Can slow image loading Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Keep in mind that this extension can cause a far slower browsing experience. Using with extensions like Imagus will break those extensions.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

problems -
- it transcode inline static images and than they disapper
- r.e.s popup on image hover feature doesn't work with it

question -

- is this addon works on reddit only or it is worldwide
- is there a service like gyfcat which work for video-to-video online conversion and replace video with low-size,hq video

thanx for this addon.

Regularly breaks non-gif links Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a good thought, and there are several Chrome extensions that very successfully do what this one aims to. But I use it almost exclusively while browsing reddit, and I find that enabling it with RES's in-line image viewing regularly causes links that are not gifs, nor animated in any way, to not function in-line. I know it's a beta, so I'm not being harsh on the rating. But this is a deal-breaker for me, I'll have to uninstall it until this actually works without interrupting my other browsing.

Messes with Tumblr sites Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great add-on but it messes with Tumblr sites. White-/Black-listing would indeed be handy.

Love it! One suggestion though! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon! May I suggest a blacklist function for websites that we would like to not have this addon parse? The reason I ask is because I use weather-related animated GIFs of a local Doppler radar. The radar imagery changes with the weather, but the link always stays the same. Example: http://images.intellicast.com/WxImages/RadarLoop/bwg_None_anim.gif?gccfxDoRequest=1

Thanks for the addon!

Edit: Thanks for the reply! What I mean is it would be cool to be able to disable this addon from running on certain websites. Right now if it sees any gif it converts it to gfy. Which is fine 99% of the time for me. I just have an unusual gif-related weather website I use on a regular basis that always loads the same gif over and over again when converted to gfy.

Hi Matt

I am not familiar with Intellicast and not sure if I fully understand the problem yet.

I see the ?gccfxDoRequest=1 url parameter which means that the gif has been requested through the RES image expander.

Can you provide some more details and I am sure we can implement a solution.

Thanks!
Thomas

You won't go back Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Even though it makes imgur links take a little longer to show ["Checking image"] and gifs take longer to start playing, the end result is worth it. No more slideshow loading or premature looping, when it starts playing it plays all the way through perfectly. The ability to pause, scan through the frames, see the play length and when it loops are all very useful features.

Now if only imgur would natively support short HTML5 videos...

Excellent, I couldn't see myself using anything else Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It loads gif quick and painlessly. I love it.

A couple of issues with RES (W7 FF28) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When going through a gallery the first image shows fine but then the second image appears stretched. Resizing the image slightly causes it to pop back to the correct aspect ratio.

Clicking 'View images' produces a lot of broken links.

It can get hung up on non animated gifs.
> A suggestion, check to see if the gif is animated (more than 1 frame), if not just leave as the original link.

Hi webchimp

Thank you for the feedback.

> A suggestion, check to see if the gif is animated (more than 1 frame), if not just leave as the original link.

This is a known issue. One of the promises of the add-on is to save internet bandwidth for the end user. In order to find the frame size we need to download the gif in order to dig into the data and the promise gets broken.
I guess there could be some kind of server proxy between the browser and the gfycat service that can solve this. Maybe something for the future.
There may be a solution, but I have yet to find it ;-). Let me know if you have any ideas.

The gfycat service has been getting better lately. I think the service now detects non-animated gifs without creating errors. Instead the gif is stored on the gfycat server and gives us the url in the response data.

Eg. Try this: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/36/Sunflower_as_GIF.gif

Does what it says. See below if you have problems Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well with image expansions on reddit and other direct .gif links.

There is an issue with adblock interfering with gfycat requests. If you're having problems, try adding an adblock exception for gfycat.com. Discussion at http://redd.it/20k4hk

Doesn't work that well with RES (Reddit Enhancement Suite). Get lots of broken image links. Upon disabling this addon and trying to view images again using RES the images reappeared. Enabled this addon, tried to view image, broken image link.

Very fascinated in this, to the point that I'll keep it on my computer and updating, but I won't be using it till it starts to work better with RES.

Works great as long as the URLs are right Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon does exactly what it promises and makes gifs load much faster. It removes the loading wait that comes with the ancient .gif format.
However, it doesn't know how to handle errors in URLs. If a gif from imgur.com has a URL ending in .jpg, the addon doesn't realize it's a gif and ignores it. The addon seems to look at what's said in the URL instead of asking the image what type it is, causing it to fall for lies.

FINALLY a good solution to all those videos posted as animated GIFs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon works exactly as advertised, integrating with the gfycat service to transparently replace animated GIFs with HTML5 video. The compression ratio can easily reach 10:1 and the speed increase is extremely obvious. I haven't run into any weirdness or compatibility problems, it just works. I'd recommend this to everyone!
