Why isn't this file loading in the chat window?

I have a file at http://kuroma.me/stephanie.  I'm expecting the file to load inline when I paste it into a HipChat conversation(like when a file is loaded from Imgur or some other service)...but nothing is loading.  It works when I add a file extension to the path, but I would like to avoid doing that.  Is there some kind of markup I need to accomplish this?

Hi Ross,

HipChat currently doesn't recognize an image to preview in links with no file extension, unless we modify the logic on our end for specific services. If you wish, feel free to file a suggestion in our public facing tracker. Hope this helps!
