Can we embed short MP4 animation inline in post?

(1/3) > >>

Nod5:
This post is to test if we can embed a short MP4 animation inline in DC forum posts. Here goes:

edit:

We can attach the .mp4 to the bottom of the post, but it then downloads rather than shows in the browser.

Attempts at embedding that did not work with an .mp4 file attachment

Also not working: embed animation from imgur server

Can you convert it into a gif?  I'm pretty sure that those work.

Stephen66515:
If you don't need audio - convert to GIF

Use these guys for that: https://cloudconvert.com/mp4-to-gif (I use them all the time)

If it has audio then upload it to YouTube then embed that here - you can set the video to unlisted on the upload options then it will only be viewable here and by anybody with a link :)

Testing GIFs.

Source imgur mp4 is attached to my first post above (44 kB)

I don't need audio, but mp4 file animations tend to have better quality and smaller filesize.

It's a mystery I'll never understand, but for some reason the internet seems to always converge on using the least efficient means possible of transmitting information.

Images of just words, when plain (or rich) text would be better. Resulting in lower quality and much larger filesize.
GIFs instead of proper video files. Resulting in lower quality and much larger filesize.
What's one of the best places to find and hear nearly any song in the world for free? It's at YouTube in video format. Resulting in a much larger filesize than necessary.
