Live Photos on the Web

Ever since Live Photos launched with the iPhone 6s, I've wanted a way to display Live Photos outside of Apple's closed garden. I spent some time over the weekend writing a web component to make Apple's Live Photos work on the web. 

What I found out is that there are good reasons others haven't done this before: it's difficult to deliver a magical Live Photo experience in a way that is both simple and doesn't put large demands on the user's bandwidth and computing resources. There are some demo Live Photos including some related to bitcoin and blockstack.
