Included "video/*" in image request Accept header if the browser supports video media in image contexts

Way more detail: https://calendar.perfplanet.com/2017/animated-gif-without-the-gif/

TL;DR: <img src="ottawa-river.mp4">

If there is a spec, please post it here.

I do think this is controversial, but its got to be tracked, right?

More resources:


<picture>
  <source type="video/mp4" srcset="adorable-cat.mp4">
  <!-- perhaps even an animated WebP fallback here as well -->
  <img src="adorable-cat.gif" alt="adorable cat tears throat out of owner and eats his eyeballs">
</picture>

Imho seems like a good solution, but maybe instead of WebP fallback APNG for higher quality and browser support: https://caniuse.com/#feat=webp vs https://caniuse.com/#feat=apng
