Default Replacing 'bootanimation.zip' brings up original Android boot animation

So I just recently found a subreddit that has some loading icons that'd look great as a boot animation. So I downloaded the .gif, gif -> zip via Rom Toolbox, and install.

Nope. Just shows the default 'android' boot animation.

Tried to install the boot animation manually?

Nope. Same thing.

Finally try putting back the original boot animation.

Nope. Same thing.

What's up? Is there some hash that has to match for the animation to work? Or is there multiple places the animation zip has to be in? I don't think it's my animation because it does the same thing to the original animation. Any help? I can attach images/video if that helps.

bootanimation.zip can go in two locations

root/system/media

and/or

root/data/local (placing one here will override any bootanimation.zip in the system/media location)

I generally leave the stock bootanimation in the system/media location and place the one I want to try in the data/local location.
