GIFV/WEBM Image (/Video) Formats on Ghost Blog


UPDATE: GFYCAT embeds seem to work relatively seamlessly but I am still wondering if there is some native support that I’m missing.

Is there a method of getting these to embed and play naturally? GIFS work but they are notoriously massive.

For example: The two gifs I would like to display on my Ghost instance are 62mb and 128mb in standard GIF format whereas WEBM/GIFV are around 7mb. I can host them elsewhere (e.g. Imgur, which I have done) embed, but they do not properly play. It’s simply a box with the imgur share options and the first frame of the GIF.

Embedding them in the raw format DOES work, however having 200mb of images auto-load for a blog post is something I would like to avoid.

Has anyone figured out a way to do this, and if so, what am I missing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much!


Using a service dedicated to such things that fits your requirements (like gfycat) and embedding is the native support :slight_smile:
