I have tried this plugin 1.2.0 buy it doesn't works. Maybe I did something wrong or maybe it is too old. Anyone can confirm this plugin is outdated?
@shinyidol I love WebM!
Not sure what's required to show a webm plugin, though? Natively supported by browsers?
They display natively, but only when called by a player or <video>. To get this working a simple plugin would let a user embed a .webm file and fill in the <video></video> for them. 4Chan capped theirs to being 15 seconds long and no sound.
<source src="url" 'video/webm;codecs="vp8, vorbis"' </video>``` It would be nice if imgur supported it, but that doesn't look like it will happen. I'm seeing people make Chrome extensions that will just see the link and display, such as this https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/webm-for-neogaf/gcjkaaggachnbhepejjhfacpldjflffl
Going to be looking into this this evening, seems like a good time to learn how to make a plugin.
Forget about WebM. GIF's are where it's at:
imgur are adding support for webm as a fallback to their own version of it called gifv.
No gif could express how good this is. any gifs uploaded to imgur will automatically be converted to gifv. All existing gifs have been converted too. Not sure how we go about supporting it though just yet.
LEt's try this:
Wow, that works surprisingly well. Gfycat bankedon WebM with an mp4 fallback, but imgur seems to have taken the opposite approach, and it's working well for them.
How do I get this working? I am trying to allow embed of gifv. Here, it embeds just fine. On my board, it just pastes as a hyperlink.
oh it needs an api. is it a pay service only?
perfect! where in the admin do i enter the api info? i dont see a section in the plugins drop down.
@xanthrop did you rebuild and restart?
@pitaj yes, but I didn't refresh my admin page afterwards. Thank you again!
