Gif file won't play unless I click on it Answered

I was wanting to put a gif file in my instructable, so I uploaded it, but then when I previewed my instructable it did not work unless I clicked on the image. I do not know if I am doing something incorrectly, or if now gifs do not work unless you click on the image. I don't think people will see the gif if this is true, since you have to go and click on the picture for you to actually see the gif play. Does anyone know what is wrong?

That's weird for it to stop working. Mine is new and not even published yet.

The Robot gifeth and the Robot taketh away...

Image notes were also the first thing to get out of whack whenever they updated the system.

I successfully added a gif to an ible about a month ago but now I'm having this issue. My gif works in this one.

But it doesn't work unless clicked on in this one. It's the first image in the last step.

They were both created in Google Photos. Any suggestions or solutions?
