Trouble uploading a GIF Image!

Well, I'm making an Instructable on Flash Animation. For the Intro, I want to put a GIF Image of an animation I made. While uploading the file, my computer froze up a couple of times. Everytime I see the Instructable, My comp freezes. The file is 1.44mb. I was wondering If its too big. And what other method can I use to show it. Perhaps a Youtube video?

Just give your browser some time to load. The problem is that our gif animation processor makes the files really big. It's probably something we need to look into. The animation is pretty funny.

. You're running out of memory. Shut down some programs and/or buy more RAM.

well, what I mean is, If it got me trouble, maybe other people will have trouble watching the instructable. I'll try putting through a URL, or make a Youtube video.
