If the problem with sound in WebMs is that they are guaranteed to create screamers, why not add counter-measures specifically against this?
There could be a volume limit that checks the decoded audio for excessive clipping, and there could be a warning on thumbnails on any video with audio.
It's not like people can't post screamers on the two gif boards anyway.
Also, VP9 ever?
I would love a thumbnail with this thing stamped onto it for sound webms, even on /wsg/ where they're common.
Man, it's an image board. Webm uploads were made to look like standard images on purpose. And it could actually be even better integrated by removing the seeker/player bar completely.
Webm with sound only makes sense on /tv/.
>simple video sharing and music threads with the help of a video format similar to an image? Bullshit, we only need images and images only or else the website wont fall under a god damn name
Please, tell me a valid upside to being image only, other wise "its an image board" has no point
It's not like we don't already have images that alter when you click on them.
Well guess what, we already have webms. The idea that we cannot have webms, with sound, on boards like /a/ is ridiculous. The only difference between the current situation and having sound webms is that inferior mute webms will no longer proliferate. Oh, and you don't have to have a fucking crossboarder thread on /wsg/ 24/7.
