It should work great if you reduce the size to 100 x 100

You should be able to use it, in user CP, edit avatar, upload from your computer.
Mine is a .gif

Edit: Good point Doc, I missed that when I looked at the properties.

An animated avatar cannot exceed 100 x 100 pixels. Yours is too big. I've resized it here Free Online Image Editor

Briefly tried as my avatar, and it does animate.
