webm/html5 video/gfycat embed

So, gifs are nice, but the future is webm.

7MB gif


563k webm


(direct link to webm)

Embedded youtube, twitter, etc. and webp support would also be nice.


For reference, pasting a youtube video URL + hitting enter already turns it into an embed


Is there a standardized way to embed webms? I'm not a huge fan of gfycat.

On Discourse, they just show the video controls

On Twitter and such, they auto-play the webm once it is fully on screen. Otherwise it is paused behind movie controls. I like that approach.

Yes please!

Gifs are huge and quite a pain to load. HTML5 videos allow to post longer or/and better quality content.


I would also like to throw in a "+1" about this; hope to see more HTML5 options available!

Came here to see if there were any solutions and found my good Taco Bell buddy JP asking the tough questions :D

Hope we can get it figured out soon, cause my miniLAW page is kind of dookie in the meantime.
