HTML5/webm/gifv support

Postby Banedon » Wed Apr 08, 2015 8:00 am

A lot of the new gif technology that's being used for sports clips on the web aren't supported for direct linking phpbb. For example, the popcorn baseball catch that I posted a min ago is only 1mb in size under webm format, but is almost 25mb in a gif format, which is what I had to post it as here if I wanted to embed it.

I'm not at all familiar with PHPBB extensions, or versions and what the capability of supporting these formats are, but it'd be nice if the site could manage those.

I wonder if they're supported by the newest release of phpbb.

So I just checked for an extension that will support gifv again, and came across this extension, which supports a LOT of media files, includeing gfycat, Imgur (gifv) and a ton of other sites, without using BBCode. It's listed as a beta, but thought I'd mention it.

I'm about to leave for a trip, but I'll get it installed this weekend if you remind me.

Forgot to bring it up the last few weeks, but if you have time this weekend maybe...possibly?
