webm is apparently supported by all current browsers.

ie & safari need a codec installing to support if not already installed on your system.

so I propose we start using html5 video in webm format for animated stuff around here instead of animated gif.

Photoshop doesn't save to that sort of video, so how is that going to replace GIF?

my god. that's your best excuse ? run what you have through a convertor or find a plugin.

safari is the only mainstream browser not supporting webm & for no good reason, so for a change I will rail on apple. fix your shit.

Why add more steps to the chain?You want us all to have to use a converter and a bunch of HTML just to post an image?

Seems you haven't thought it through from the user's point of view.

Also, can HTML5 video be set to loop automatically?

Just let everyone use whatever they want to use as long as it doesn't kill 56k'ers (are they still around?) internet connection :P

GIF's are great! They are small and animated!

post images as png or jpg as normal. was talking about video.

sure, use what you like, just trying to make a little progress.

depressingly, we can't because safari doesn't support webm which means skip safari or stick to animated gif.

the 'I can't be arsed converting to an optimal format' argument isn't worth addressing. that's just laziness.

animated gif is ok for some types of animation - with large blocks of the same colour, just not generic stuff moving in teh real world or non-trivial cg animations.

Your ideas have been noted, and filed, in the circular gray filing cabinet under my desk.

yeah - I know. reached the same conclusion too. :(

apparently apple has hardware video decode for mp4/h264 in its legacy hardware so can't support webm as it can't decode that fast enough in software. maybe this will change as new products are introduced.

html5 video supports multiple codecs so you could have full support by uploading each video in webm and mp4 format, but as you can't be arsed converting & uploading in one format, you're not lilkely to upload in two. tha interwebs rox.

Use this thread as a test-thread for your HTML5 video needs.

I'm all for improvement, but I've had far more problems with HTML5 video than I have with Flash video. It would be great to have an open standard, but I think it's still slightly in it's infancy, at least for the browsers.

Although they are not always small.

edit : for those who think this is unappropriate. You are probably right.

long hi-res animated gifs ftw.

if you're on a t1.

god I hate this - you have to request controls (why isn't that the default?) and have an inner source element.

mimimum to get an html video to play.

[video controls="controls"]
[source src=""/]

but with angle brackets.

wtf is wrong with :

[video src="myvid.webm"/]

can anyone with an ithingy see the video in this post ?
