Gif < WebM
GIFs are from the 80s. Animated GIFs are from the early 90s. Technology has changed a little since then. Computers are spectacularly more powerful. Connections are insanely better. These screens of ours aren’t exactly limited to VGA resolution.
In addition, we've had more than 20 years to figure out better ways of doing compression, and maintaining a better balance between compression and quality. Not that /b/ will do a good job of handling that balance, but when used right the WEBM result will always be superior to the GIF.
In that time VHS died and DVD replaced it. Then DVD died and Blu-ray replaced it. Think about that, the animated GIF came about in the day and age of VHS tape. Minor revisions since, but bandaids at best.
It's time to let go of the animated GIF gramps.
If you know how to strip an audio track from a video to comply with moot’s no audio requirement, all you need after that is Miro Converter to create a WEBM. It's drag, drop, select WEBM and click. Not rocket science. If you're more technically literate, WEBM gives you access to modern video editing software to create your content with the confidence that it’ll translate well. GIF didn’t always.
But what really does it for me is that you fuckers have been using the same damn, stupid, typically low res GIFs for the last 20 years. Yes, the first batch of WEBMs on /b/ are going to be stupid ass partials of YouTube videos and movies, but some OC is going to come alongside that. That alone wins it for me.
Seriously, dump the GIF. (And your CD player while you’re at it!)
webm offers many advantages over animated GIFs—namely superior image quality, support for more than 256 colors, and reduced file size.
all of which moot has throttled.
res can not be more than 2048x2048 pixels, and they have to be less than 3 MB in size.
Plus there is browser compatibility issues, mobile issues, and of course increased security issues.
Sorry anons, webm is better than gif in some environments, but 4chan is not one of them.
>Using an iPad
>a fucking iPad
SHOOBY DIGGITY DAGGEDY DOOBY WOOOOOOOO
>Use 4chanX or
>Use Chrome and right click or
>Create a userscript that sets the loop property to true for direct webm links
On another note, I'm curious about what use WebM could get from tor, freenet, or other such methods. Highly compressed video would help with the awful download speed.
>still no webm sudden gore/nigger/screamer frame in porn vids
What the fuck? Make it!
i use the tool linked in that post
dude if you think about it.. having sex gives you nothing but a 5 second orgasm... i came in 10 girls... its fun and shit but when you realize that it has no meaning then you will understand that there is more to life than sex...
When is this coming directly from phone cameras?
this makes it easier
Comparison of WebM quality to GIF
Why does my phone do this to some webm files? Not all of them though
This is fucking incredible.
Taste my OC in full HD glory, for the first time, you lucky fuckers.
WEBM < GIF!
I did a quick Google (!) but couldn't find any info on how they track original creators of files.
What metadata is in a webm that can be used to track the creator? Or is it just the uploader to any given site that can be ID'd?
what part of silent don't you understand?
the audio on webm's is the same as your mental status
only shitty thing is they don't auto loop in browsers. gifs can self auto loop by default
You know how sometimes people make movies or music videos or some shit with a grainy ass filter, or an old camera just to make it look like it's from the 80's or older; in the not to distant future people are going to be doing that shit but trying to make it look like gif quality.
And keep watching them :P
I can see these replacing GIFs nicely as a way to cut down to a specific niche of animation content in a thread, but in much higher res.
EG a thread filled with everyone's favourite short clips of girls cumming whilst being fucked.
Smaller file limits means more focus. Quite zen. I look forward to my zen double penetration collection. Oommmmmmmm
I tried to start a webm reaction thread a few hours ago but no one replied.
Goddamn I want this video, I tried to find it yesterday and all I got was the image set.
Also is it weird I recognized the dildos and shower before the girl?
I know, but as I see it (and looks to be its purpose) it's a much better version of the gif format. So it would be cool to save them and watch them with an image viewer as with gifs.
How the fuck do you save the videos as files that aren't html?
I'm having a hard time making good looking webm files that last long
Opening them in new standalone tabs stops looping.
You need to go to 4chan settings and enable inline image expansion and then just left click on them. They play right in the thread itself.
Annoying for full HD ones though.
>not using a monitor that supports 1920x1080
i've had that since forever
also, hover on image so i don't even have to click it
make no difference what resolution unless the webm is MORE than 1080p or some retarded vertical resolution, but even then i'll just middle mouse click it like i do with every other pic here
The sequence is too long for HD and this filesize.
Gotta drop either resolution or length, it's easily better than gif, but it desn't do miracles.
>>541123632 my first test from earlier. Had to scale down to get the full vid.
I always enjoy how insecure he looks.
I think Webm sucks on 4chan for 2 reasons.
1) Gifs autoplay on hover when using chrome plugins. Don't have to open in another fucking window to watch.
2) Webm does not auto loop. Fucking bullsh
Fix these and we can talk. Until then, fuck off.
>1) Gifs autoplay on hover when using chrome plugins. Don't have to open in another fucking window to watch.

It does both on my machine. Newest Firefox, no plugins.
Firefox for Android user here, the shit only works if you have the phone in landscape mode not portrait, needs to be in landscape when you load the thread and has to stay that way, if you switch even once it breaks
So, just using chrome hover plugins, it doesn't autoplay on hover and doesn't loop. Enabling image hover on 4chan settings fixes both of these.
So, webm on you fags. I'm down, now.
just stop it.
Watched the movie once, to many feels to watch it again.
torrented movie, next day went out and bought it, I just need it there.. to sit on my shelf.. and I don't need to explain anything to you.
Webm for me.
Reminds me of when I could not afford cable.
