Automatic embedding of GfyCat videos is broken due to GfyCat ending support for an old version of its API, which this and just about every other forum software uses.

If that’s gibberish to you, don’t worry. It is to me, too.

The bottom line is that if you post a GfyCat link like this:
Code: Select all
https://gfycat.com/revolvingbelovedgnatcatcher
it won’t embed properly and you’ll probably just get a big blank space where the video should be.

The solution is to right-click on the video and copy the direct link to the video, then to embed it within the “vid” tags like so:
Code: Select all
[vid]https://giant.gfycat.com/RevolvingBelovedGnatcatcher.webm[/vid]
Then you can see the video:



This is an issue with the forum software’s media embedding plugin. A fix is in the works, but I don’t know when it’ll be available.

So I’ve been in touch with the guy who maintains the formatting library for embedded media and he told me that he’s updated the library, but that the people who run this forum’s software will have to update the forum to use the latest version of the library before it’ll get fixed. Which doesn’t happen often.

So that sucks unless I figure out how to fix it myself.

I don’t think that’s a valid URL, but it looks like you were trying to upload it from your phone or computer.

The forum doesn’t presently allow uploading videos (but I can do it behind the scenes).

What I recommend is uploading it to GfyCat and posting it here.
