Gfycat embeds are broken

Days ago it worked perfect. Like this…

But now it looks like this


WelloffKaleidoscopicCrossbill

I just right click, copy video URL, and paste that in

Hmm not sure @techapj can you have a look?

Fine, but this link not come from gfycat :confused:

Look with this…

The technique works with gfycat links, though. Right click, copy video URL (I’m using Chrome)

http://giant.gfycat.com/UnhappyNeatBluetonguelizard.webm

(note that not all gfycat links will use the ‘giant’ prefix – some will use ‘zippy’ or ‘fat’)

@JP_ Yes is ok, you are right. I know that work fine with ( Right click, copy video URL), but previously also it working placing the link gfycat.

Like this

http://gfycat.com/UnhappyNeatBluetonguelizard

Now only work with (Right click, copy video URL).

These little embed’s here are the actual GIF’s not previews - it actually downloads the 47.1MB file here.
The one above that was 72.2MB.

Crazy GIF sizes.

When this issue is sorted, obviously they won’t be shown.

It was just a shock to load this page and see over 110MB of data download.

OUCH, that’s brutal. This needs to get fixed.
