Inclusion of GIFV format in forums

Recommended Posts

GifV Media Tag

 

As many of you know, Imgur released a new "format" called GifV. It is pretty much just a h.264 video without controls that plays on loop.

 

The main reason for this, was to decrease filesize, as GIF is not an ideal format for longer files or larger. (there is also hope that mp4/webM format may be allowed in the future)

 

As more and more content on the site is moved towards this new format, we are left without means to link these as we would a GIF file.

 

I'm posting this here, mostly to see if there is interest or issues with this, at which point we can push for implimentation.

There you go again, disturbing the peace with your newfangled, anarchist ideas. 

 

I'm on to you, Kendjin. Watch yourself.

Idk if this means anything but for GIFV images on imgur you can just remove the V from the link and you'll still be able to post the GIF

I was aware of this but like Kendjin mentioned the filesize is smaller (& if I'm not mistaken they play more smoothly among other benefits)

Hype train. :Kappa:

 

Posting the .gifv URL is enough since the forums are set to auto-convert, otherwise wrap them in the tag.

Thanks for that :heart: hype train fer days

Wait, why didn't this work for me?

 

Just a quick reminder:

 

Have fun with these, but they should be included in spoiler tags to prevent them from auto-loading (and auto-playing) for slower devices and people with bandwidth quotas.

^this.
