This thing needs to happen

I have always been a big fan of Jpeg xr over the normal Jpeg and now to see this animated idea is just another reason to use jpeg xr. Gif animations are usually huge files for just a few frames. I've been experimenting with the provided executables and have been able to make animated jpeg-xrs that have a file size ratio of 10:1 compared to a gif of the same animation, not to mention how good it looks compared to a grainy/banding gif. I've also been playing with 1080p Jpeg-xr videos, and am blown away with the file sizes of around 50-70MB for 1,440 frames in 1080p (about a minute at 24fps and a quality setting of 0.7).

GIFS have been around since 1987 and we are in great need of a replacement or atleast an alternative. Crazy that it has taken this long to change our ways.

Awesome effort myutwo33

I'm sure Imgur, 4Chan, and the rest of the internet would love this.
