Embedding GFY via Imgur and GFYCAT
« on: November 17, 2020, 10:18:02 AM »

Hello Admin,

I would humbly request that GFY embedding be enabled?

GFY is basically a term that means using video files instead of .gif for looping video content. They are better than .gif in every way (better quality, smoother playback, smaller size, browser handles them better, play controls, etc)

There are a few sites that do it, the biggest are imgur and gfycat. Is there a way you can enable auto-embedding for these sites the same way you do for youtube, instagram, etc?

Oh cool! It looks like Imgur is working great. That's awesome.

What is doing that? is it the "Simple Audio Video Embedder" plugin?

Seems like I just need to find out if Simple Audio Video Embedder supports gfycat, or if it can be added.

It does not, but I just emailed the developer to see if he'll add it.

EDIT: Well this is escalating quickly. I just paid the developer $15 to add GFYCAT support.

@admin , if he updates it with this feature, would you be willing to apply the latest version of Simple Audio/Video Embedder?

Holy shit, the guy already updated the plugin. Took him about 2 hours. Quickest return on $15 in a minute...

@admin, if you are interested, I guess you just need to update the plugin and enable GFYCAT in the site list.

Wow dude, I got the message for this in my inbox, set a note to check on writing a custom script for it today, but you already handled it! I am upgrading it right now. In the future I will try to respond quicker so you know I have have acknowledge the request, then if I can't do it we can escalate it beyond that.

It's working but appears to only be embedding one GFYCAT per post. I'll email the developer.

Below you should see two GFYCAT followed by more text and then a youtube embed:

gfycat one

https://gfycat.com/weightyhairyjuliabutterfly

gfycat two

https://gfycat.com/unlawfulperiodickittiwake

more text more text more text you should see this followed by a YT embed
