WebM Support Added! Sazpaimon ## Admin ## 14/05/25(Sun)10:22 No. 8117 Stickied

Hey guys, just dropping by to let you know that WebM support is now being trialed. This means that you can now upload WebM files to enabled boards and have them be seen and used just like GIFs.

Some notes:
* Expansion works, but to shrink back down to a thumbnail, you can either click the file link in the file information area, or click and drag to the left of the video such that when your mouse leaves the left edge of the video, it will shink. This is to allow for pausing of WebMs. Expand all images will work the same as well.
* As mentioned in the Previous thread, your file must not contain an audio stream for it to be accepted. Uploading a video with an audio stream attached to it will give you an error upon upload.
* Filesize limitations of the board you are in still apply. This is usually 5MB.
* Your file must be no longer than 3 minutes (180 seconds) in length or it will be rejected.
* Files with vertical or horizontal resolutions greater than 2048 pixels will be rejected.
* As this is still a trial phase, support has only been enabled on /gif/, /b/, and /7ch/. As time passes and when we're sure that this is stable, more boards will be added.
* Once again, as this is a trial phase, there may be bugs. Please report any issues you get with files being rejected or not rejected when they shouldn't be to this thread.

Naturally everyone cannot be expected to grasp how to create compatible WebMs, thankfully there is a nice tool to help. Check out https://github.com/WebMBro/WebMConverter. It'll help you get started making content right away.
For those more comfortable in the command line, check this for a good command line reference.

If anyone has any more questions, please ask them here.

>* Your file must be no longer than 3 minutes (180 seconds) in length or it will be rejected.
Any particular reason for that?

Sazpaimon 14/05/27(Tue)04:30 No. 8126

The main goal here is to have a good alternative to GIFs. 3 minutes is pretty long for a GIF, and really steps into "video" territory (ignoring the fact that, yes, WebM is in fact a video format) and you may be better off posting it to an appropriate video site and posting the link to that instead.

Basically it's arbitrary, but has some amount of logic to it.

this fork works good too:

you have to install avisynth to use it:

it allows you to edit the video before turning it into a webm. You can trim, crop, resize, etc.

I'm enjoying the feature so far and look forward to the implementation of sound in the future.

Yeah, yeah, I saw folks in the other thread like >>8092 complain about
>Problem with that is people would make screamers
but that's supposed to be worse than urethra fucking how?

Sazpaimon 14/05/31(Sat)23:12 No. 8133

My reason for not wanting sound is >>8031. My opinion may change but I'm not expecting it to.

Please add webm support to /men/.

Sazpaimon ## Admin ## 14/06/02(Mon)20:33 No. 8140

Done! Added support to /men/ and /s/. Also /a/ by request as well.

Anonymous 14/06/05(Thu)01:33 No. 8141


I'm getting this error:
413 Request Entity Too Large

when trying to post 4 .webm files on /men/ at a time. They're around 2.5mb each.

Anonymous 14/06/05(Thu)01:54 No. 8142

now it says, "Please make sure your total uploads don't exceed 5242880 Bytes"...which is 5MB.

That's to low of a set limit for people uploading more than one webm file at once. It should be 5MB per file. Will it be set it higher to 10-20MB for multi-uploads?

Anonymous 14/06/05(Thu)05:05 No. 8143

It can complement GIF but it's not going to supplant it because it's a lossy format. APNG or lossless WebP are the formats for that.

Anonymous 14/06/09(Mon)06:18 No. 8148


is there anyway for the "Please make sure your total upload does not exceed 5242880B"
to be set higher for multi-uploads?

Sazpaimon 14/06/12(Thu)09:29 No. 8151

Sorry, the size limit applies to the total size of the files being uploaded. This has always been in place even before WebM. I'll take it under consideration to change it to a per-file thing but I'm not planning on it.

You are now aware that even ancient PowerPC Macs support WebM.

Anonymous 14/08/30(Sat)18:19 No. 8300

And yet nobody made a WebM player for older distributions of Ubuntu.

WebM seems to be pretty stable now, so I've enabled it for all boards. Enjoy!

Awesome! Too bad I haven't bothered saving any fitting WebM files lately. D:

Anonymous 14/09/27(Sat)13:19 No. 8340

Alternatives are always good but I sincerely hope it doesn't supplant GIF's.
Not only because it crashes my preferred browser but it breaks my viewing flow.
Have to use another program entirely to view my folders.

Anonymous 14/12/29(Mon)07:32 No. 8470

Please add audio support for .webm
7chan is really lacking in this regard.

I don't see why you can't allow it except for screamers. If someone posts a screamer, then surely we can ban them for inappropriate content on that board?
I'm okay with screamers being posted on boards like /b/ though.

What the fuck are you doing man?

Sazpaimon 15/01/04(Sun)10:02 No. 8488

My intention of adding WebM support wasn't for video posting, but to have a good alternative to animated GIFs. There are already so many other places where you can upload and embed video, why would you want 7chan to be one of them?

No, I'm actually asking this. Can you give me some examples of posting a video here as opposed to any other relevant video site?

I didn't think I would want sound either but there are other boards with WebM support that also support sound and it works just fine. No screamers, spam, etc. so I'd like to see sound added at some point in the future.

Anonymous 15/01/19(Mon)11:12 No. 8498

The main bonus for .webm for me is the audio feature. I can share videos without having to make a Youtube account for SFW videos or a porntube account for NSFW videos.
Otherwise, .webm is just a really smooth looking .gif.

If you keep your eyes on the top right corner, you can see this guy walk up to the crowd and (mostly) vanish. Looks like his flaming remains were ejected upward, then toward the lower left corner after knocking something big and red off the ceiling.

He certainly killed and injured a number of people, but if that was his goal.... why didn't he walk further into the crowd first?

It's almost as if his suicide vest went of prematurely.
