This is some next generation memeing right here
No, I think it’s Voyager memeing.
Seriously I can't win posting animated things here on Lemmy, that really needs to get fixed.
Your animated post worked for me!
It even autoplayed in the thumbnail while scrolling through All. (Using Voyager at the moment)
I have like four things I put a moderate-ish amount of effort into that I'm DYING to post but just can't since I want them to be actually viewable
I'm just glad Photon and Sync/Liftoff acutally show things correctly, so I can see other people's stuff as they were meant to be seen
I so feel you there. I have a couple in the chamber I've been holding off on cause of my inability to get reliable results.
I've been using eternity, which seems to mostly work for video files, I've not quite deciphered the pattern yet... maybe I just need to sing about my family dying in a shuttle crash, then I'll see it.
Haha, I'll try Klingon K-pop and we can compare notes....
Using a different client seems to help, since I think the issue has to do with the instance caching the image in a weird way, but it doesn't consistently work
If you sang Klingon K-pop it would just slay me.
I'd just repay you...
Yeah, it seems app dependant. Liftoff loads in-comment pics and gifs, but Voyager just shows them all as links.
To do this:
It's still not auto playing for me.. whhyyy.. is my webp format wrong? Why must you torture me embedding gods!?
It auto-plays in Firefox (on desktop and android) and Connect (on Android).
I think GIF is more widely supported that WEBP. You might try that?
Sometimes that's tricky though, because I've had lemmy auto-convert GIFs to WEBM
Uploading to lemmy is indeed less reliable than linking to an external source. I've given up uploading directly. I anyways use external sources.
Does this work (I converted to GIF from WEBP):
This works for me
I loaded fine using voyager for iOS. Just a bit choppy the first play
not posting mp4
Mp4s weren't working for me! I couldn't get them to autoplay, not that I managed to get webp format to play on every app/ platform either, but that is the current struggle.
Edit: classic Picard faceplam meme, +5 points to you my friend.
What does the initial text say?
"Not enough star trek memes"
It was a rush job, I made it too small.
I completely agree. I've never been inspired to actually make memes until I got involved here. Most have been crap but there were a couple of OK ones so far. Thanks for the constant quality posts!
