I can never get those to work, I think DJ includes them in skull sessions often. I use Firefox, with Ad and Flash Blockers. And can it be embedded or does it have to be linked?

That does look freakin sweet though, the pause and reverse buttons are a nice touch.

You should be able to click the little link icon on Gfycat and then use the Youtube embed option on the post here. Simply copy the iframe code. I wonder if this weighs on the server any more or less; I would imagine it isn't too different since gfycat seems to be pretty fast. ...Jason? Here's a nice source for those that are interested.

Wouldn't work for me, kept saying I needed embed code or URL

Yup, that's exactly what I did.

Seems to work fine for me from Chrome doing exactly that:

Those are pretty sweet!

But you have 11W whitelisted for ads, right?

Hmmm, I wonder if it were served up via JavaScript if it would work. That may be worth testing.

It "works" but I have to play it as a video. At that point you may as well embed a YouTube video. Interrupting my tunes while I should be working....

Does anyone else have problems with embedding from IE?

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Why would anyone use IE when there are any other options? It's 2014

I mean, a lot of workplaces still limit employees to just IE.

Funny part is they called a foul on the guy in blue.  The Ref was pretty questionable for a game of this stature.

Considering my page still says it's loading after a couple minutes, on a page with only 5 "gifs," I'd say this might be more trouble than it's worth in terms of potential to load slowly/crash a page etc. Just my opinion.

Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.

It claims to save on bandwidth, I'll have to see when I get home and use my phone to tether to my laptop, gifs are a no go on mobile

It doesn't seem too mobile friendly. Works fine on the desktop.

So do these work better or go back to using GIF...
