Go to http://i.imgur.com/SMRHIkg.gifv and see if you can download it as a webm. Used to be able to, now it only allows you to save as a gifv. Why are they forcing their proprietary and shitty format on the web?

Well, no one is forcing you to visit that normiepile

>and see if you can download it as a webm.
I do, I just have to wget the corresponding URL.

>Why are they forcing their proprietary and shitty format on the web?
That's not even a format, that's a HTML page that automatically either loads a webm or a mp4 depending on your browser

>>52258437
fair enough, if you do a wget it works. They redirect if you try to go through the browser though
>>
>>52258451
They do it because you're requesting it with a Accept: text/html header. Simple to bypass.

If you feel you must keep accessing those webm without JavaScript by rewriting the URL you may have a browser extension for that.

But gifv is a billion times better because it works on all platforms

Webm only works on Google shit

>>52258916

>>
Who the fuck cares? If you do then fck off back to reddit right now
>>

>>

I use ublock and disable all 3rd party requests by default. I'm only allowing google on this website, but you honestly make a great point. I need to stop using 4chan because of google's grasp on here. I've been browsing around other sites such as 8᠎c᠎h᠎a᠎n, but I really like you guys.
>>
>>52259209
You seem to be having a difficult time understanding that gifv is just a wrapper around webm or mp4. Let me help clarify. The gifv format is just an html wrapper around a webm or mp4. You can still access the movie directly but web requests will redirect to the gifv. The gifv being an html wrapper around webm or mp4.
>>
>>52259799
Why don't they just use webm without all this shit?

ah, so you don't have a real answer then.

very well. i'll find someone who does.

>>52260102
Why are you on 4chan asking about imgur? Go ask @sarah if you want a real answer.
>>
>https://i.imgur.com/SMRHIkg.webm
What possible confusing reason could there be for introducing a new extension for a format that DOESN'T EVEN FUCKING EXIST?
>>
I just get my webm's from 4chan anyway
>>
>>52259196
pomf.se died, not many other choices.
>>
>>52259799
This. It's so the webm doesn't become the page, instead it sits inside of a player within the page.
>>
>>52258401
This. Vote with your feet.

cross compatibility for all the mobile scrubs
