placing .gifs in text

I have read how to post gifs on this site, but I can't get that to work for me. I tried using Gfycat and everytime I try and upload the images I get an error saying This isn't an animated gif, so I am wondering. How do you all out there record and save them? As I recorded it, used Premiere Pro to convert to Gif and tried that.

• On gfycat, click the paperclip icon and you should see 4 textareas, the second one has the actual .gif and not the special webm or mp4 format they display by default. – iKlsR Nov 11 '14 at 4:04
• @gandalf3 worked great! Mind putting that as an answer? – BlendingJake Nov 11 '14 at 17:40
