I'm having way too much trouble with gifcat and imgur and trying to load these damn things properly. None of them seem to work for me.

fuck the system

Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

Like yop said in the first post update your browser lol

If it's not working either you are running an extremely old version of the browser or there is something wrong with your pc/browser.

By virtue of the way these work they should actually load and work better than gifs ever did.

You don't get how to update your browser? Or how to post gifs?

Honest question.

Yeah from the wording in the posts so far I can't tell if Channy can't embed them into the post or if they won't play for her lol.

I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE ;-;



...but seriously, when I was looking/comparing from Yop's original post it sounds like there's just the one part of a link you copy to embed, just like a youtube video, as opposed to a img, which has the whole link... but I tried a couple and looking on gifycat and just... can't find that one secular piece?? I do the whole inspect element business too.

For imgurs gifv's only copy and paste this portion of the url



into a [ gifv] [ /gifv] code, no spaces between the brackets.
The result is




edit:

Yop I was looking at some past posts where I posted gfycats and it seems like all of them feature the distorted stretchyness even though when first implemented several months ago they definitely were not there.

Perhaps gfycat changed something recently that is causing it? Might be best to disable gfycats here since they can make a page really long haha.

Yes gfycat is just [ gfycat] [ /gfycat] and then the 3word name in the url




and your result is this
(SPOILER)





The problem is that for some reason right now gfycat's player is sending the actual control portion of it about 1000 feet south of where it needs to be

Gfycat also for some reason doesn't follow the rules and resizes itself to fit on the forums layout and will instead stretch it as necessary.

So then...

Channy, were you using the Imgur tag to try to post gfycat images? Could that be it?

IDK what's up with the gfywossname, I'm tempted to just remove it. It's relatively easy to move a video from gfycat to imgur if need be.

Also gifv only works with imgur. TL;DR
