Vancouver Off-Topic / Current EventsThe off-topic forum for Vancouver, funnies, non-auto centered discussions, WORK SAFE. While the rules are more relaxed here, there are still rules. Please refer to sticky thread in this forum.
For instance the video above is 1.2 MB. In GIF form, it is 22.5 MB
Videos can be higher quality (GIF is only 256 color), higher frame rate (60 fps vs 10-20 fps) and 10X smaller.
Basically GIF is a super outdated way to share small videos, and various sites have developed better ways to share them instead. I want to make sure to offer as many as I can here, so people stop wasting memory and bandwidth with crappy GIFs.
I prefer GFYCAT over Imgur though. The sharing method is much easier, though they limit videos to 15 seconds.
Yeah I wish there was a way to force people not to post them. Just paste the URL into gfycat and it will convert for you. Or more likely, someone else already did and it just gives you the URL to share here.
