy.gif)


Alt Text

2- The image url must end with gif

3- For posterity: if the .gif link above ever goes bad, you will not see the image and instead see the alt-text and URL, like this:

Alt Text

4- for resizing the gif you can use this syntax as in this Github tutorial link

<img src="https://media.giphy.com/media/vFKqnCdLPNOKc/giphy.gif" width="40" height="40" />
