    This is great! I only wish the volume could be changed, instead of only having the option to mute it.

    now that it plays back Webms in the official client in the canary version. how about adding support for auto-playback and looped playback. 1-2sec webmloops and no automatic loop is murder.

    Being able to upload .webms and play them on PC and Mobile would be great. They can have the same size cap (Standard 8MB/ Nitro User 50MB) as images and gifs right now.I just want a way to share videos without having to upload them to other websites.

    I will subscribe to a year of Nitro if this is implemented within the next month.

    please add .webp too!! it's frustrating when i add a webp, it shows up, then it disappears. isn't discord based on electron, which is based on chromium?

    been working on this for over a year! how about some more priority :*(

  • cerealkiller commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    gif is a terrible format, webm, if we could actually get more software to support its playback, is so much better in every way. This is taking way too long. Please give it more priority.

    It would be nice to do this instead of either:

    a. making everyone download a video then run it to watch it

    b. take a while to upload an unlisted youtube video
